TARLAC CITY, Tarlac (July 31, 2023) — SM City Tarlac in partnership with the Bureau of Fire Protection conducted the 2nd SM and BFP Nationwide Simultaneous Fire Drill today with the participation of mall employees, agency personnel, and tenants.
The activity led by SM Supermalls aims to test the response capability of the mall’s Fire Brigade Team. The simulated fire drill was held in all SM Malls nationwide.
With their Fire Brigade team members, SM City Tarlac demonstrated their mastery of evacuation drills and showed their fire-fighting skills with the use of fire extinguishers and fire hoses.
The partnership of BFP and SM Supermalls is one of the ways in which SM amplifies its commitment to contribute to the creation of risk-resilient societies and promote a global and national culture of disaster risk reduction and resiliency. The public-private partnership (PPP) of SM and BFP gives priority to the constant training of SM’s personnel to respond to disasters, including earthquakes and destructive fires. This will help ensure the safety of SM’s stakeholders, including customers, tenants, employees, nearby communities, and the general public.
