DSWD orients ushers, escorts of DRMD guidelines

BUTUAN CITY, May 25 - The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Field Office Caraga through its Disaster Response and Management Division (DRMD) has conducted the one-day Orientation for the Identified Ushers and Escorts of DRMD on the Decorum and Guidelines for the Facilitation of Delivery of the Humanitarian Cargoes to local government units held at Grand Palace Hotel, this city.

On top of the agency’s objective on ensuring the availability, accessibility, and readiness of resources, as well as administrative support necessary before and during disaster operations, the orientation also underscored the importance of focusing the facilitation of technical assistance to the staff who are identified to usher and escort the food and in-kind items being requested by the LGUs.

One of the resource speakers, Mr. Angel Bert Casimilio, SWO-II, highlighted that their task does not only start and end on simply accompanying the humanitarian cargoes but it also entails a lot of responsibilities such as ensuring the safety and the completeness of cargoes throughout the travel and until its delivery.

“We have to take all the necessary procedures/processes to make sure that all is handled well and these cargoes are properly stored and/or delivered,” cited Casimillio.

To encapsulate its cause, the event will highlight the worker's Integrity and Work Ethics; including the undertaking of their commitment. (DSWD-Caraga/JPG/PIA-Caraga)
