COTABATO CITY -- The Department of the Interior and Local Government in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao urged local government units in the region to develop their own disaster contingency plans.  

In an interview with DXMS Radyo Bida, DILG-ARMM risk reduction focal person Mauricio Civiles said this is needed to determine which particular areas are prone to disasters and what actions need to be done in preparation for such an eventuality.  

Civiles said that on the part of DILG-ARMM, they have initially developed operational plans for immediate response especially for human induced disasters.

This is aside from the regional, provincial and municipal risk reduction plans that are already in place.  

Civiles revealed that 12 towns in the region have no internal revenue allotment and rely solely on ARMM-Humanitarian Emergency Assistance and Response Team (ARMM-HEART) when disasters affect them.
