Issues Involved:

  • - DepEd Discourages Schools to be

used as evacuation centers because of the ff reasons:

  • 1. Disruption of Schedules of Students

  • 2. Sanitary / Utility Costs of Facilities

  • 3. Destruction of Properties (which teachers are blamed)

  • 4. Not fit to function as one (temporary shelter)

  • 5. Not all people can be accommodated.

Issues:

  • - What happens to these structures after the calamity? How are they maintained.

  • - They are made already as permanent shelters Since it takes time for the government to build relocation sites.

  • - Sanitary Issues

  • - Order issues (distribution of food and goods for example.)

  • - Humanitarian Issues (Child Abuse for example)

Setting Priorities:

  • 1. CHILDREN / STUDENTS

  • 2. Teachers and Staff

  • 3. Nearby People in the Community

Basic Considerations for both:

PRIMARY

SCHOOLS

  • - Safety of Students

  • - Accomodation:

(Refuge) Basic Necessities

(School) Learning Environment (Refuge) Comfort

  • - Convenience

  • - Space Planning

  • - Evacuation/Emergency Plan

  • - Traffic Flow of Students

  • - Traffic Flow of Evacuees

Observations:

  • - Evacuation Plans / Emergency Plans are being observed in every schools through drills.

  • - Teachers manages drills during these events.

  • - Schools as the primary centers for learning, serve as second homes for children.

  • - Almost part of their entire childhood (almost) is in school.

  • - Almost 9 hrs /day in 10 months their in school?

Issues Involved:

  • - How safe are schools? (child-friendly environment, structurally sound?)

  • - How prepared are these facilities when there is unexpected calamities?

Question(s) to be considered:

  • - As observed, why do they have to evacuate the vicinity / structure? When they could be safe inside their rooms?

Solution:

  • - Create Dedicated Evacuation Centers that can accommodate more people (longer time for them to recover.)

Relevant Issues:

  • - People (calamity victims) become dependent/enjoying the benefits from donations.

  • - How will these accommodate victims for future calamities?

REFUGEE CAMP / CENTER

Goals:

Questions to ponder:

  • - What kind of Modular System to adapt for learning centers.

  • - Availability of Materials in the local setting

  • - Alternatives.

  • - Safety and Security of Children in their school with/without calamities.

  • - Fast Recovery for victims.

  • - Adaptive Spaces to cater also evacuees from outside the vicinity. What now?

    • - In evacuation procedures, the last procedure is to stay in an open place where there is no obstruction (falling debris).

    • - After which, the question is, what now?
