It is expected that rain will rain in one day half of what it rains in a year in the Region.] | Firefighters report that they do not have the necessary equipment or sufficient personnel to handle flood emergencies "but, if necessary, we will go" |
Ms. Counselor, Mrs. Secretary, firefighters do not have minimum material and necessary for flood emergencies, we requested it 2 years ago and it was approved by the corresponding commission but never delivered.
Neither have we received training in this regard, nor do we have staff to deal with this kind of interventions with guarantees, but we will do likewise.
We do not even have enough staff to cover all the services that are made during the summer season, but in situations like generalized FLOODS even less.
Who is responsible for this disastrous management?
WE SUSPEND TEMPORARILY THE MOBILIZATIONS.
The firemen of the Region of Murcia Consortium will be, whenever they need us, next to the citizens.
We will intervene in the rescue, flooding, bogging down, evacuations or any type of emergency that may occur this weekend due to heavy rains.
We have postponed our mobilization until the alert for meteorological phenomena is over.
We will go to real emergencies when we are needed.
But we want to warn that we derive responsibility for the safety of the population and the interveners to the Technical Directorate of the CEIS, which allows, with their complacent silence, to continue working in these conditions despite knowing the danger we are facing.
The regional administration is not giving enough security to the citizens, ignoring the requests of the firemen: personnel of new incorporation, operative project and budget, all these claims have a single objective.
PROVIDE THE BEST SERVICE POSSIBLE TO ALL CITIZENS at all points in the region, including those municipalities that pay disciplinarily their annual fee, Mr. Manager, but to whom we have totally abandoned.
We continue to wait for the President of the CARM to fulfill the commitment he acquired a week ago and to receive us with solutions to requests that should be yours, those of the Counselor of the Presidency, those of the Director General or those of the Head of Firefighters in Functions.
While you are quietly in your armchairs, the firefighters will forget what concerns us and, once again, we will go out where we are needed, with or without material, with or without personnel, because we can not say no to someone who needs help .
In COORDINATION 112 we have informed that they can count on us.
Tonight we'll sleep in our homes with the phones by the pillow.
At the call of 112 (or our own companions) we will go to the available firefighters, no doubt.
Hurry, please, Mr. PAS, your and our neighbors need solutions.
In Murcia, early morning of December 17, 2016.
Sergio Rubén NICOLÃS VILLAESCUSA.
Delegate of personnel of CCOO Firemen Region of Murcia.
