Today’s event marks a special milestone in the fifty-year history of Alsons Development when the break ground of the public safety complex consisting the fire department, the COMPAC police station and the satellite 911 station.
Davao City is acknowledged to be the safest city in the country and only surpassed by four other cities in the world. It is also known that the 911 Central Emergency Response Center as the first and the best in the country. And this has become a model for other cities to follow.

This donation is our modest contribution to the city’s program for the promotion of public safety and security services to the city of Davao.
We thank the Mayor for his untiring efforts and desire to always keep the Davaoeños safe, making Davao one of the most livable cities in the world. This complex will serve the needs of the Buhangin District the most proximate of which are the barangays of Cabantian, Buhangin, Tigatto and Indangan.
Where we stand now is a township that will have 10 hectares of educational, commercial and institutional components. The residential component in the township being Northtown is located to our far right. We are about 5 kilometers away from the nearest fire station and 911 in Sandawa is 18 kilometers away, it is for this reason that we have prioritized the construction of the public safety complex and the first component in the township. As the residential communities in the Buhangin District continue to increase in number, it has become evident that the public safety complex in this area is essential to ensure that life’s emergencies are immediately taken cared of.
