First 5 CAR evacuation centers done by 2018
by Mary Jennifer G. Juezan

The Department of Public Works and Highways-Cordillera is implementing the construction of the first five evacuation centers in Abra, Apayao, Benguet, Ifugao, and Kalinga to address the need for temporary shelters of persons and families affected by disasters.

The construction located at Sitio Payanan, San Gregorio, Apayao is leading in the physical accomplishment at 48.29 percent followed by the project at Mudi-it, Dolores, Abra at 33.81 percent.

The construction located at Wangal, La Trinidad, Benguet has an accomplishment rate of 26.40 percent; while Lagawe, Ifugao and Bulanao, Tabuk City, Kalinga have an accomplishment rates of 5.03 percent and 3.94 percent, respectively.

These evacuation centers are aimed to protect lives from natural disasters in the region, which is among the major target outcomes of the Performance Governance System (PGS) strategy of DPWH.

The standard DPWH-designed evacuation center is an eco and gender-friendly complex that could accommodate 130 individuals or 33 families at a time. It is located on a 3,000 square-meter lot that is to be appropriated by the concerned local governments units.

Each facility has a two-story building with dining, kitchen, wash rooms, breastfeeding, storage, communications, and accommodation areas are located. Two separate buildings are allocated for toilet and bathrooms for male and female, respectively. A building for each the pharmacy and infirmary; wash area; and water tank, laundry and drying area is provided. The complex has also a pump room, generator room, garbage disposal facility, and a parking and assembly area. The grounds are accessible to motor vehicles with driveways surrounding the complex.

Cordillera is among the identified areas in the country that has the widest threat of geological hazards. The DPWH is looking for more areas to build evacuation centers in the region to augment the need for immediate provision of basic services to more individuals and families that could be potentially at risk or in danger in the event of disaster.

These projects are being undertaken in cooperation with the National Disaster and Risk Reduction Management Council and its regional offices, and the local government units.

Once completed, the evacuation centers will be turned over to the LGUs.
