GINGOOG CITY, Misamis Oriental (PIA)–Residents of Barangay Daan Lungsod are now ensured of shelter in times of disaster as the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH)-10 completes its Evacuation Center in their area.
Under the Duterte Administration’s Build Build Build initiative, the P33 million new center has a standard covered court design with gender-sensitive and persons with disability (PWDs) accessibility to ensure the safety and inclusivity of all citizens in the area.
With a fully furnished kitchen, mess hall, reception, storage, breastfeeding room, conjugal room, admin office, record room, electrical room, and stage and play area, the Evacuation Center aim to not only provide a safe space in times of disaster to the people but also provide a dignified area for citizens to stay in.
Strategically located to provide a safe space specifically for communities near the riverbank, the new facility can also be used for other recreational and community-based activities on normal days. (DPWH-10/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)
