On July 02, 2014, local government units in Nueva Ecija unite to observe National Disaster Consciousness Month with the theme “Kahandaan at Kaligtasan ng Pamayanan, Pundasyon ng Kaunlaran” through the conduct of simultaneous earthquake drill. More than just compliance, LGUs willingly obeyed because they are aware that no one really knows when, where and what kind of disaster will happen. It chooses no one to spare so it is best to be prepared at all times.

   Various LGUs, together with PNP, BFP, DILG and other concerned agencies, held programs followed by the simulation of an earthquake. Participants (either office employees or students and teachers) were taught what to do and how to react during such incident. Other LGUs also conducted fire drill.

   In line with the celebration of the National Disaster Consciousness Month, LGUs, for the whole month of July, will be conducting series of Information and Education Campaign on disaster preparedness in schools and barangays in the entire province.
