    I suppose some of those faults connect to DR?  ( Thinking that’s the last thing PR needs now, a quake of substantial size).

    Was reading the report of the earthquake drill yesterday and couldn't help but thinking...

    I'm all for raising awareness, practicing various responses and for the govt to be seen flying helicopters across the skies. In a small way, having at least thought about a possible response is a good thing and may be of some small benefit.

    The practical reality of a "catastrophic earthquake" in this country doesn't seem to have been taken into consideration when planning this exercise. Poor construction standards will see lots of rubble in the streets. Many buildings will suffer damage to the point of not being usable. This will probably include some hospitals reducing the number of people who can be treated for "catastrophic" injury at any one time.

    The value of driving injured simulacrums around in ambulances down streets that will be impassable going to hospitals that will not be operational, or pointing a fire hose at a simulacrum fire when in reality there will be no water for that hose is of questionable benefit.

    In this country more attention should be placed on planning how to get survivors out of the disaster zone, where they will be taken, how will they be housed, getting much needed basic supplies such as food, water & medicine into the areas that need those things and keeping basic infrastructure operational such as communication services so that the Govt can talk to the people and the people themselves can reach out as need be.

    This exercise and perhaps the thinking of those in charge appears to ignore the basic fact that a "catastrophic earthquake" (their words not mine) is going to be really, really bad. The aftermath will not be set straight in a day or two. There needs to be stockpiles of essential supplies ready to be distributed within hours of the event. People digging relatives out of collapsed buildings will be thirsty very quickly. There will be lots of propane related fires and lots of really gory injuries requiring miles and miles of sterile bandages and pallets of antibiotics. There will be no light at night and hordes of people will be taking advantage of the darkness to behave badly.

    Helicopters flying overheard may look good but unless they are loaded with the supplies that are in demand, they should probably be kept on the ground to save the fuel. A well thought out and provisioned logistical response is what will be needed in the immediate aftermath as aftershocks rumble through the area and international aid is loaded and delivered.

    Loaders need to clear the streets, survivors need to be taken to less damaged areas of the country and supported there. Sadly, many of the badly injured are going to die. The focus needs to be on keeping those who are not badly injured from becoming so, by way of dehydration, starvation, disease, more falling debris and of course at the hands of desperate, hungry and thirsty people who have no where to go and no way to get there.


    From today's DR1 News:

    Earthquake drills in Santiago
    On the morning of 14 March 2018, the city of Santiago underwent an emergency drill for a catastrophic earthquake. The Ministry of Environment and the Emergency Operations Committee (COE) organized the simulacrum. Sirens sounded throughout the city as of 9:45am with all public and private institutions in the city participating. 911 vehicles were seen transferring “the injured” to health centers. Even helicopters were active.

    The Regional University Hospital Cabral y Baez, the Arturo Grullon Children’s Hospital and the IDSS hospital together with major private clinics such as the Union Medica and the Metropolitan Hospital of Santiago (HOMS) also took part in the drill. At the different schools students gathered at their assigned places of safety under the watchful eye of their teachers. Even the government office buildings were emptied during the drill. The Cibao International Airport was also the scene of emergency drill.

    According to Minister Francisco Dominguez Brito and COE director general Juan Manuel Mendez, this activity has served to raise the awareness in the population of the importance of being prepared for an earthquake. He said the preparedness exercise could save thousands of lives. Dominquez Brito expressed his satisfaction with the orderly manner in which the simulation was carried out.
