Pasig City Will Be Holding an Earthquake Drill on July 16
There's no such thing as being too prepared.
(SPOT.ph) When it comes to earthquakes, it's always best to be prepared and have a plan of action in mind. This is something Pasig City has taken to heart, as the Pasig City Command Center announced that the city will be holding its annual simultaneous citywide earthquake drill on July 16, at 3 p.m. All public and private establishments are encouraged to "duck, cover, hold" and participate in the drill activities.
Now on its 10th year, the Pasig City Command Center (C3) says it is holding the annual drill in order to raise awareness on how to act in the event of an earthquake, and to develop a culture of readiness and safety. Simulation exercises will also be held in the Capitol Commons area. There is also a scheduled terrorism drill at Unimart, Capitol Commons by 12 p.m.
According to the Pasig C3, motorists should expect heavy traffic all over the city on the afternoon of the earthquake drill. No road closures have been announced.
