NATIONAL DISASTER CONSCIOUSNESS MONTH
On 27 July 2016, in participation to National Disaster Consciousness Month, personnel of this station together with MDRRMC Dilasag conducted Earthquake and Fire Drill at Dilasag National high School.
The activity was a simulation of what students and teachers alike would do during an earthquake and in an event of fire. Participants performed the proper procedure on the said calamities to prevent injuries during a catastrophe. Personnel of this station also demonstrated Bucket Relay and Fire Fighting Operation utilizing Fire Engine to the students assigned for fire suppression. This serve as a preparation on how to respond to a fire incident and how to sustain the spread of fire.
At the end of activity, evaluations were conducted by the MDRRMC and this office. One of the main observations is that students never seem to take the activity seriously; some of them are laughing and horse playing during the activity. Another noted malpractice during the activity is that once the students started to evacuate to open ground/ field they started to run like madmen, the practice if done in an actual disaster could cause more harm than good. Although a simultaneous Earthquake and Fire Drill is mandated to execute quarterly many students seemed to forgotten it.
Said activities ended with positive result.
