One of my major subjects this semester is SPCM 112 or Crisis Communication. As what the course description says, we study crisis management through communication. We are expected to understand the nature and scope of crisis communication including the possible applications of various models and theories in crisis management. Pretty tough course, eh? I even thought this subject is a crisis in itself. It's giving me head ache. Kidding aside, I've learned to appreciate it because of what we experienced yesterday.
Our teacher tasked our class to break into two groups (we're only 12 in class) and write a paper regarding the flash flood in Davao City last June 28, 2011 that took 31 lives and ruined properties. We need to observe how Davao City reacted to that disaster by tracing the pre-crisis, crisis and post-crisis activities of the incident done by different sectors, especially the government. We are going to present the results of our investigation to a panel of specialists. Geez, my last semester here in UP Min will be this hard. I still have thesis too!
We took some shots in their office, but we have agreed to their rule that we will never post them in any networking sites. They are going to block our accounts if we do so. Anyway, I want to thank them once again for being so nice to us. I salute their job well done. More power to PSCC!
