As part of precautionary and emergency measure to ensure safety of clients, mall tenants and employees, SM City Marilao recently conducted its mall based earthquake and fire drill.
The emergency preparedness exercise provided opportunity for the participants to put into practice the things they have learned and work together in case of fire and earthquake. Simulations of earthquake and fire incidents were executed to illustrate the proper response before, during and after these hazards happen. This action sought to enhance skills in mobilization, communication and response, as well as the ability to account for all the people within the affected premises.
Likewise, the drill served as a refresher course for the emergency response team (ERT). Topics like prevention, nature of earthquake and fire disasters, emergency and first aid treatment were also discussed in an earlier seminar.
The earthquake and fire drill was a part of the simultaneous program observed by different government agencies in Bulacan. It is also a national activity in which all provinces, cities and towns are encouraged to participate to convey the importance of being alert in case tragedy happens.
