UB conducts earthquake drill

In observance of National Disaster Consciousness Month, the University of Bohol (UB) through its Safety and Security Department recently conducted an earthquake drill involving employees, students, and other stakeholders last July 29, 2019.

The drill which was coordinated with the City Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Office and Bureau of Fire Protection saw the evacuation of all students and personnel from the campus premises through designated exit gates after the sounding of alarms. Trained first responders then quickly rescued any victims trapped inside the various rooms and buildings of the university.

The conduct of the earthquake drill is part of the university's measures to enhance the readiness and response capabilities of all UB stakeholders in case of disasters such as earthquakes. Aside from the said drill, the school also conducts a fire drill periodically.
