LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The third regional evacuation center built by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) in the Cordillera opened on Wednesday.

The P36-million facility, built on a 3,000-square meter land area donated by the provincial government at the Provincial Engineering Office compound in Barangay Wangal, can accommodate 130 individuals or about 33 families.

It carries the standard evacuation center complex design of the Department of Public Works and Highways and has gender-responsive facilities.

Aside from the living quarters, it has a dining area, a nursing room, separate bathrooms for male and female, wash area, an area for garbage disposal, a large parking area, and an activity area where “residents” can do activities while staying in the facility.

It also has an office and infirmary building and a generator room.

The facility was conceptualized to give comfort and allow the evacuees to move freely and normally.

Giving evacuation centers to the different provinces is the national government’s counterpart in mitigating human suffering during calamities.

“We are targeting to build eight regional evacuation centers in the Cordillera within the year,” Office of Civil Defense Cordillera Director Albert Mogol said.

He said the establishment of regional evacuation centers would ensure that classes are not disrupted after a calamity. School buildings and classrooms are usually used as evacuation centers during disasters.
