Consist of two categories namely Barangay and School, the 14 teams competed in different activities such as information education; bandaging relay; lifting and moving relay and situational analysis. Each group was also rated based on their preparedness capability, knowledge of handling and using disaster equipment and teamwork.
CDRRM Officer Raymond Del Rosario said the annual activity seeks to develop the skills of the participants to help them lead during disaster as well as to raise awareness on the importance of disaster preparedness and resiliency.
"Ang mga kalamidad at sakuna ay walang pinipiling oras at panahon, kaya naman napakahalaga na ang bawat isa sa atin ay may sapat na kaalaman patungkol sa mga tamang gawain sa pagreresponde," Del Rosario said.
In an interview, Mayor Edwin "EdSa" Santiago said that the local government cannot do it all alone. Thus, he is encouraging every Fernandino to be prepared at all times so as to lessen fear, anxiety and the damaging effects of calamities and disasters.
"Dapat lagi tayong handa sa ano mang sakuna na pwedeng tumama sa atin kaya naman aming pinalalakas ang kakayahan ng lahat ng paaralan at barangay dito sa ating syudad dahil sila ang kasangga ng CDRRMO sa pagresponde. Sa mga ganitong pagkakataon kailangan ding manaig ang pagkakaisa," Santiago said.
