As part of its ongoing endeavor to increase the awareness of the CSWCD constituents that preparedness is an important component of safety, the DRRM Cluster again coordinated a safety orientation and earthquake drill in the afternoon of July 18, 2012.
Preparatory activities had been carried out by the different DRR committees before the day itself to see to it that everything will go on as planned. The first portion was the conduct of a surprise emergency earthquake drill mobilizing those who were in the college at that time. Then, using the parameters ably explained by a seasoned rescuer, Mr. Aldo R. Mayor who is the Chief of the Public Safety Office of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the body assessed its performance in the drill. After that, Prof. Victor F. Obedicen, the Chair of the DRR Committee, reviewed the CSWCD emergency preparedness system and encouraged the students to join future DRR activities.
Congratulations to the DRR Committee for the very organized and well attended event as well as for mobilizing majority of the College to help in the Committee work. Noteworthy of mention are Zoe Obedicen, Jane Demegillo, Monette Manaay, Fe Ticzon, Tata de la Cruz, Sally Quilicol, and Elmer Ferrer. (by: Leticia Tojos)
