In part of the news, we have been receiving posts, questions and other inquiries on how to survive an earthquake specially in Manila where the Marikina Valley Fault System has not moved since 1658. Noting that, please be also aware that the so called "Triangle of Life" method by Doug Copp has been disproved many times by different experts and international bodies around the world.
Building height and material were factors affecting survival - persons in buildings that were 7 or more floors high were 35 times as likely to be injured. If a sturdy desk or furniture is not found, drop beside an inner wall and cover (Inner wall is less likely to topple than outer wal). In the case of toppling where you pointed out that you can be crushed if you are on the wrong side of a sturdy object when you do TOL, won’t you get crushed all the same when you are holding on to a sturdy table? According to the 2004 Metro Manila Earthquake Impact Reduction Study, the West Valley Fault System is entering its active phases which may result in an earthquake of at least magnitude 7. Since governmental disaster management systems will be insufficient to cope with the disaster, it’s important that each of us take steps now to reduce its impact. The maps below will help you assess how you could be affected should Manila be hit by a large earthquake. has produced an interactive map showing the Valley Fault System together with nearby landmarks.
The widely referenced Metro Manila Earthquake Impact Reduction Study (MMEIRS) maps out risk assessments for both human loss risk and damage to residential buildings. Disaster preparedness for the cities and municipalities of Metro Manila: City of Manila, Caloocan, Las Pinas, Makati, Malabon, Mandaluyong, Marikina, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Paranaque, Pasay, Pasig, Pateros, Quezon City, San Juan, Taguig, Valenzuela.
Prepare yourself, your family and your community for earthquakes, typhoons, floods, natural disasters, epidemics and day-to-day emergencies. Welcome to Rappler, a social news network where stories inspire community engagement and digitally fuelled actions for social change. MANILA, Philippines – With the effects of a powerful quake expected to do widespread damage in Metro Manila, the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) wants a consolidated disaster plan for local government units within the special region. Leaders of the 84 barangays near the two major faults of Greater Metro Manila convened on Thursday, May 28, to discuss safety measures and craft a doable action plan to prepare for a massive disaster. Because of this, cities and municipalities should work together to come up with a consolidated plan, MMDA Chairman Francis Tolentino said.
Barangay officials from Metro Manila, Bulacan, Rizal, Cavite, and Laguna were also given survey forms to assess their preparedness for a possible disaster.

Experts say Metro Manila is already due for the "Big One," a strong earthquake that could strike once the West Valley fault moves. In Metro Manila, the death toll could be around 33,500 with at least 100,000 injured, according to a study. For an example of a model barangay in disaster preparedness, Tolentino cited Barangay Tumana in Marikina City.
After experiencing record flooding when Typhoon Ondoy (international name: Ketsana) hit the Philippines in 2009, Barangay Tumana has developed a warning system and disaster plan to quickly evacuate its 45,000 residents to safety.
Barangay captain Ziffred Ancheta said residents began to take disaster preparations seriously after suffering from Ondoy's floods. Ancheta said there were already visible signs of danger in their community, with several portions of the ground in their barangay showing cracks. Barangay Tumana's earthquake preparations will also make use of the sirens that it currently uses to warn residents during heavy flooding. While cities and municipalities hold regular earthquake drills to prepare residents for disasters, Tolentino said the exercises often aren't taken seriously.
For residents to have a better idea of the effects of a strong quake, the MMDA will be bringing its mobile earthquake simulator to the 84 most vulnerable barangays located near the West Valley Fault starting Friday. The simulator can generate seismic movements of up to intensity 10, mimicking the up-and-down and side-to-side movements of a real quake. For a more realistic simulation, the MMDA chief earlier proposed a metrowide earthquake drill that would involve cutting down power and communication lines, and shutting down schools, malls, and offices.
Tolentino said he will meet with mayors of Metro Manila cities on Tuesday to discuss the proposal. MMDA chairman Francis Tolentino discusses with PAF Major Marson Mendoza the details of Thursday's metrowide earthquake drill. The Manila Police District (MPD) has issued an urgent Traffic Advisory for those traveling in the capital city on Thursday, July 30, when a Metro Manila Earthquake Drill is scheduled. If you wish to donate to the victims, the Philippine National Red Cross is accepting donations.
A 2009 study reported that the MMDA predicts a 35,000 casualty rate when a magnitude 7 hits Manila. If we look at cases and controls used to measure statistics in the Baguio 1990 quake, we are faced with some grim numbers.

Persons in the middle sections or floors of those buildings were 2 times likely to be injured as those on upper or lower floors.
Of the all the cities in Metro Manila, seven are highlighted as being most at risk of heavy damage and casualties in the event of a massive earthquake. If you live or work in an area highlighted as having a higher risk, it would be wise to take extra precautions. Hovering your mouse over the red fault line will highlight the landmarks within two kilometers of the fault. Create your own emergency preparedness site and be part of the Prepare Philippines network. MMDA's mobile earthquake simulator will make the rounds of vulnerable barangays near the fault lines. The forms asked if the villages had their own disaster and evacuation plans, basic disaster tools and equipment, relief goods, early warning systems, and funds for calamities. They also know that when an earthquake strikes, they should go to open spaces," Ancheta said. Persons staying in buildings of mixed material (glass and cement) were 3 times as likely to be injured than those in wooden structures. A loose network of independent sites is more robust than having everything centrally coordinated. Prepare Manila is not affiliated with any governmental agencies or non-governmental organisations. The most common causes of which were being hit by falling objects (37%), being crushed or pinned by heavy objects (29%), and falling (7%).
