The staff of the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) did the “duck, cover, and hold” in participation with Metro Manila-wide earthquake drill on 14 July 2017 at 4:00 pm.

The Metro Manila-wide shake and drill was spearheaded by the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) requiring the public, including government offices, to participate. The activity was being done in preparation for the “Big One” which according to MMDA, “could leave up to 48,000 deaths in Metro Manila and surrounding cities if people are caught unprepared”. ###

Personnel head their way outside the building as they heard the siren.
