St. Dominic College of Asia’s students and employees participated in the Q3 National Earthquake Drill last September 8, 2022.

The Dominican community, from basic education, higher education, staff, and administrators, together with St. Dominic Medical Center, participated in the quarter 3 National Earthquake Drill in cooperation with Bacoor Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Office (BDRRMO), Wilderness Search and Rescue (Cavite Chapter), and Baranggay personnel of Talaba IV.

The Dominican community was taught disaster preparedness during earthquake, as well as what to do before, during, and after it occurs. The drill took place at the SDCA grounds and along Bacoor Boulevard sidewalk. The participants were grouped accordingly following the health protocols such as physical distancing, wearing of facemasks and minimize talking to avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

After the drill, a meeting took place to evaluate the activity held at the HEd AVR facilitated by BDRRMO Prof. Jonathan Velustria Sta Ana, DASS Director.

With the help from all of the participants of St. Dominic College of Asia, the Local Government Unit, and Wilderness Search and Rescue, the 3rd quarter national earthquake drill was successful.
