Disaster preparedness
center ready soon

The compound of the Bacolod City Police Office will host the SMC-Petron Bacolod Disaster Preparedness and Relief Center soon, Bacolod Rep. Anthony Golez said in a press release.

Golez heads the three-pronged disaster management program not only for the city but for the whole Western Visayas, the press release from his office said.

The Center will provide support to local government units in cases of disasters and related emergencies, in terms of training for emergency response, relief assistance, paramedic services, and other logistical requirements necessary for disaster and emergency response, the press release said.

On the same day, the Bacolod Humanitarian, Emergency, Logistics, Paramedics Service or Bacolod H.E.L.P.S. will also be organized and formalized, it added.

Golez, who is vice-chairman of the Congressional Committee on Health, is pushing for the healthy lifestyle advocacy merging this with the critical need for disaster preparedness as an imperative in the wake of recent natural calamities that hit the country, the press release added.*
