RE: NATIONAL DISASTER RISK REDUCTION AND MANAGEMENT COUNCIL (NDRRMC)


The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) through the Office of Civil Defense will be holding the First Quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) on March 12, 2020, Thursday, at 2 p.m. In this connection, this said office has kindly requested the CBCP to help in the information drive by announcing this activity in all churches this coming Sunday, March 8, 2020. This is the announcement that has been prepared which can be read this Sunday:

“Sa darating na ika-labindalawa ng Marso, Huwebes, alas dos nang hapon, inaanyayahan ang lahat na lumahok sa Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill o NSED. Ang NSED, sa pangunguna ng Office of Civil Defense (OCD) – National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) ay isang pagsasanay na ginaganap apat na beses sa isang taon. Layunin nitong pagtibayin ang kaalaman at kahandaan ng bawat Pilipino sa mga isasagawa bago, habang at pagkatapos ng lindol. Katuwang ang simbahan sa paghihikayat sa publiko na makiisa sa gagawing aktibidad. Sa oras ng pagtunog ng sirena na maghuhudyat ng pagsisimula ng aktibidad, mangyaring makilahok at sumunod sa mga panuntunan ng awtoridad sa inyong lugar, paaralan, at mga opisina.”

While we pray that we be spared from all disasters, we also need to be prepared for any calamities that might befall
