Alsons Development and Investment Corporation (Alsons Dev), in partnership with the Municipal Government of Alabel, recently broke ground for the Alabel Public Safety and Security Complex, the first integrated emergency response center in SOCCSKSARGEN.
The facility, located within Avia Estate, a master-planned, mixed-use township developed by Alsons Dev in Alabel, Sarangani (known locally as “Little Boracay” due to its closeness to a supremely picturesque beach and its azure waters), combines a police station, a fire substation, and a satellite emergency operations center.
The 1,800-sqm complex will be constructed by Alsons Dev and donated to the Alabel LGU, who will then turn over the operations of the police and fire stations to the Philippine National Police and Bureau of Fire Protection, respectively.
The satellite emergency operations center will be operated by the Municipal Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office, overseen by the Alabel LGU. Miguel A. Dominguez, representing Alsons Dev and the Alcantara Group (shown in photo with Alabel Mayor Vic Paul Salarda Sarangani Congressman Steve Solon and Governor Ruel Pacquiao, among others), led the ground-breaking. The ceremony coincided with Alabel’s 52nd Foundation Anniversary, and the 22nd Kasadyaan Festival of the municipality of Alabel.
