Philippine Institute of Civil Engineers (PICE)
  • PICE has 96 chapters nationwide.
  • Forged a Memorandum of Agreement with the
    Association of Structural Engineers of the
    Philippines, Inc. and the NDCC to formalize the
    partnership in providing services to the public
    during times of emergencies and helping them
    mitigate and prepare for disasters.

Association of Structural Engineers of the
Philippines, Inc. (ASEP)
  • ASEP is a professional society affiliated with
    the PICE, comprising civil engineers who
    specialize in structural engineering.
  • In 1996, ASEP was the initiator of a
    volunteer-inspector program for structural
    emergencies.

Disaster Quick Response Program (DQRP)
  • DQRP underscores the role of civil engineers in
    responding to natural or technological disasters
  • Assess damage
  • Identify residual hazards
  • Advise on rescue efforts inside damaged
    structures or facilities
  • As of May 2005, 194 volunteer evaluator have
    current identification cards jointly issued by
    OCD-NDCC, PICE and ASEP.

Disaster Quick Response Program (DQRP)
  • 146 newly trained volunteers are in the process
    of receiving similar official awards.
  • Emphasis is on post-earthquake response, as
    quick-onset, regional earthquake disasters are
    recognized to possibly create a shortage of
    government engineers available to respond.
  • DQRP intends to continue the training and
    enlistment of new volunteers, as well as the
    re-training of current volunteers.

Disaster Mitigation and Preparedness Strategies
(DMAPS)
  • PICE expanded their view on disaster management.
  • PICE participates not only in response efforts
    but in planning for mitigation and preparedness
    measures as well.
  • In 2004, DMAPS was developed and redefined in
    2005.
  • Five main strategies
  • Disaster Maps
  • Hazard Maps
  • Vulnerability Maps
  • Disaster Risk Management Frameworks
  • Forums

Disaster Mitigation and Preparedness Strategies
(DMAPS)
  • Mitigation Efforts
  • Understanding and implementing of safety
    regulations and building codes
  • Planning for flood control systems like dams and
    levees
  • Preparedness Efforts
  • Partake in public information campaigns
  • Participate in contingency plan formulation
  • Conduct risk evaluation of existing structures
