Antipolo begins construction of new building for emergency operation
Antipolo City recently held the groundbreaking for construction of its three story Emergency Operation Center building.
It would house offices and organizations involved in safety and security.
Antipolo Mayor Andrea Ynares said the needs of the city in this aspect have expanded during the pandemic, hence the need for the new building.
The center would serve as the new home of the Office of Public Safety and Security, Antipolo City Anti-Drug Abuse Council, Antipolo Peace and Order Council, Bureau of Fire Protection, Military Reservists, Red Cross, the National Bureau of Investigation, and the like, Ynares said.
It would also serve as the office of the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office.
The new building would feature a helipad on its roof deck in case a helicopter would need to make a landing.
But the city can’t afford to buy its own helicopter, she clarified.
