Last January 15, 2013, an earthquake drill followed by a fire drill was conducted on the Ateneo de Manila High School campus. It was the second earthquake drill of the school year and the first fire drill in recent memory. Members of the school community hid under their desks in the duck-cover-hold position as the bell rang and the ground-shaking sounds played on the p.a. system. A few minutes later, people moved to their respective safety zones via revised routes that expedited their evacuation.
