The Traslacion or the Feast of the Black Nazarene every January 9 is considered a High Density Population Gathering. With this, Quiapo Church is faced with the challenge to heighten its vigilance in ensuring that disaster risks or incidents are prevented or minimized and it is prepared to address the needs of affected population. This challenge was addressed through the implementation of the Incident Command System.

Incident Command System (ICS) is a standardized, on-scene, all-hazard incident management concept; allows its users to adopt an integrated organizational structure to match the complexities and demands of single or multiple incidents without being hindered by jurisdictional boundaries. ICS is non-permanent organization and is activated only in response to disasters or emergencies. (NDRRMC)

Quiapo Church Disaster Preparedness and Response Ministry is the department spearheading the ICS. Condoza Solutions Software has offered an incident command program, the PSSHED (Protective Services, Safety, Health, Environment and Disaster) and Incident Mapping which is being used in Command Center during Traslacion and Election. The Command Center can be activated at any given time with the installed program and support and assistance from Digital Information Systems and Technologies (DISAT) and Quiapo Church IT Department. During Command Center operation, other agencies and medical teams or organizations also assist and support the ICS Team of Quiapo Church.

Regular Command Center Operations:

  • January 1- Thanksgiving Procession
  • January 6- Replica Procession
  • January 8 & 9- Traslacion/Feast of the Black Nazarene
  • Grand Stations of the Cross every Lent
  • Good Friday Procession
  • Local and National Elections
