So the Delegado high tailed it to the beach on foot to warn beach goers of the danger. We're back to the dark ages. And it doesn't sound like the alarm will be getting fixed soon. The alarm isn't that old. It was put in after hurricane Patricia.
Speaking to preparedness, the Delegado needs two items. One is a short-wave radio system and a gasoline run saw (what are they called?) for fires and fallen trees. He currently has an old saw but it only works when it wants to (sounds like me, lol).
The radio is not only needed to connect with the outside during hurricanes, earthquakes and disasters. The radio is also needed to request help in medical emergencies and accidents where there is no reception. Cell phones are useless along many places on highway 200 and in several spots in town. Sometimes, communication is needed between crews or Melaque Proteccion Civil.
After Covid-19, we should have a campaign to equip the emergency crews with these items. Just sayen, Cruz
