The Department of Agrarian Reform Regional Office I officials and employees have keenly participated in the conduct of the CY 2024 First Quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) held at the Department of Agrarian Reform Regional Office I Building on 25 March 2024.

Before the start of the NSED, ARPO II Aileen O. Turalba discussed pertinent information about the earthquake drill, which includes the dos and don’ts during and after an earthquake occurs.

At exactly 9:00 AM, the drill started, and as the one-minute-long alarm was heard, DARRO1 officials and employees did the “Duck, Cover, and Hold” technique, one safety measure against the dangers brought about by earthquakes. They also hid under sturdy materials such as chairs and tables to further protect themselves.
