Don Bosco Tarlac recently conducted a school-wide fire and earthquake drill last March 22, 2023, to prepare its Educative Pastoral Community for possible disasters and calamities. The activity was organized by the School Incident Command Group, under the leadership of Br. Lito Dela Cruz, SDB.

The drill was observed and evaluated by the City Fire Department and the representatives of Santo Cristo Barangay Emergency Response Team. The drill aimed to educate and prepare students, faculty, and staff on the proper response during emergency situations such as fires and earthquakes.

During the drill, the School Incident Command Group provided instructions on what to do in case of a fire or earthquake. The students, faculty, and staff followed the protocols, which included evacuating the building, taking the designated routes to the safe zones, and conducting headcount upon reaching the safe zones.

The drill highlighted the importance of drills and the role they play in being prepared for the real thing. Drills are essential to ensure everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency. It also helps to identify areas of improvement in the school’s emergency preparedness plan.

Moreover, the drill provides an opportunity to test the response time of the school’s emergency personnel, evaluate the effectiveness of the communication systems, and identify areas of weakness that need improvement.

Preparing for emergencies is not just the school’s responsibility but also the community’s. The drill serves as a reminder to parents and guardians to have an emergency plan in place at home and to educate their children on what to do in case of an emergency.

In conclusion, the school-wide fire and earthquake drill conducted by Don Bosco Tarlac highlights the importance of drills and the role they play in being prepared for the real thing.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – these three 'R' words are an important part of sustainable living, as they help to cut down on the amount of waste we have to throw away.

Using the 3 'R's also helps to minimize the amount of space needed for landfill sites, where waste materials are disposed of.

CLAYGO or “Clean as you go” is a practice commonly observed in some fast food chains and other public places to minimize risks to hygiene, health, and safety. This method encourages all of us to make cleaning a part of our daily routine. From the surfaces, tables and/or other equipment, we need to ensure that these are clean, hygienic, and clutter-free.

More than being obsessed with cleanliness, this practice is our little way of showing how we care for our environment. Instead of relying entirely on maintenance personnel, we should at least make an effort on cleaning up our own mess.

The school has partnered with We Gen and invested in renewable energy using 2 solar systems harnessing the power coming from the sun for its day-to-day operations. As of press time, we can say that 46.5% of the school's energy needs is coming from clean energy.

"The  pandemic gave us more reasons to push for renewable energy. This is our support for the Laudatoi Si' and the Don Bosco Green alliance project."
