911 has finally arrived in Puerto Vallarta as a universal emergency phone number – and the operators speak English! But to get truly rapid response throughout greater Vallarta, it’s necessary to upgrade the radio transmissions of our emergency responders: police and bomberos.
Local businesses attempted to raise $10,000 USD through private donations. But contributions stalled short of the needed amount. Because Security is one of ANA’s priority missions (see ‘VEA Program’ below), your ANA Board scrounged $20,000 pesos from its already tight 2017 budget to close the deal.
After all, if we’re not there for 911 Emergency Response, Police and Bomberos…how can we expect them to be there for us when we need them?
It’s not too late to contribute at GoFundMe.com/PV911!
