Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA)

In preparation for the feared earthquake expected in the West Valley Fault that runs through many parts of the metro and neighboring provinces, the MMDA staged the Shake Drill and Building Emergency Evacuation Plan (BEEP) in the MaCEA area two times—the first on June 15, the second on June 22.

On both occasions, occupants of buildings in Legazpi Village were directed to stream out of their buildings in an orderly manner and gather at the Legazpi Active Park. The annual exercise is expected to condition the minds of people to the possibility of a major tremor and train them to behave with calmness and reason should it happen.
