This drill will be carried out under the assumption of a magnitude 8.1 earthquake at 300 km.
This 2021 National Drill is the first to be held in the midst of the pandemic, so people must follow hygiene measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19 such as the use of face masks, healthy distance and hand washing when returning to the inside.
Two demonstration scenarios will be carried out with 152 elements of different emergency services: one will be on Avenida Avenida Juárez 60, where the partial collapse and fire will be staged in a room, and another will be in the Zócalo of CDMX, with extraction work of victims in collapsed structures.
