Maybe a non-functioning 911 system isn't really that bad when compared with the fact that Puerto Rico repeatedly loses power, which subsequently turns off the running water because the water pumps can't run without electricity (and they don't have backup generators).
The Secretary of Public Security made the announcement in brief expressions broadcast tonight.
“Tonight, a decision was made to close the 9-1-1 Emergency Systems Bureau Call Reception Centers (NSE911) after employees from both facilities reported positive results for COVID-19. To guarantee the continuity of operations and that emergencies are attended to correctly, the Office of the Bureau for Emergency Management and Disaster Administration (NMEAD) will be used, known as Central Control, which operates 24 hours with duly trained personnel ", he said. the official.
Janer maintained that, to report emergency situations, they should call 787-724-0124. The Dispatch staff will channel calls with the corresponding municipal or state response agencies for each emergency. Similarly, they can call 787-343-2020 to communicate directly with the Police.
Vox Day isn't being overly cute when he states that the decline of Civilization means the lack of a plumbing system. You need water to run it.
And if you want to get even more ridiculous, Puerto Rico regularly runs into DROUGHTS despite being a tropical island and is forced to turn off water or restrict usage on certain days.
The water and power inconsistency is so bad that most people have water cisterns and power generators. I certainly do. Going off-grid entirely is something I would do if I knew I wasn't headed to Idaho to ride out 2033.
