This is to notify all officials of Ministry of Health that a “QUAKE ALARM” has been installed on a pillar at the balcony of second floor of Ministry of Health Building.

The device would make a beeping sound when the tremor of an earthquake is felt on the building. The volume of the sound would vary with the intensity of shaking.

All are expected to evacuate to a safer area when you hear the alarm sound.

This is being installed as part of EMSD, DMS initiative to strengthen emergency preparedness and response in the health ministry.

This is issued for the kind information of all.
