Completed evacuation center in Gingoog to strengthen disaster response

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)
