GenSan LGU joins nationwide earthquake drill

City government officials and employees of General Santos joined the National Simultaneous Earthquake Drill on Monday.

Facilitated by the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, city workers simultaneously did the “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” emergency exercise.

City Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao meanwhile encouraged the public to familiarize themselves with emergency response activities to lessen the effects and avoid casualties in case of natural emergency and disasters.

“Mahalaga na seryosohin natin itong mga pagsasanay dahil makakatulong ito para manatili tayong ligtas sa anumang sakuna,” Pacquiao said.

The conduct of quarterly drills is one of the government’s efforts to promote disaster preparedness and resilience among communities.
