Following the success from last year's ShakeDrill, Marikina participated for the 2nd time in the Metro Manila ShakeDrill, along with other participating cities in Metro Manila. Last June 22, at 9:00am, Marikina prepared to act on an earthquake scenario simulation.
This time, the simulation was a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. SM Marikina participated and reported 531 employees and mall goers were successfully rescued. In addition, the mall area was declared secured within 35 minutes from the start of the simulation exercise.
MMDA Chairman Emerson Carlos said “We hope to institutionalize this exercise so that the public may develop a culture of preparedness.”
