Walang makakapigil: NDRMMC to hold earthquake drill on June 21 even if it rains

0 593

There is no stopping the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) to hold the 2nd Quarter National Simultaneous Earthquake Drill on Thursday, June 21.

NDRRMC spokesperson Director Edgar Posadas said the drill will push through “rain or shine.”

Posadas explained that drills being done while raining may in fact be more realistic since no one can predict when earthquakes may strike.

The second quarter earthquake drill will be held in Barangay Sta. Ana in San Mateo, Rizal at 2 p.m. on June 21.

The first quarter drill was done last Feb. 15.
