 “If Port au Prince is the most likely comparison to what may happen to Manila, it is notable that six months after the Haitian earthquake, most roads were still impassable or only of limited use. More than a year after the quake, rubble and collapsed buildings continued to dominate the city landscape. The majority of displaced people still lived in tent cities with no prospect for permanent homes with electricity or running water. Donor fatigue set in and estimates are that it will take up to 20 years for Port au Prince to recover.” -page 4

    I note that many notices have been issued about what to do but I have reservations on the planning of locations of all emergency vehicles.
    Nothing has been said about relocating all emergency eqipment and personel to greenfield or open spaces, this needs to be addressed as a large tremor will block all roads with fallen buildings and other debris rendering any attempt at resues useless.
    Empty shipping containers could be used as emergency command posts or treatment units for the injured and accomodation for essential workers +storage of vital supplies that will be needed.

      you are so right. it also reminds me about those shipping container vans that are supposed to carry supplies and rescue equipment for disaster emergencies. yes, the mmda (i believe) has them deployed. BUT OF ALL PLACES TO STRATEGICALLY LOCATE THEM, THEY ARE OFTEN SEEN UNDER THE INTERSECTION FLYOVERS, usually just under the ramp where vehicles go up or touch down to roads. now what if during the big one the flyovers fall on them… NOW WHAT?
