The Tsunami Drill was conducted on 5th November, 2021 to mark the World Tsunami Awareness Day. USP Labasa Campus was joined by the Divisional Planning Officer (North) and staff from his office. NFA had also collaborated with us.
The Staff and Students were evacuated to the Labasa Primary Ground using the pre-planned evacuation route. It was after a year we all had a chance once again to reunite in trekking to our evacuation site.
It was a delightful day after a heavy downpour the previous night and celebrations of Diwali which didn’t dampen the spirit of students and staff. All evacuees walked through the trek in just eight minutes and also made their way back to the campus in a span of fifteen minutes.
The Students and Staff and our present stakeholders did join in for refreshments joyously and reflected on the Drill exercise.
