DPSC conducts Disaster Preparedness Seminar


You are warned. Be prepared!

As a sign of support to the national disaster consciousness month campaign of the National Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, Daop-Palad Student Council (DPSC) conducted a seminar on disaster preparedness at St. Bridget College, College Department, Multi-Purpose Hall, July 22.

With the theme “Kahandaan at Pagtugon sa Sakuna, Tungkulin ng Bawat Isa,” Mr. Rodrigo Dela Roca, RSW, Head of City Risk Reduction Management Office, guest speaker, stressed the importance of being prepared during disaster.

“We are members of our own family. As the smallest unit in the society, every family should be responsible in ensuring that all members are safe. Because when every family is prepared, the risk of losing too many lives would be lessened,” said Mr. Dela Roca.

According to him, disasters and calamities are still major problems in acquiring a safe and resilient community in our country because we are experiencing several natural and man-made environmental disturbances.

Moreover, he enumerated the safety measures to be done before, during and after if the disaster occurs. He also elaborated the disasters  and calamities which usually hit our country explained the do’s and don’ts towards the occurence of those disasters and calamities.

“Our lives are still at risk. However, being alert and prepared are just some of the many simple ways on how we can prevent numerous loss and great damages. Always remember, our safety lies on our own hands. So now that you are warned, you should be prepared and save your life,”  he concluded.

The seminar ended with an open forum.

John Rey Banlasan, BSED2, served as the master of the ceremony.

Aspiring to strengthen spiritual learning and deepen awareness on vacation, Bridgetines joined the fun run for vocation spearheaded by Lipa Archdiocesan Commission on Vaocation (LACOV), held at Batangas Provincial Community Park to Most Holy Trinity Parish, Batangas City, July 30.

The marathon started at around five in the morning and was followed by the awarding ceremony.

“Vocation is one of the most important words that we must understand. If you know that you have the call, then do not be afraid. It is the blessing that must not be taken for granted. Embrace it. Feel it. Pursue it. That call came from God, so grab it. That would lead to the fulfillment of your life,” affirmed Msgr. Rafael Oriondo, Parish Priest of the Most Holy Trinity, in his homily.

The celebration of the Most Holy Eucharist ended the event.

Daop-Palad Student Council (DPSC) officers and the major and minor club presidents represented the college department in the activity.
