Better be prepared everyday.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will hold a surprise shake drill next week to prepare the public for the “big one.”

MMDA general manager Jojo Garcia said this adding that they have coordinated with telecommunications firms to send text blasts five minutes before the shake drill to avoid panic.

Garcia explained that they decided to conduct a surprise shake drill since some people did not take previous drills seriously.

He said they will no longer stage scenarios during the surprise shake drill but will only test how the public should react during an earthquake.

They will also show the entry and exit points in the metropolis during the drill.
