DEWS

DEPLOYMENT OF EARLY WARNING SYSTEMS in DISASTER-PRONE AREAS

     The DEWS is a project undertaken in cooperation with the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (DOST-PAGASA) and DOST Regional Offices. It involves the installation of hydrometeorological devices (hydromets) such as Automated Rain Gauge (ARG) and Water Level Monitoring Station (WLMS) in different river systems and secondary tributaries to provide data that will be useful in protecting the lives, property and livelihood in various communities. To complement these systems of hydrometeorological devices, an early warning system composed of sirens or beacons will be installed in communities affected by floods. The use of sirens or beacons as early warning of natural hazards is one of global best practices in informing unsuspecting communities thus improving disaster risk reduction.

 

OBJECTIVE

         To be able to regularly monitor and maintain Weather Monitoring Devices installed in strategic locations in the region that can give accurate and efficient hydrometeorological data to customers. 

SCOPE

         This procedure covers all activities to be performed during the monitoring and maintenance of deployed WMDs.
