The MMDA and Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) are conducting inspections and putting markers to areas that stand upon the Valley Fault System based on the Atlas. MMDA Chair Francis Tolentino also announced that the MMDA will use the  “Mobile Earthquake Simulator” starting June 5 to demonstrate what could possibly happen in the event of a major tremor. He dubbed this “Walk the Fault” which is meant to keep the public informed and well prepared when an earthquake strikes.
