April 2016 - The Philippine Textile Research Institute (PTRI) conducted the Earthquake Drill for PTRI employees and officials unannounced, from the DOST Main Office. As part of the simultaneous Earthquake Drill in the National Capital Region (NCR), the Drill was led by PTRI - FAD Chief, Ms. Cora L. Tapulgo.
Employees and officers lined up at the PTRI parking lot as the bell alerted the whole PTRI building. Surprised employees and officials dropped, covered and held on to their tables then gathered outside their offices and marched down to the Institute's parking lot.
"Drop. Cover. Hold!
Don't panic, PTRI!”
