Hi Maning,

 Camiguin Island has lost of evacuation centers all around it, I believe
for Tsunamis. I saw them when riding around there. I think it is a very
important item to map long and short term .. I ma not sure if they are
intended for a volcano eruption, as the signs said Tsunami Evacuation
Center and almost always pointed up a set of stairs .. Camiguin has two
active volcano's and a Philvolcs monitoring station on it. Worth a visit if
you are ever there .. nice people ... and a great view ..

I guess the question is, are there different types of evacuation centers??
I am not sure. If a school is in a low zone is it appropriate for a
Tsunami?? I guess GuaGua will not have any Tsunami Evacuation Centers, but
will have earthquake, volcano, lahar flows, etc.

Should they be tagged for the type of disaster they are intended for, or
are they generic

Lastly, would it be appropriate to include contact details for the
different services?? Hard to maintain unless the relief agencies do it them
selves ..

> Dear everyone,
> Just a brief update on the status of mapping with LGUs in Pampanga.
> If you have been monitoring the edits recently, you will notice that
> the Municipality of Guagua is getting a lot of edits recently
> specifically on adding building.
> The DRRM Office have several volunteer students doing both armchair
> and field mapping.
> Being newbies, you will notice that the edits needs further improvement.
> I visited them last week to orient the students on the proper mapping
> conventions.
> We are also using the tasking manager to divide the tasks efficiently
> and avoid overlaps.
> The task used is here: http://tasks.hotosm.org/job/331
> Another discussion we had last week was how to tag public facilities
> that serves as evacuation centers during a crisis.  These are usually
> schools, barangay halls, etc., for the meantime we added the tag:
> evacuation_center=yes.
> A sample of this features are here: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/3DL
> Do you think this is the appropriate tag?  Let's discuss.
