Earthquake preparedness in the Philippine context

Before founding Molnix in 2014, I worked as Disaster Management Delegate at the Finnish Red Cross. As part of those duties, I contributed to the creation of an emergency response mechanism called the 10K Camp. The 10K camp is a scalable and rapidly deployable emergency shelter that covers camp materials, staff and services for ten thousand people and beyond. This 10K Camp mechanism is also in used in cooperation with other actors, and one prominent partner is the Philippine Red Cross. In this capacity, I have had the honor of working with the Philippine Red Cross even after starting Molnix, including working on the contingency plan.

I noticed the functionality we needed and the script we were building were a good fit for creating a proper CLI. With many other users in the community having expressed similar needs, I realized this was a good moment to contribute. The tool was merged to ISPConfig yesterday. We are currently asking for feedback on the tool’s current state and inviting more developers to contribute further functions. Read more “ISPConfig shell CLI by Molnix”
