More than 150 people took part in a fire drill on Thursday morning (16 March) at the new Atarazanas Metro station in Malaga.

Carried out prior to the commissioning of the extension of the underground service to the city centre, the exercise involved managers, security forces, emergency services, health workers and more than 100 volunteers, who played the role of passengers.

The drill was designed to test the reaction to a fire on a train at the station. Managers activated the emergency protocol, which involved closing the station to the public, notifying the emergency services and coordinating the operation.
