For a community where the nearest fire station is five kilometers away and the nearest Central 911 station is 18 kilometers away, the new Cabantian Public Safety Complex will be a welcome development that promises to help keep Cabantian and its neighboring communities safe and secure.
The Cabantian Public Safety Complex, a donation from Alsons Development and Investment Corporation (Alsons Dev) to the City Government of Davao, is an integrated compound that will contain three buildings for a Central 911 satellite station, a fire station, and a police station. The company also intends to donate an ambulance for the use of Central 911.
Gracing the groundbreaking event on July 17, 2015, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte thanked Alsons Dev for its generous donation. The ceremony began with the blessing of the site led by Fr. Jesus Samaniego. A time capsule was then lowered by Mayor Duterte, Alsons Dev Executive Vice President Rosie Dominguez, Alsons Dev Director Alex I. Alcantara, Sr. Supt. Vicente Danao of the Philippine National Police, Central 911 Chief Emmanuel Jaldon, and BFP City Director Carlos T. Dueñas.
“As residential communities in the Buhangin District continue to increase in number, it has become evident that a public safety complex in this area is essential to make sure that life’s emergencies are immediately taken care of.” said Alsons Dev EVP Rosie Dominguez. “At Alsons Dev, it is our corporate mission that we become instruments in enhancing the lives of the people in the communities where we operate.”
Sitting on a land area of 2,000 square meters, the Cabantian Public Safety Complex is the first component of the proposed 10-hectare commercial, institutional, and educational town center located just outside of Northtown Alsons Dev’s I16-hectare residential township development.
The Cabantian Public Safety Complex is slated for completion in the 2nd quarter of 2016.
