BAGUIO CITY: Mayor Mauricio Domogan has activated the city’s Incident Command System for the city’s preparedness and response with the conduct of a citywide earthquake drill dubbed “Baguio Shake Drill” on March 31. The Office of the Civil Defense-CAR and City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council are enjoining all sectors – business establishments, schools and universities, hospitals, barangay officials and residents – to participate in the drill where the scenario will be a 7.2 magnitude Tubao fault earthquake simulation. Based on the PhiVolcs Earthquake Intensity Scale, this magnitude can cause very strong and highly damaging effect in the Baguio–Benguet area.
