Test of the 911 emergency system is run today
The government is running a trial today, Monday 12 May to test the 911 emergency system. Minister of the Presidency Gustavo Montalvo is heading the initiative for the Medina Presidency and coordinating with all the government departments involved. A three-minute video is has been produced to prepare residents in the National District for using the system. The video lists the types of emergencies for which residents can call the helpline, and warns against making fake calls.
The plan is for the system to be available in the National District and the Province of Santo Domingo by the end of the month.
The state-of-the-art 911 headquarters are located at Av. Abraham Lincoln at the intersection with Dr. Nunez Dominguez in the neighborhood of La Julia. Several foreign legations have made sizeable contributions to the new security system.
