Under the mandate of the Republic Act 10121 or The Philippine Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Act of 2010, preparedness and mitigation are key strategies in reducing disaster risks. The exercise was part of the quarterly NSED.

The activity helped the employees to be very familiar where the escape routes are located within the office premises.

“In doing this quarterly, we can be assured that DILG personnel know what they have to do in the event of disasters and emergencies. Further, we can assess the capacity level of disaster response teams in the office,” RD Alex C. Roldan said.
