Casans Carry Out Earthquake Drill For Disaster Preparedness

High School students of Casa del Nino Science High School gather in the quadrangle, the designated Evacuation Area of the schoool in case of a natural disaster during the Earthquake Drill.

Nobody is ever prepared for calamities but it is very important to be ready for when they strike.  This is why Casans are ordered each year to participate in a drill to get them primed for natural disasters such as an earthquake.  Today, the 20th of June 2019, the Casans were practiced on what to do in case a tremor strikes and they quickly gathered in the school quadrangle of the Casa del Nino Science High School campus in Pacita 2, San Pedro, Laguna, as the evacuation area of safety in case of a disaster.

Mr. Ramon C. Belizario of the Casa Emergency Medical Service has always spearheaded this yearly activity in line with the school’s mandate for Disaster Preparedness.  CEMS is a special course in school where students who are planning to study in the medical field are trained on emergency service and first response.

Despite the heat, the students gamely sat it out under the blazing sun and listened to Mr. Belizario make some observations and statements about the practical event.  High School teachers led by OIC/Principal Mr. Herbert San Pedro helped in the supervision of the Earthquake Drill.
