As part of the implementation of the Department of Science and Technology – Community Empowerment thru Science and Technology (DOST – CEST) Program in Region 1, the Provincial Science and Technology Center – Ilocos Sur (PSTC-IS) facilitated the deployment and training on the Automated Weather Station system (AWS) of the Local Government Unit of Salcedo, Ilocos Sur held last month.

According to Engr. Jordan L. Abad, Provincial S&T Director of the PSTC–IS, the provision of the AWS is part of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management / Climate Change Adaptation (DRRM/CCA) of the CEST program. This aims to capacitate the communities through the generation of timely weather data for preparedness and resiliency during the occurrence of natural hazards, especially during typhoons, Engr. Abad added.

The installation of AWS and user’s training is part of the Project “NaKaSaGaNa: Naglilinang ng Kahandaan sa Sakuna Gamit ang Napapanahong-teknolohiya”, which aims to boost the resiliency of the people in the municipality.

The deployment aims to strengthen, enhance knowledge, and appreciation of the Science and Technology programs, projects, and activities through the provision of the S&T intervention to the people as well as to provide them the mechanism for disaster preparedness and mitigation. In addition, the intervention will help the community in monitoring the weather conditions, providing crop advisories, creating predictions, and formulating plans for a more resilient community.

Five (5) DRRM personnel of LGU Salcedo were capacitated on the installation and training on the operation and maintenance of the station.

Mayor Graziella Gironella-Itchon of Salcedo expressed her gratitude to the DOST. “Agyaman kami iti DOST ta ti ili mi a Salcedo ti maysa a napili nga maikkan iti weather station tapno makatulong iti DRRM response unit ti Munisipyo iti kasta, mapadaras iti panagiwaragawag iti impormasyon kadagiti kailyanmi, Mayor Itchon said.

Raymond Ardee F. Soriano, Science Research Specialist I and DRRM personnel of DOST Regional Office I, served as the resource person during the activity.
