Villasis took part on the first quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) on Friday, March 31, 2017 at 2 in the afternoon. The drill was conducted at the open grounds of Villasis Town Hall. The Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (PDRRMC), Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MDRRMC), Police Officers and Bureau of Fire Protection Officers were assigned on observing and assisting the drill.

The NSED was said to be a nationwide training to prepare citizens for the “Big One” since earthquakes and other natural disasters are very evident for the past years. Earthquakes are unpredictable, we may not avoid this natural disaster but through proper knowledge and training we could reduce the risks and minimize its disastrous outcome.  

This is the first time LGU Villasis participates on the said activity but the PDRRMC gave a rating of 95% out of 100 based on everyone’s performance and participation. Meanwhile, Villasinians should prepare for the second quarter earthquake drill.
