TUBO, Abra – The municipal government of Tubo has recently inaugurated a P23.8-million building that will house the operations center of its Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (MDRRMC).

Mayor Liberty Ballangan-La-os together with Office of the Civil Defense-Cordillera Director Albert Mogol presided over the opening ceremony.

Mogol congratulated the Tubo MDRRMC for the new facility that he said will strengthen the municipality’s efforts to become resilient to disasters.

“There should be oneness and public cooperation in DRRM efforts and development initiatives in Tubo. Achieving disaster resilience requires whole-of-society efforts,” Mogol said.

La-os expressed gratitude to the OCD for its support to the municipality’s DRRM initiatives. 

She enjoined the people of Tubo to continue working together towards disaster-resilient and progressive communities.

The MDRRMC building that started construction in March 2022 was completed in two phases. Its blessing and inauguration was held during the recently-concluded Begnas Festival.

The new building will house the MDRRMO, emergency operations team, conference hall, staff house, and reception area.

The Tubo MDRRMC was awarded as fully compliant in the recent Gawad Kalasag Seal for Excellence in DRRM and Humanitarian Assistance under the local DRRM councils and offices category. – Jam Malingan
