PRO3, READY FOR EARTHQUAKE
CAMP OLIVAS, City of San Fernando, Pampanga- Police Regional Office 3 joins in the conduct of the 2nd Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill held in the afternoon of June 21, 2018.
PCSUPT AMADOR V CORPUS, RD, PRO3 said that the earthquake drill/simulation aims to help prepare PNP personnel and other employees inside the camp for an earthquake.
The important part of the drill is to understand that when there is an earthquake it is safest to drop to the ground, find cover and hold on. The activity started by a one minute blowing of siren, wherein all PNP personnel, teachers, students and other employees inside their respective offices drop on the floor, find cover under their tables and hold on to it. Afterwards, all participants went outside, with both hands covering their heads since they could be battered with falling objects, walked in a single file and proceeded at the designated evacuation area which is the Parade Ground located infront of the Admin Building solemnly. This must be done so as not to cause panic while an earthquake takes place.
The Earthquake drill is an annual exercise designed for the awareness, preparedness and readiness of PRO3 PNP personnel and employees during an actual earthquake.
Meanwhile, in an interview, PSSUPT OSCAR P JACILDO, Chief, Regional Police Community Divisionof PRO3 stated that “We always have to do preparations through protracted drills like this. It is not a matter of lacking, it is keeping in tune, keeping abreast”.
More or less one thousand (1,000) PNP personnel including teachers, students and other employees inside the camp participated in the drill. Also participated during said activity were personnel from the Bureau of Fire Protection.
