On Tuesday, 9 June 2015, Casans were trained on how to react during an earthquake via a drill that was led by Mr. Ramon C. Belizario at the CDNSHS Pacita 2 Campus, San Pedro, Laguna. Students and teachers alike were instructed in their respective classrooms before the alarm was sounded to signal the beginning of the drill.
As expected, the first try was haphazard as the students did not take the practice seriously. The second one was much more organized and done in just under three minutes from the moment they left their respective rooms until they were all formed in the quadrangle which is the designated area for the Casans to gather.
Mr. Belizario announced that this year, the evacuation drill will be done quarterly. “The next exercises will be unannounced to practice their preparedness for impending disasters,” he stressed.
The drill is one of the ways in which CDN trains the students to be Scientific-Minded and to face whatever comes in the future.
