Natural disasters vary in impact and severity, but resilient communities can mitigate their impact. In the Philippines, RA 10121 established Barangay Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Committee (BDRRMC), but its full potential has yet to be realized. The study is divided into two phases to determine the BDRRMC's capability in high-risk barangays in Baguio City, Philippines. The first quantitative phase-descriptive design uses a reliability-and-validity-tested questionnaire administered to 145 respondents that was chosen via total enumeration. According to a single-factor ANOVA, the BDRRMC has an overall weighted mean capability of 3.25, which means a very high capability in disaster management. Moreover, under the communication construct, the p-value for a length of service was 0.05, and the p-value for age was 0.03, indicating a statistically significant difference that suggests these variables affect DRRM capability. Because of this, a qualitative phase-case study was followed up to explain the quantitative result.Further, splitting the 12 participants chosen through homogeneous sampling into two groups based on the low and high weighted mean. Using a theme-by-theme joint display to integrate the data, with themes from group 1 promoting encourage awareness, prioritization, and increased coordination, while themes from Group 2 include compliance issues , budget issues and constituent support. The findings result in expansion as fit of integration because of the identified challenges in local disaster management. Therefore, DRRM officers are competent, but a lack of funding and support from constituents limits their effectiveness during disaster operations, resulting in a reactive rather than proactive approach.
