The ATS System: Safe and Dignified Living Spaces for Displaced Populations (Catmon fire in Malabon)
The May 2018 Catmon fire incident in Malabon displaced more than a thousand families. Deployment of ATS was participated by the local government, technical volunteers, and affected communities. Post-displacement interviews reveal that then displaced families appreciate the setup and were able to continue with their lives because they have a safe, decent, and enough space for rest and domestic activities.
Partner cities during a three-day workshop on ATS Systems and Camp Coordination and Camp Management. One of the activities is a tabletop exercise wherein participants plan an evacuation site based on their city’s contingency plan on a particular hazard.
