SM breaks a new record as 63 SM malls nationwide, together with SM residences and office buildings, participated in the 2017 National Earthquake Drill of the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council on June 29.
This year, SM extended an overwhelming support with approximately 40,000 participants coming from SM employees, tenants, and customers – against 2016’s estimate of 24,000 participants. Select malls and buildings also simulated scenarios of a real earthquake, including injured and trapped employees.
Last May 23 in Cancun, Mexico – SM’s Hans T. Sy represented SM Prime at a gathering of the United Nations International Strategy for Disaster Reduction Private Sector Alliance for Disaster Resilient Societies, or ARISE. ARISE is a group of UN-backed up companies that aims to create risk-resilient societies by rallying the private sectors to collaborate with public sectors and other stakeholders towards global disaster preparedness. Mr. Hans is the only board member of ARISE from the Philippines.
Through demonstrating support for national and global campaigns on disaster preparedness, SM continues to be committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of its customers, tenants, and employees in pursuit of making the mall-going fun and extraordinary for all.
