On September 28, personnel of the EMB-NCR participated in the 3rd Quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill. Aside from an expression of support to the strengthened Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in the country, the EMB-NCR committed itself in conducting the exercise to review disaster readiness of its personnel based on the DRRM workshop held last year.

It is the goal of the EMB-NCR to increase the awareness of its personnel on the vulnerabilities of Metro Manila to earthquakes; thus, the agency also commits to update the knowledge and readiness of its employees on survival in case an earthquake occurs. Part of the drill was a discussion on what “go bags” should include aside from the usual first aid kits.
