In line with this, the Office of Civil Defense rolls out the Bida ang Handa Campaign which generally aims to promote disaster preparedness through public’s participation in the NSED. The main goal of the activity is to gather the maximum number of commitments via social media.

The main activity of the campaign involves the government, non-government, private, academe and media sectors as well as other stakeholders, with the following mechanics:

      1.Take a photo or video, may be solo or in group, showcasing a preparedness activity with the main message: Bida ang Handa”


“Makikiisa kami sa 2nd Quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill sa darating na June 21, alas-dos ng hapon, dahil Bida Ang Handa”

“Meron kaming Family Emergency Survival Kit para kung kailangan lumikas, meron kaming magagamit! At magda-DUCK-COVER-HOLD kami sa June 21! Dahil Bida and handa!”

      1. Post it in your social media accounts using the #BidaAngHanda.
