The city government of Tagbilaran has given the public a glimpse of its state-of-the-art command center as a way to boost the security needs and to prevent criminals to operate in the city.
Jeanette Busano of the City Media Bureau said the command center boasts of a central intelligence unit with a huge LED wall.
The LED wall allows the monitoring of 48 strategic entry and exit points in the city with CCTV coverage.
The command center will serve as a monitoring hub, said Busano.
Busano said the command center is not yet complete and still can’t provide the total cost of the project as of the moment.
The hub will help the city first responders to cover the traffic, disaster and emergency situations.
The command center was built with the resiliency of the city in mind.
City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Gerard Lavadia said the existing command center will compliment the existing set-up of the disaster risk mitigation measures.
Recently, Tagbilaran installed LED signages in seven strategic locations as a means for information dissmination especially for disaster mitigation.
The current city administration has been focused on disaster risk reduction as the city is prone to certain disasters such as flooding, earthquakes and other natural disasters.
