Angeles mayor orders safety drills in all schools
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin, Jr. has ordered the conduct of drills in all elementary, high school, colleges, and universities in August to ensure the students’ safety against crimes and emergencies.
“Our schools’ vicinity should be a safe space for our children,” the mayor said.
On July 26, Lazatin’s Chief Adviser IC Calaguas presided over a meeting with the Angeles City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office led by Rodolfo Simeon; City Social Welfare and Development Office headed by Edna Duaso; and the Angeles City Police Office led by Colonel Diosdado Fabian.
It was agreed that the city will hold the simulation exercise on the actual shooting scenario and kidnapping situation on August 3.
“Nais po ni Mayor Lazatin na handa tayo sa mga ganitong pagkakataon upang masiguro ang kaligtasan ng mga mag-aaral natin sa paaralan,” Calaguas said.
The CSWDO was also tasked by Lazatin to hold a stress debriefing after the drills to prevent possible trauma on children.
Further, the disaster personnel, law enforcers, and social workers will also receive much additional training to equip them with necessary skills and needed logistics.
Lazatin earlier announced his crime prevention program during his inaugural speech for his second term in office.
