The Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) is affiliating with PIRA, Inc. in promoting Earthquake Preparedness among companies in Metro Manila. This is to mitigate the possible catastrophe that much-feared shaking of the West Valley Fault System may cause.
PIRA conducted a Seminar on Earthquake Preparedness entitled "GETTING READY FOR THE BIG ONE" last 16 July 2015 from 8:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. at the Insurance Institute for Asia and the Pacific. Guest Speakers were Col. Geruncio "Gerry" Ilagan, Head of MMDA Volunteer Corps - overall in-charge of Shake Drill 2015 and Mr. Aritheo "Aris" Lacuna, International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) / Red Cross Program, to share some insights on what will be the best way we can do during earthquake.Hits: 2096
