The Philippine Public Safety College (PPSC) of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is opening Master in Crisis and Disaster Risk Management (MCDRM) this June 2016. The MCDRM is a one year scholarship program for highly qualified uniformed personnel in the interior government, and employees in government and private sectors preferably practitioners in crisis and disaster risk management of the local government units. The offering of the MCDRM is well-timed to sustain the momentum in building a critical mass of leaders, scholars, practitioners and skilled manpower who will head-up the nation in time of crises and disasters. Its mandate emanates from Republic Act No. 10121, otherwise known as the "Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010" by positioning the DILG at the forefront of Disaster Preparedness and Response.

        The PPSC Board of Trustees through its Board Resolution No. 04, Series of 2016 made the MCDRM as its specialized program in the professional training and education of uniformed personnel in the Philippine National Police (PNP), the Bureau of Fire Protection (BFP), and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology (BJMP); as well as selected fellows from other government institutions, academes, non-government organizations and civil societies.
