Very interesting discussions, which I think will be very helpful for
many DRR managers.  One thing I would like to clarify:

> For DRR managers, they need to be aware of the "quality and capacity

> * type of disaster
> * structural integrity
> * number of evacuees it can accommodate
> * length of time of the evacuees to stay depending on the resources available

These points were discussed during one of our meetings with the LGU's
DRRM officials,
The context of the discussion was, beyond the location of the
evacuation_center what other information are
needed by locals and responders during a crisis?

It was not the intention to add and maintain such information within OSM.
