Nationwide earthquake drill set on April 21

            After the recent major earthquakes, the Office of Civil Defense (OCD) set an earthquake drill this coming Thursday, April 21.
            According to OCD Spokesperson Romina Marasigan, everyone should be reminded to be prepared all the time after major quakes that rocked Japan, Ecuador and Myanmar.
            “We’ve seen the devastation of these earthquakes. It’s high time we prepared. We enjoin everybody to participate in the earthquake drills on April 21.”
            Everybody are welcome to participate, especially for those who are near on the West Valley Fault that runs through the city of Marikina, Pasig and Muntinlupa.
            This will be the first earthquake drill for the quarter year of 2016 to be operated by OCD and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC).
            The drill will be held all over the country at exactly 8:30 in the morning.
