Inauguration of the Philippine Red Cross Logistics and Training Center

Philippine Red Cross (PRC) chairman Richard Gordon led the inauguration of the PRC Logistics and Training Center in Subic on July 13. The PRC logistics and training center serves three functions: as a logistics hub for prepositioning relief supplies and equipment for local and international disaster response; as training center for strengthening the capacity of its chapters nationwide in assisting and responding to disasters; and as an operation center to monitor, control, and manage disaster preparedness and response operations, in case the Operation Center in Manila is compromised due to disasters and calamities.

Joining Gordon in the inauguration are: Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority Chairman and Administrator Roberto Garcia; Bataan Governor Albert Garcia; PRC Secretary General Gwendolyn Pang; PRC Board of Governors: Juan Miguel Zubiri, Lorna Kapunan, Rosalind Wee, Carissa Coscolluela, Andrew Nocon, Wilma Amoranto-Sarino, Antonio Soriano; and representatives of Red Cross Red Crescent national societies.
