Malacañan Palace
March 9, 2023

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. joined the entire nation in the face-to-face conduct of the Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) at the Malacañan Palace grounds.

The simultaneous drill came after the announcement from the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) through the Office of the Civil Defense (OCD), asking the public to join the first quarter NSED at 2:00 PM.

The quarterly conduct of the nationwide earthquake drills each year is an effort of the government to promote disaster preparedness and resilience among Filipinos.
