ANGELES CITY.- One of the major roles of DILG is to ensure that LGUs are disaster resilient and compliant to Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010 or Republic Act of 10121. This mandates LGUs to facilitate and support risk assessment and contingency planning at the local level. On October 2-4, 2018, the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office conducted citywide Earthquake Contingency Plan Formulation Workshop. The participants were members of the CDRRM Council, wherein the DILG is a member. The objective of the training is to update the City's Contingency Plan. The Office of Civil Defense were the resource speakers during the three day activity.

ACDRRMO head, Francis Pangilinan said 'that the council will not stop looking for needs and gaps in the disaster contingency plan for its continuous improvement and should be updated annually to further develop and capacitate the previous year's plan.']
The activity is part of the directive of the Department of Interior and Local Government to harmonize clusters and each cluster would have their own function during an earthquake.

Meanwhile, this year 2018, Angeles City Government through its Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (DRRMC) won the 20th Regional Gawad Kalasag award for highly urbanized cities given by the Regional Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office (DRRMO) Central Luzon and represented Region 3 in the National Gawad Kalasag Award.
