CITY OF SAN FERNANDO — The Pampanga Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC), led by Governor Dennis “Delta” Pineda, received the prestigious “Beyond Compliant” rating at the recent National Gawad KALASAG Seal and Special Awards for Excellence in Disaster Risk Reduction and Management and Humanitarian Assistance.

Governor Delta’s Special Assistant and PDRRM Chief Angelina Blanco accepted the award on his behalf during the 23rd Gawad Kalasag national awarding ceremony held at the Manila Hotel, Ermita Manila, on December 11, 2023.

Pampanga is one of the provinces nationwide to secure the “Beyond Compliant” rating in the Local DRRM Councils and Offices category.

“Alay po namin ang award na ito sa lahat ng mga Kapampangan. Mula ng panahon ng pinatubo, nagbunga po yung pagka-resilient ng mga Kapampangan sa tulong ng mga naunang gobernador hanggang sa pamumuno ngayon ni Gov Delta,” she said

The PDRRM chief also affirmed the council’s ongoing implementation of programs and projects to elevate disaster resiliency standards from the province to the communities.

In addition to Pampanga, the municipalities of San Luis and Minalin also achieved the “Beyond Compliant” rating.

NDRRMC Chair and National Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro Jr. commended all awardees for setting the tone and reaching high levels of disaster preparedness and response in their respective municipalities.

“The spirit of unity that you give is the biggest asset that the Filipino community has. To be resilient, to face any challenges that may come along the way. Iyan ang ispirito na taglay ng mga awardees natin for today,” Teodoro said.

The award marks the second consecutive year that Pampanga has been recognized with the “Beyond Compliant” rating by the NDRRMC.
