As Republic Act 10121 prescribes, all government offices are mandated to conduct a quarterly earthquake drill and exercise. Hence, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau Regional Office No. X executed the required activities for its 2nd Quarter earthquake drill and exercise last August 8, 2019.

With the primary aim of preparing for the occurrence of an earthquake, the drill provides a timely exercise and for each personnel to be acquainted on appropriate response when an actual earthquake will occur.




As the alarm rang, all personnel executed the “duck, cover, and hold” position. And as the shrill went off, all personnel then proceeded to the designated evacuation area. The drill coordinator made sure that all personnel were all accounted for and that nobody were trapped or have been left behind.
