The city government of Davao has reminded its residents of the holding of the second city-wide Shake Out Earthquake and Tsunami Drill later this week.

The Davao City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (CDRRMC) said the drill will take place on July 27, Friday, at 9:00 am.

Lyndon Ancajas, administrative officer of the Davao City Risk Reduction Management Office (DCRRMO), earlier said the purpose of the drill was to develop disaster resilience in the communities.

“It is very important that they know how to prepare during and after an earthquake,” he said.

Both from the public and private sectors are expected to participate in the event.
