Gov. Tubban praises Pasil LGU's hardwork in promoting disaster-resilient communities

Pasil, Kalinga – During the groundbreaking ceremony of the Multipurpose Evacuation Center at Chuyugon, Dangtalan, Pasil this February 2, Governor Ferdinand Tubban lauded the efforts of Pasil local government unit headed by Mayor Alfredo ‘Chao-ig’ Malannag Jr. in promoting disaster-resilient communities.

According to the governor, the multipurpose evacuation center which costs P50 million will definitely help the community considering that the municipality is often battered by typhoons and other natural disasters.

Despite the lack of resources from their annual budget, the LGU officials took the initiative to forward a request for funding to the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) to which the agency responded positively.

“Daytoy a pasdek ket isu mangipakita iti panagkaykaysa dagiti umili ken kinasirib dagiti opisyales a mangbiruk ti pondo tapnu iti kasta ket adda iti naan-anay a pagturungan ti komunidad nu man pay adda dagiti madi a paspasamak,” stated Tubban.

Appreciating the determination of Pasil LGU, Tubban assured the support of the provincial government such that they allocated P10 million from the P999 million loan to bring a motorpool in the municipality.

“Natural ti kalamidad ket apay nga urayem paylang ti kalamidad samuntu ipan dagiay equipment. Ti kayat tayo, adda ditoyen Pasil diay equipment ta isu met ti mangsakop iti District 1. Adda man kalamidad wennu awan ket agtatrabaho-en dagiay equipment tayo, apan agaramid, ag-open iti naduma-duma a kalsada,” the governor explained.

Further, Tubban highlighted the importance of establishing an infirmary hospital in the municipality for immediate aid of those with injuries and illness. This, he said, is the reason why the provincial government allotted P60 million of the loan for the construction of infirmary hospitals in Pasil and Tinglayan.

The governor concluded his message by encouraging the community to do their part in helping the local officials implement their programs and plans.
