Abstract: Disaster preparedness is pivotal in a country like the Philippines which has never been exempted from natural and man-made disasters. Hence, there is a need to study community-based disaster preparedness. It turned out in this study, that Catubig, Northern Samar was well prepared on the aspect of community-based disaster preparedness. However, it still had its fair share of challenges, which ranged from communication in disasters needs to disaster literacy, poor mobilization of the civil society toward participation, state of governance, and economic stability. Banking on these challenges, the researchers designed a community-based communication in disasters plan, which highlighted a fair play between objectives, audience, strategy, and tools/activities.
