Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro commended the efforts of Bacolod Rep. Anthony Rolando Golez, Jr. in the construction of the Bacolod City Disaster Preparedness and Relief Center, a press release form the office of Golez said yesterday.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the DPRC was held April 24, in the Bacolod City Police Office Compound that was attended by several high-ranking officials from the government, it said.

Daryll Wong, the Adjutant General of the Department of Defense of the State of Hawaii, was present in the event and spoke about how disaster should be a well-coordinated effort, the press release said.

Philippine National Police Police Chief Superintendent Gil Hitosis and National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council Administrator Benito Ramos, gave messages lauding the efforts of Golez, the press release added.

Bacolod Chief of Police Ricardo Dela Paz gave foyer honors to the dignitaries who attended the event. Councilors Archie Baribar, Catalino Alisbo, El Cid Familiaran, Sonya Verdeflor and Elmer Sy were present.

In his letter, Luistro said: “On behalf of the DepEd family, I commend you for your efforts in the creation of the DPRC in Bacolod City. We fully support you in your advocacy of encouraging citizens to work hand in hand with public officers in ensuring that we will all be prepared in times of calamities and disasters,” the press release added.*
