10 Jul Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill
By: Ms. Aurea M. Villareal
Immaculate Conception Academy participated in the Second Quarterly Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill held last June 21, 2018, Thursday, at 9:00 AM. This is in connection with NDRRMC (National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council) Memorandum No. 31, s 2018.
During the drill, students, faculty and staff exhibited their preparedness in responding to an earthquake situation. With their Grab and Go Bags, the students followed their designated routes and proceeded to their evacuation sites while the faculty and staff monitored the execution of emergency procedures. Officers of the Parent Auxiliary were also invited to observe the said exercise.
With evacuation drills such as this, the school hopes to instill to the whole community the value of alertness and cooperation most especially in crucial and unexpected circumstances.
