Personnel of the Eastern Police District (EPD) participated in the Fourth Quarter National Simultaneous Earthquake Drill at its headquarters in Barangay Malinao, Pasig City.

Col. Erson Digal, EPD deputy director for administration, spearheaded the conduct of the drill together with Col. Orlando Yebra Jr., EPD deputy director for operation.

Likewise, the police stations of Pasig, Mandaluyong, Marikina and San Juan were also directed to participate in the said activity, which were to be conducted within their respective area of responsibilities.

As mandated by the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, the activity aims to test the efficiency and usefulness of the preparedness, response and recovery plans, systems and policies developed by the Philippine National Police and to evaluate the effectiveness of the contingency plan, and to test the coordination and communication mechanism in emergency and disaster operation.

To ensure maximum safety, elements of the Bureau of Fire Protection and the EPD mobile force battalion rescue team also participated in the activity.

Erson said all EPD personnel successfully performed the five phases of the earthquake drill, from the start of the alarm, response, evacuation, assembly and head count, as well as carrying with them their individual “grab-go” bag.

“We never know when an earthquake will occur. But we should know what to do before, during and after the occurrence of such events. It is important that these safety drills are done regularly to familiarize our police officers with safety and disaster preparedness measures,” Digal added.
