In response to the impending hazards and the threats of the so called 7.2 magnitude earthquake or also known as "The Big One", The QCDPRM (Quiapo Church Disaster Preparedness and Response Ministry) with its goal to impart knowledge and to empower and prepare people about hazards and disasters that are part of our daily lives. In line with this, the ministry gave seminars to the staff and security team of the Minor Basilica of the Black Nazarene.


The following are the seminars given; Disaster Management, Search and Rescue and Retrieval, Medical Response, Management of the Dead and the Missing, and Psycho-Spiritual Integration. The seminars were given to selected staff per department to prepare and equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills in responding to the needs of the survivors of disasters, most especially during earthquakes.

The said project was done during the month of July, in celebration of the National Disaster Consciousness Month. It is the goal of the said activity to develop and hone the skills of the people also to make them agents of selfless service in response to our brothers and sisters affected by disasters.

Indeed the trainings reaped good results during the Earthquake Drill last July 30, 2015, but in the end, after the long strenuous planning and trainings, it is still best that we should learn how to pause for  while, lift our heads to heavens and pray to the one who created us, because for without HIM, our preparation will all be useless.
