PHIVOLCS SUPPORTS NSED AND MM SHAKE DRILL PDF Print

Stakeholder's Notice

As the agency mandated to monitor and study earthquakes, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS) encourages everyone to participate in the 2nd quarter National Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) and the 2nd annual Metro Manila Shake Drill on June 22 at 9 in the morning. PHIVOLCS pushes for the continued promotion of Earthquake awareness and preparedness since it introduced the conduct of earthquake drills in schools way back 2002.


In Quezon City Main Office, PHIVOLCS will participate in the Earthquake Drill to show its support to the Pagyanig 2016 and MM Shake Drill, and to encourage everyone not only to join the drill but also to increase their knowledge about Earthquakes, their hazards and how to prepare for them.

The Earthquake Drill will simulate a Magnitude 7.2 earthquake from the West Valley Fault. At 9:00 AM, radio stations will be sounding the earthquake alert which will signal the start of the drill. Participants would do the duck, cover, and hold technique and will evacuate to the designated evacuation areas. Possible earthquake scenarios will be staged to show and test the disaster response plan such as the National Disaster Response Plan and the Oplan Metro Yakal Plus.‪ #‎Pagyanig‬ ‪#‎MMShakeDrill
