The Office of Civil Defense (OCD) Region IV-A through the Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council spearheaded the observance of World Tsunami Awareness Day and nationwide simultaneous earthquake drill for the fourth quarter this year on Monday in Barangay Malabrigo here.

The tsunami and earthquake drills were participated in by some 400 community residents, students and teachers of Malabrigo National High School which was designated as the evacuation center in the said barangay.

OCD training officer Kelvin John Reyes said they are conducting community mobilization to inform residents in coastal and non-coastal barangays about what to do, where to go and whom to ask assistance from in case of an earthquake and/or tsunami and to establish a community- based early warning system.
