The University of Santo Tomas-Legazpi effort for disaster management and emergency response or Anduyog Bikol, traced back in the year 1999. When Mayon volcano erupted in July of that year, the university through the Office of the Secretary General and Student Development Services Office initiated the call for disaster response. The administrators, faculty, non-teaching personnel and students joined hands to respond to the call of the situation. The calamity immediately drove the university to relief and fundraising effort. Anduyog Bikol’s disaster management framework emanates from a comprehensive view of disasters as caused by varied natural and human-caused hazards and the holistic, people-centered and sustainable approaches in addressing them.
