Ateneo de Manila University participates in the Metrowide Shake Drill
Ateneo de Manila University participated in the MMDA’s Metrowide Shake Drill from 10:30 to 11:30 AM on July 30, 2015. Special evacuation procedures were executed by the students and staff after the traditionally recommended “Duck, Cover and Hold.”
The Metrowide shake drill is a metro-wide Earthquake Drill being held by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) with multi-sector cooperation from schools, business, government agencies, and religious organizations. This will supposedly increase the metro’s chances of better recovery and implementation of contingencies in the event of earthquakes.
