Employees of DENR-CAR participated in the National Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) at 9 AM today. They have exercised the “duck, cover and hold” safety protocol then a few minutes later, all moved to a safer and open ground. The management office observed the quick participation of all employees indicating better awareness and presence of mind in times of calamities.
NSED is conducted four times a year to better prepare and accustom the citizenry before, during, and after an earthquake.
Employees also joined the live webinar of the Office of Civil Defense to be reminded and further educated on disaster preparedness.
