Gov assures Zambo Norte's preparedness for any calamity

by Alfonso T. Ruda

DIPOLOG CITY, JAN. 9 (PIA) -- Getting lessons from the Iligan City and Cagayan de Oro City tragedies wherein more than 1,000 lives were lost, the provincial government is now preparing for any calamity that may hit the province.

Zamboanga del Norte Governor Rolando E. Yebes has assured that the provincial government will not be caught unprepared under his watch, during emergency and when calamity strikes.

Yebes said, the Provincial Government will fast-track the construction of evacuation centers in the different barangays of the province in 2012.

“Dili ko gusto nga panahon sa kalamidad ug emerhensiya, maglisod ang gobyerno pagpangita ug lugar nga maoy himoong evacuation centers, sama sa nahitabo sa dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro ug Iligan diin naglisod sila pagpangita ug himoong evacuation area nga pahilunaan sa mga biktima sa baha nga dala sa bagyong si Sendong,” matod pa ni Yebes. (“I don’t want that during calamities and emergency, the government will find a hard time looking for an evacuation center like what happened in Cagayan de Oro City and Iligan City, wherein they find hard time looking for an area to place the victims of flood brought about by typhoon Sendong,”) Yebes said.
