DILG Pampanga personnel set aside whatever they were doing and proceeded to duck, cover and hold to simulate preparedness and response during an earthquake as part of the First Quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill.
The simulation exercise is a regular activity of the Provincial Office in support of the national advocacy to enhance community preparedness against earthquake and other disasters. It also reinforces the need to build resilience, increase public awareness and reduce the impact of disasters including injuries and casualties through proper preparatory actions and emergency response plans.
During the debriefing, the importance of presence of mind was reiterated as well as knowing what to do and where to go in case of an earthquake as this could save lives of people.
