The country’s first regional evacuation center was recently completed in Barangay Agtipal in Bacnotan, La Union.
The evacuation center is aimed to house 400 families should a disaster hit Bacnotan and other nearby towns and municipalities. The project was done through by the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council, Office of Civil Defense, and Department of Public Works and Highways.
Mayor Francis Fontanilla even visited the structure, which can now be considered as a source of Bacnotan pride!
Here’s to saving lives!
