SM City Baguio actively participated in the third quarter Nationwide Simultaneous Earthquake Drill (NSED) on September 7. The actual earthquake drill, participated by shoppers, tenants, and employees, took place during regular mall hours. Evacuation and rescue drill simulations were carried out to increase and strengthen the mall’s Emergency Response Team preparedness and
coordination among tasked units. Working hand in hand, Medical as well as Search & Rescue Team gave first aid treatment to a mock-up trauma victim at SM City Baguio.

Staged at exactly 2pm, the drill demonstrated various crisis scenarios to raise public awareness about the proper emergency response during and after this hazard. Employees and tenants were
evacuated to the open spaces after the simulated earthquake drill. On top of the simultaneous
nationwide earthquake drill, SM City Baguio also conducts an annual refresher course for its employees, tenants, and affiliates on fire and earthquake preparedness. Topics like worst-case scenarios during fire and earthquake, evacuation routes, and first aid treatment were taken up to build contingency plans to meet the realities that an earthquake will present when it strikes.
