As mandated under RA 10121, the Municipal Government of Bay reorganized the Municipal Risk Reduction and Management Council by virtue of Executive Order No. 072- 2021 Reorganization of Local Disaster Risk Reduction And Management Council (LDRRMC). The said EO aims to establish an effective and efficient Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council as a vital arm of the local government in the implementation of its DRRM programs, projects, and activities. Pursuant to the provision of RA 10121, the MDRRMC shall be headed by the Municipal Mayor as the Chairperson.

The organization visualizes the strengthening of the Local Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council that will become a catalyst for concerted and well-coordinated efforts for proactive disaster risk reduction and management from the municipality down to the barangay level. Through a well-defined organizational structure, streamlining and harmonizing of activities at all levels will be ensured and the support of various government and non-governmental agencies will be maximized. Furthermore, the MDRRMC structure demonstrates a functional relationship between key government players in disaster preparedness, mitigation, response, and rehabilitation. Thus, it is expected that a well-coordinated provision of support/assistance among government agencies will be achieved to complement the existing resources of the municipality as well as hasten the delivery of basic services.


The Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office is working towards the goal of a secure, healthy, wealthy, and resilient town. It encompasses a holistic vision of the key elements of disaster management: from risk assessment, disaster risk reduction, and early warning and emergency alerts, to preparedness, response, relief, recovery, and rehabilitation.


    1. Approve, monitor, and evaluate the implementation of the MDRRM Program and regularly review and test the plan consistent with other national and local planning programs;
    2. Ensure the integration of disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation into local development plans, programs, and budgets as a strategy for sustainable development and poverty reduction;
    3. Recommend the implementation of the forced or pre-emptive evacuation of local residents, if necessary; and
    4. Convene the local council once every three (3) months or necessary.
