Education dept seeks to position educational equipment near disaster areas
By Juzel L. Danganan

MANILA, Jan. 10 (PNA) -- The Department of Education has proposed to the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) to allow it to enter into supply contracts for educational equipment with firms located near disaster areas.

Education Secretary Leonor Briones said in a press conference Tuesday that the department has “proposed to preposition school supplies along the regions” that are near typhoon and disaster areas for the quick rehabilitation of schools. This will include textbooks, computers and other equipment.

She further said the department will set an “allowance” for potential losses from natural disasters.

Briones stressed that the department has to address the potential hazards of typhoons with creativity.

The program will be covered by its quick disaster response fund, if approved for transfer by the DBM, and will cost PHP650 million. However, Briones noted that the budget may increase as it also includes the allocation for new school buildings.

She also pointed out that all the schools, which are currently under construction, are designed to withstand a storm of 285 km. per hour. (PNA)
