Natural Calamities

Earthquake

Is one disaster which is difficult to predict. It can happen anytime without previous notice or sign. However, precautionary measures can and should be put into effect to prepare and protect students and employees during such disaster.

BEFORE THE EARTHQUAKE:

1. Familiarize yourself with the emergency exits.
2. Familiarize yourself with the locations of fire extinguishers, and communication facilities.
3. Secure heavy furniture or cabinets to prevent sliding or toppling.
4. Store breakable items, harmful chemicals, and flammable materials properly.

DURING THE EARTHQUAKE:

1. Do not panic. Always strive to maintain presence of mind and calmness when an earthquake occurs, whether it is on a minor or major scale.
2. Stay calm where you are. Do not rush out toward an exit; a stampede usually results in injuries and even in death.
3. Protect your body from falling debris by bracing yourself against a doorway or beside a sturdy desk or table.
4. Get away from power lines, walls, and the like.
5. Do not rush to the exit; when the tremors stop, get out calmly and in an orderly manner.
6. Go to an open area. (The fire evacuation areas may be used for this purpose.)
7. Never use the elevator. Stay away from unstable objects or structures, damaged walls, ceiling, etc. Aftershocks may cause damage structures or loosened objects to fall.
8. Don’t believe in wild rumors. Listen to instructions from authorities.

AFTER THE EARTHQUAKE:

1. The General Services, to be assisted by the Security Team, shall immediately conduct a physical inspection of the premises to determine whether the exits or stairways are free from debris and other fallen objects.
2. Maintenance personnel shall turn off power switches in the area. Power must be restored only after it is safe to do so.
3. All students / employees shall stay in their designated areas until further instructions. They must stay away from downed electric lines or objects in contact with live wires. 
4. Check yourself and others for injuries.
5. Be prepared for aftershocks.
6. Gather information from battery-operated radios.
7. Clean-up chemical spills, toxic, and flammable materials (Science Laboratory).
8. Check for fire. If there is any, initiate procedures to extinguish it.
9. Check you water and electrical lines for defect. If any damage is suspected, turn the system off in the main valve.
10. take with you all necessary items for your protection and comfort. (e.g. flashlight, etc.)

Typhoon

Flood

1. The General Services shall see to it that there is sufficient supply of DIESEL for the GENERATOR. The Manual of Operations should always be available for any eventualities.

2. Emergency contact numbers of the Central Safety and Security Committee must be available to the Guard on Duty. 

3. All available communication equipment should be ready with the guard/maintenance on duty in anticipation of possible brown-outs and unavailability of telephone lines.

4. Stay in the building where you are. Keep calm, don’t panic.

5. Keep away from windows or glass walls that may be broken by the typhoon.

6. Secure merchandise and equipment that might be damaged by water.

1. When the weather situation indicates possible heavy rains, the General Services will place sandbags where water is expected to come in. Stocks in the warehouse or bodegas that may be affected by flood should be taken off the floor. Documents and other important materials on the floor should be placed on elevated locations.

2. After the flood, the General Services will clean up and prepare the places for normal operations.
