The Quezon City government has released the Handa Ako (I’m Ready) book that hopes to improve disaster preparedness in the city.

The book is a primer on disaster awareness and preparedness for children written by Liwiliwa Malabed and published by Adarna House.

Handa Ako features easy to understand basic information about disasters and disaster preparedness with colorful illustrations by Mia Lagos.

“I will give a copy to my son because he’s always asking me about what to do in times of disaster,” Quezon City Mayor-elect Joy Belmonte said.

Around 15,000 copies of the book will be distributed to daycare centers by the city Social Services and Development Department, the Quezon City Public Library, and the city’s public elementary and secondary schools.

Quezon City Mayor Herbert M. Bautista handed over copies of the book to Education Secretary Leonor Briones during the recent inauguration of classrooms at the Flora A. Ylagan High School.

“Whether natural or man-made disasters, having pamphlets or books to read is really important for students. They can bring the book home, but as much as possible after they use it, students should leave it for other kids to read,” Bautista said.

The book is a project of the Quezon City Public Affairs and Information Services Department in cooperation with the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office.
