Need a Safe Boarding House in Baguio City?
Going around the city to look for a nice place to stay is not as easy as pie. As a student, there is a long list of conditions that should be considered in choosing the right condo unit, boarding room or dormitory.
Here are some of the things that should be checked to make sure that the security of a boarder is more important to the owner than the monetary gains of the business:
Current Business Permit
In order for a dormitory or boarding house to operate as a business, the city government or any other local government unit (LGU) requires a business permit. The process of getting a permit requires other procedures to make sure that the security of customers, who are boarders, is given attention to.
However, not all establishments have business permit. These might have failed to pass government requirements. Or the worse is that, the establishment might have substandard or unpermitted aspects of the service.
Functional Fire Exit
Foolish boarding house owners do not think that a fire exit is necessary after the government inspection. They turn their fire exits into dumping areas. Then one day when an accident happens, the fire exit is not available to save lives.
A fire exit and a fire plan is a requirement because no one knows when accidents occur. Mapping out how to access the fire exit from the designated room is important.
Aside from the fire exit, first aid kits and a fire extinguisher should be available 24/7.
Effective Security Guard
Most buildings have a security guard who locks the gate after curfew time and checks the ID of visiting guests. This is one of the advantages of taller buildings.
However, this is not the case for some residential buildings that cannot sustain the salary of a roving security personnel.
To solve the absence of a security guard, the owner should provide an easy access to a public road, to the nearest hospital, and to the police station in-charge of the area.
The Power of Recommendation
It is always best to seek the advice of people who are already staying in the city. They can recommend boarding houses that are really nice. They list down areas that should be avoided because of rampant theft cases. Friends and relatives in the city recommend owners who are known to give importance to the security of their customers.
