TABUK CITY, Kalinga – The construction of the two-story evacuation center located at the Capitol compound here is nearing completion.

As of April 30, the Department of Public Works and Highways regional office reported that the construction of the evacuation center is 98 percent complete.

Phase 1 of the project costs P22.8 million and phase 2 costs P11.3M.

The center includes a prayer room, kitchen, storage area, and nursery.

Water reservoir, alternate generator, garbage disposal space are also provided   for the safety and convenience of evacuees.

Emergency evacuation centers have already been completed and turned over in Baguio City, Apayao, Abra, and Benguet.

The building of evacuation centers is a priority project of the Duterte administration geared towards saving lives and providing residents of the province and those from nearby towns a temporary shelter equipped with essential facilities in times of disasters.

Last year, President Rodrigo Duterte said he wanted the government to start building permanent evacuation centers in strategic areas in the provinces.

He said that public schools cannot be always used as evacuation centers during disasters in order not to disrupt the holding of classes.

Duterte visited Baguio and Benguet last year and met and commiserated with the families of those who perished during  in the landslides triggered by Typhoon Ompong in Baguio and Itogon, Benguet.
