Recognizing the importance of disaster preparedness, at exactly 9:00 AM today, the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte joined the 2nd Quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) during the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic.
The drill was spearheaded and supervised by the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMC), headed by Ms. Abeliza C. Manzano.
Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, the PGLDN continues to observe the NSED in order to assess, reevaluate, and further improve the capacity in responding to emergencies such as earthquakes, as well as educating the people on what actions to take when an earthquake strikes from the shaking of the ground until it stops, including safety standards during building evacuation.
Employees from the different offices of the Provincial Government observed the DUCK, COVER, and HOLD while still observing safety and health protocols.
Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza Dimaporo is one with the Office of the National Defense and the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (NDRRMC) in promoting disaster preparedness and resilience especially in the midst of the pandemic and congratulated the PDRRMC for the job well done.
