The Regional Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Disaster Preparedness Committee, chaired by the DILG-10, held a meeting at the N Hotel, Kauswagan, Cagayan de Oro City on June 28, 2016 to discuss the La Niña Action Plan of the various member-agencies.  The Mines and Geosciences Bureau-10, although not a member of the Disaster Preparedness Committee, was urgently invited by the DILG-10 already on the afternoon as DILG-10 Regional Director Arnel Agabe wanted the presence of the MGB-10 in the meeting.

Chief Geologist Osin Sinsuat, Jr. hastily attended the meeting and presented the DENR-MGB National Geohazard Mapping and Assessment Program, focusing on the IEC component of the program on, “Information, Education, Communication (IEC) on Geologic Hazards and Disaster Awareness and Preparedness (Disaster Risk Reduction)” for local officials, primarily, punong barangays and barangay disaster risk reduction and management officers (BDRRMOs).
