P5.1M worth of equipment to be acquired for Kidapawan Call-911 Response Unit – Mayor Evangelista
Kidapawan Mayor Joseph Evangelista announced that the city government will procure P5.1 million worth of equipment for its Call-911 Response Unit.
The politiko said this is to strenghten its response capability, timely coordination with other agencies, and anti-crime and terrorism monitoring.
Evangelista said the equipment includes P1.3- million high- resolution close circuit television cameras that would be installed in strategic areas, particularly along the Davao-Cotabato highway and other public passages.
While the remaining P3.8-million would be utilized to improve the current Intelligence Operation Center and to purchase Internet Protocol (IP) radio, digital handheld radios, digital repeater radio and computer software and servers.
“Ongoing 911 innovations are underway in order to meet our visions and objectives in serving the public in times of troubles and emergencies in a swift manner,” the Kidapawan mayor stressed.
The politiko also assured of the procurement of additional mobile units and emergency kits for the 911 medical responders this year.
Kidapawan City’s 911 entity, being the sole emergency response unit currently existing in Region 12, was set-up in 2013, and had served over 15,000 emergencies here and in adjacent municipalities.
