The Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Service (DRRMS) is the Department of Education’s focal and coordination unit for Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, Climate Change Adaptation, and Education in Emergencies.
In recognition of the various disaster risks arising from natural and human-induced hazards, through Department Order (DO) no. 50 series of 2011, DepEd created the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, in line with the Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction Management Act of 2010 (Republic Act 10121). The office was elevated into a Service in 2015.
The DRRMS, as stipulated in its Charter, is tasked to:
- Empower the DepEd personnel, offices, schools and learners in ensuring safety and learning continuity;
- Institutionalize Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM), Climate Change Adaptation (CCA), and Education in Emergencies (EiE); and
- Strengthen the resilience of basic education in the context of natural and human-induced hazards.
In accordance with its mandate, the DRRMS has set its goals and outcomes to address the risks and impacts of natural and human-induced hazards confronting the basic education sector.
