The Philippines is one of the most vulnerable countries in the world for experiencing natural disasters such as: Earthquake, Fire, Volcanic Eruption, Typhoon, Storm, Flood, Storm Surge and Landslides.The Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) expect a 7.2 magnitude earthquake resulting to movement of the West Valley Fault which will result to a devastating impact in Metro Manila. Experts predict it has a recurrence interval of 400 to 500 years. The last major earthquake originating from the fault was recorded in 1658 or 357 years ago.
We have extensive Crisis and Emergency Planning and testing capabilities for both on and offshore operations. We can conduct a gap analysis of a current system or design and implement a Crisis Emergency Management Plan. We can conduct scenario based training and for staff and senior management on the activation and procedures for testing a plan. A relevant example of our most recent work is the Crisis Management Team (CMT) and Emergency Management Team (EMT) testing for the German Government Aide Organization, in the Philippines.
Hazard assessment, likelihood of the occurrence, severity and duration of various hazards are evaluated to Philippine legislative requirements and international best practice, enabling the identification of what elements and assets are at risk and the causes of their vulnerable conditions
