Abstract

The paper’s primary intention was to identify the level of awareness, compliance, and implementation of the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) of the flood-prone public elementary schools in the division of Butuan City, Philippines in the school year 2019-2020. Moreover, it also aimed to determine the relationship between the level of awareness and the level of compliance of the teachers in the DRRM program, particularly in flood disasters, and its consistency in the level of implementation as a basis for a localized intervention plan by utilizing mixed method design. Survey questionnaires were administered among the randomly selected 562 participants to obtain information on the study. The numerical data were analyzed using the descriptive-correlational method through the weighted mean and Pearson Product Moment Correlation and an inductive type of thematic analysis for the qualitative part. The results revealed that the participants have very satisfactory awareness in the fields of enabling environment, safe learning facilities, disaster risk management, and risk reduction and resilience education and have shown satisfactory compliance in the same fields. The implementation of the flood DRRM was satisfactory. Thus, it further showed that the level of awareness and the level of compliance has a significant relationship but none of them has a significant relationship with the level of implementation. Findings indicated that flood DRRM is not emphasized in the schools. It was concluded that giving focus on school DRRM and conduct of relevant flood DRRM activities are important to establish flood resilience in schools.
