“Get ready, be prepared, you and all the hordes gathered about you, and take command of them”

Ezekiel 38:7

Davao de Oro is not spared from natural and human-induced hazards. Typhoon Pablo (Bopha) has left behind not only devastation and pain amongst those directly or indirectly affected, but it has engraved in our hearts and minds with humongous lessons to lived by. Lessons applied not only during times of disasters, but in calm moments where there are no emergencies or disasters.

The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (PDRRMO) is committed to deliver its services to the people of Davao de Oro. We envisioned a united, empowered, responsive, disaster-resilient and climate change adaptive local communities in the province through various Knowledge, Skills and Attitude enhancement and capacity building activities.

The PDRRMO will strive to enhance and keep raising the bar higher and higher in addressing the needs of the most vulnerable children, women, persons with disabilities and elderly, during emergencies and disasters and even in normal times. PDRRMO as mandated by RA 10121, will anchor on the four (4) thematic pillars of Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) namely: Disaster Prevention and Mitigation; Disaster Preparedness; Disaster Response and Early Recovery; and Disaster Rehabilitation and Recovery and aligned with recognized and established standards, policies, rules and regulations governing DRRM in the Philippines.

We will continue to develop our people in the various divisions/sections or units, Administration and Training; Operations and Warning; Research and Planning; and the Administrative Support Services Unit upholding its mission to “Protect the Dabaweños from all hazards through effective disaster risk reduction management and climate change adaptation mechanisms empowered by united and responsive stakeholders”.

We will practice our CORE VALUES of Innovation, Initiative, Teamwork, Creativity, Resilience, Competitiveness, and Passionate public service.
