The Quezon City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (QC DRRMO) has recently conducted a close-out meeting to comprehensively assess the city's actions and response strategies in light of the recently held Barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan Elections (BSKE).

Chaired by the QC DRRMO Officer-In-Charge, Ma. Bianca Perez, the meeting was attended by key members of the QC DRRM Council. The primary aim of this close-out meeting was to evaluate the efficacy of disaster risk reduction and management measures employed during the election period.

In the spirit of collaborative governance, the QC DRRMO extended their heartfelt appreciation to the various city departments and agencies that actively contributed to ensuring the smooth and secure conduct of the BSKE. These partnerships played a vital role in making the elections successful while minimizing risks and safeguarding the overall well-being of the community.


As a key responsibility of local government, conducting elections necessitates a high degree of preparedness to address potential risks and emergencies effectively. The QC DRRMO continues to underscore the importance of preparedness, response, and cooperation among government departments, underscoring their dedication to the safety and peace of the city during significant events like the BSKE.

To that end, the successful return of ballot boxes to QC Hall represents one essential step in closing the chapter of this election season. The meeting's participants discussed valuable insights and observations to further improve the disaster risk management strategies and collaborative efforts for future electoral events.

In recognizing the commitment of each participating department and agency, QC DRRMO and the city government emphasized the importance of such collaborations in realizing a resilient and prepared city where critical events like elections can proceed with minimal disruptions and enhanced safety for all citizens.

The close-out meeting serves as a proactive and accountable step toward ensuring that the lessons learned from this electoral experience will enhance the city's ability to respond to emergencies and manage potential risks more effectively in the future.
