Romania: International Day for Disaster Reduction - Live to tell 2016
This year, on the International Day for Disaster Reduction, the Inspectorate for Emergency Situations Petrodava of Neamt County (Romania) will organise an earthquake exercise, aiming at providing information concerning the actions that should be adopted during an earthquake and immediately after its occurrence. The event will be developed in cooperation with the County School Inspectorate, involving all schools in Neamt County.
For the second year, on the 13th of October, at 09:45 am, all the alarm devices will sound the disaster alarm signal. Over 35,000 pupils will be involved in this activity, which represents an attempt to motivate pupils towards reducing existing disaster risks, according to the priority of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030. During the exercise, an information and training campaign on earthquakes "Don't shake for the quake" will be carried out as well.
After the exercise, participants may fill out the feedback form found here.
