TACLOBAN CITY – Mayor Cristina G. Romualdez on behalf of the City Government received a Multi-Purpose Training Center equipped with emergency rescue equipment located on a lot owned by the City last March 15, 2017.

This one-story building was donated by the United Nations Development Programme and the European Union primarily to serve as a Training Center for Emergency Response.
