The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) will hold an online Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) for the first quarter on March 11, 2021.
The NSED, which will be conducted by the NDRRMC through the Office of Civil Defense, is aimed at instilling preparedness among the public amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The drill will be held on Facebook via live stream at 2 PM.
The OCD will start the NSED with the pressing of a button “to signal the duck, cover, and hold procedure”.
The public is encouraged to watch the live stream and do the duck, cover, and hold in their houses.
