A newly- inaugurated three- story evacuation center funded under the Bottom- Up Budgeting of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is expected to benefit 617 households of Barangay Salapingao, Dagupan City.

The spacious evacuation center can accommodate over 1,000 evacuees with basic amenities such as potable water; electricity; comfort rooms for females, males and persons with disabilities (PWDs); communal kitchen; dining and laundry area. Other equally important components include a Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) Office, clinic infirmary, breastfeeding area, stock room and a roof deck.

The facility, which has a land area of 1,236 square meters, has a total project cost of Php 15,100,400 (Php 10,786,000 from the DILG- BUB and Php 4,314,400 counterpart from the City Government).

City Mayor Belen T. Fernandez thanked the DILG for the BUB- funded facility.

“Malaki ang pasasalamat ko sa DILG. Dahil sa kanila, tayo po ay binigyan ng pondo mula sa Bottom- Up Budgeting at ito ang ating pinatayo”, she said while addressing barangay residents during the inauguration.

The City Mayor said that the construction of the evacuation center plays a significant role in their efforts to save lives during the occurrence of any disaster.

“Ang significance ng [evacuation] center po na ito, unang-una po ay para sa ating buhay- masave natin ang buhay. Yan ang number one po. Kasi ang pamilya po natin ang lakas natin. Kahit saan po tayo pumunta, ang iniisip natin ay ang ating pamilya”, she said.

Dagupan is a coastal city of Pangasinan perched on a wetland and within the typhoon belt. Its inherent geological and geophysical characteristics made the city very susceptible to various natural hazards. Barangay Salapingao is one of its five island barangays vulnerable to typhoons, storm surge, destructive flooding and earthquakes.

The barangay, which is barely a kilometer away from the Lingayen Gulf and 2.5 km away from the city proper, can only be reached by motorized banca. Its location poses a challenge for city and barangay officials to ensure the safety of barangay residents during disasters.

Prior to the construction of the evacuation center, residents only have school classrooms and few sturdy structures to take refuge in during typhoons and flooding.

With the completion of the facility, they are now assured of a safe shelter located in an elevated area and structurally- designed to withstand strong typhoons and even earthquakes.

The evacuation center is expected to have indirect benefits to residents of two other adjacent island barangays - Lomboy and Pugaro. The land on which the facility stands was donated by Mr. Romulo O. Reyes and his family.

The multi- level facility adheres to the national standards for evacuation centers per DILG Memorandum Circular No. 2015-45, “Guidelines for the Implementation of Provision of Potable Water Supply, Local Access Road and other Local Infrastructure Projects under the Bottom-Up Budgeting”.
