Cebu Business Park, IT Park to hold emergency drill today

Tuesday, September 27, 2016

The readiness to respond during emergency situations will be put to the test as premier estates Cebu Business Park and Cebu IT Park are set to conduct the annual Parkwide Emergency Evacuation Drill today. 

The annual park-wide drill is an earthquake drill that practices locators and building occupants in the estates on how to protect themselves during an earthquake. This includes the drop/duck, cover and hold SOP during the shaking and other emergency procedures.

The drill will also test the readiness of emergency brigades or quick response teams of the buildings and estates in responding to mass evacuation of all building occupants, and possible incidents that may arise from the earthquake such as mass commotion, fire, property damage, etc.

Evacuation areas

Cebu Business Park will commence its drill by 8 a.m. while Cebu IT Park will start by 2 p.m. Assigned evacuation areas will include vacant lots, open spaces and parks nearest to each building.

The activity will also test the coordination of the estate management team with the buildings including LGUs/NGOs on how to properly respond, control and manage such incidents.

To give way to building occupants evacuating the area, some roads in both estates will be closed to traffic today.

For Cebu Business Park, north-bound lane of Cardinal Rosales Ave. from PhilAm Life Center to Globe Tower will be closed from 6:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Vehicles bound for Juan Luna Ave. will take the Samar Loop. 

For Cebu I.T. Park, the road along Avida Showroom and the road along The Walk, Calyx and Central Bloc will be closed from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. 

Cebu Business Park and Cebu IT Park are two of the city’s premier estates owned by Cebu Holdings, Inc. and Cebu Property Ventures Development Corp., respectively. (SUN STAR CEBU)
