    Default Santiago 911 Response

    Good Morning, Yesterday a lady who lives in my Residencia in Embrujo III collapsed passed out on the steps. 911 call had a response time of about 15 minutes with two Police Officers on motorcycles and an apparently fully equipped ambulance. They appeared to know what they were doing. Lady refused going to the hospital. Apparently related to diabetes. FYI

    Good response time and nice to hear they were competent.
    Diabetes here in RD is a plague and people should be more careful of diet and these events will not happen.
    Love the response and Professionalism.

    Unfortunately, 1½ weeks ago, my sister-in-law did not have the same experience.

    She tried calling 911, got no response.
    Came running over to my house crying.

    Her mother was having a medical emergency, screaming in pain with every breath, shaking violently all over.

    I immediately rushed them by car to Clínica Corominas.
    Mother-in-law is okay for the time being, spent 3½ days in the clinic.

    For the record, her cell phone service is with "Orange".

    It's a new service with lots of room for improvement and reliability. Hopefully in time. Sometimes the service is still better than nothing.

    Another 911 call. On calle 43 a motoconcho tried to pass close to a car which had swerved to avoid a pothole. I witnessed this the guy and his bike ended up about 10 feet from me. He was bleeding from several places. 911 response about 10 minutes Cops on motos and ambulance.
