The United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) has decided to provide Thua Thien-Hue province with communication equipment worth nearly VND4.6 billion to cope with natural disasters.

The provincial Natural Disaster Prevention Centre (NDPC) will install the equipment at its new facilities, which are currently under construction.

Earlier, in February 2014, the USPACOM also granted more than VND8.5 billion worth of non-refundable aid to the central province to build the NDPC.

The three-storey centre is being built in Hue City on an area of 900sq.m with many functional rooms. It is expected to be put into operation early next year, serving the province’s natural disaster prevention, fighting and mitigation in coming years.
