Jayapura, Jubi – Jayapura City Education Department wants to make sure that schools in Jayapura are safe in terms of construction, said the department’s head of Planning Division, Laba Sembiring.
Construction of school buildings should involve a third party in the process of planning and construction.
“We can assure the school buildings are safe,” Sembiring told Jubi on Monday afternoon (10/11).
Before undertaking construction, a consultant planner wiill calculate the strength of the building, such as what would be happened if there is a disaster. “That’s why we give to the consultant planner. ” he said.
Member of Jayapura City Council Commission D overseeing Education, Kenan Sipayung, said it would continue to pay attention to the concerns of citizens.
“This concern needs to be taken seriously. Based on my observation, it seems less secure for the elementary students, not only the strength of the building, but also the exit way for evacuation. It seems that has not been thought out. Still I understand, we are constrained by the availability of land and the number of students, “he said. (Sindung Sukoco/ Tina)
