The officials and employees of the DENR-12 regional and field offices performed the Duck, Cover, And Hold technique and evacuated the buildings during the fourth quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) on Thursday morning, November 9.
Atty. Felix S. Alicer, regional executive director of the DENR-12, emphasized the importance of readiness to lessen the damages that might confront everyone during the occurrence of earthquake and other disasters.
“We are not alone in this exercise and we are doing this together with the rest of the nation for us to be prepared in case of any calamity especially earthquake. What is important is the presence of mind and we should not panic and always be on top of the situation,” he said. ### (With report and photos from DENR-12 regional and field offices) | 𝐑𝐒𝐂𝐈𝐆𝐌
