Mahinog participates nationwide earthquake drill

Mahinog, Camiguin - To make sure residents remain alert and know what to do in case of an earthquake, a simultaneous drill was conducted here today at Mahinog Public Market, Mahinog Central School and Columbia St. Michael's Parish High School.

This activity was also conducted nationwide by all public and private schools, selected public government buildings and commercial establishments. The drill started at 9 a.m.

Spearheaded by the Municipal Disaster Coordinating Council (MDCC), the drill involved critical emergency response operations in the so-called “Golden Hour," or the critical first 72 hours after a quake.

This includes fire suppression, collapsed structure search and rescue, high angle rescue, and mass casualty incident management and evacuation.


  1. i love the new trumpet layout!
    u've done a great job sir Homer.
    and the earthquake drill is awesome!
    good to see Camiguin is moving forward.
    go Mahinog, go Camiguin!!!!!!!!!!

  2. were hospitals involved on the drill?
    like contingency plan for massive casualties;
    how/where to get additional medical supplies, additional medical personnel;
    patient transport to mainland;
    triage; how do patients pay for it? etc.
    we may be able to rescue victims from rummage, but are the hospitals equipped to handle such casualties?
    they should be able to save lives..
    thank u
