Mexico City’s Secretary of Civil Protection, Fausto Lugo, said that the 173rd Passion Play of Iztapalapa has been going smoothly.

In an interview with Capital Media, he said that the only incident happened yesterday evening, when some grass caught fire in Cerro de la Estrella, but that it caused no injuries.

“Fortunately, the event has been going well. The only thing we have to report is the fire in Cerro de la Estrella yesterday. We will keep paying attention, but fortunately we still have no important incidents to report,” he said.

Lugo urged people attending the Passion Play to use sunscreen, wear hats and sunglasses, and to stay hydrated.

“We will keep asking that people come hydrated, that they protect themselves from sunburns, that they wear a hat, because it is going to be a sunny day, and that they come with their families, and set a reunion point in case something happens,” he said.

He said that during the Semana Santa vacations there will be a police operation in the 16 boroughs to protect visitors and residents.

Twenty thousand police, firefighters and emergency health workers were deployed for the 173rd representation of the Passion of the Christ in Iztapalapa. This Good Friday, 1.6 million people are expected to come to Iztapalapa to watch the Passion Play.
