National Security has increasingly been seen now from the lenses of the local level. Local governments are the first line of defense that must respond soonest an emergency takes place. Considering the archipelagic character of the country plus the erratic weather conditions lately bringing torrential rains intermittently, local governments should be prepared to respond accordingly.
Along with the right procedures, local governments should have the right equipment to be able to respond effectively. And this is true for both natural and man-made disasters. For this purpose, we have set up a working partnership with private organizations that allows us to facilitate the acquisition of the right equipment for any LGU. LOGODEF can further integrate disaster risk reduction training or other assistance, depending on the request of the host LGU.
