(We are aiming with the OCD and NDRRMC to have a real change, to raise the level of preparedness, if last year they have become aware of such things, now we are raising it to next level, to the readiness for the real change, the willingness of everyone not just locally, especially at the regional level to be imparted with, then this activity, they can start with it at the young age, right? ”)
