The  Olongapo City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (DRRMO), Philippine National Red Cross-Olongapo Chapter and the Olongapo City Police Office recently conducted earthquake drills with the participation of city government offices, private sector entities, hospitals and schools.

It can be recalled that in line with disaster preparedness,  the  Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) in cooperation with the DRRMO also installed a “Strong Motion Accelerograph,”  a type of seismograph that can monitor and record even the slightest tremor or earth movement in the city. Moreover, with this year’s Fire Prevention Month theme, “Makiisa, Makiaalam, at Makipagtulungan Upang Sunog ay Maiwasan,” the DRRMO  and the Bureau of Fire Protection are also doing an intensive information dissemination campaign in the city regarding fire prevention and disaster preparedness. Do not panic, the public was told yesterday as the biggest earthquake drill in the country unfolds today to test the disaster preparedness measures of local government units and the government’s intensified information and education campaign (IEC). The Department of Science and Technology (DOST) made this statement a day before the public and private sector give way to the drill which the Philippine Institute for Volcanoloy and Seismology (DOST-Phivolcs) wants to be as real as possible. Once you know what to do and what not to do in case of an earthquake, one feels more at ease and prepared to face the danger, Montejo said.
Solidum said the role of the local government units (LGUs) is to make residents aware of the need to be prepared for an earthquake. He disclosed that the Phivolcs is also getting prepared by enhancing its earthquake monitoring and information dissemination.

Today, it is important to keep ourselves hydrated because according to PAGASA, Metro Manila’s forecast heat index may reach up to 40.6 degree Celsius.
