Bomberos Stage Evacuation Drill At Opening of CENARE

The Cuerpo de Bomberos (Fire Department) staged an early morning “simulacro” evacuation drill ahead of the opening of the CENARE, the converted rehabilitation center into a hospital exclusively for patients of the coronavirus.

The drill began at 6:00 am with several machine units of the Bomberos, with hoses connected to fire hydrants and a ‘cisterna’ (tanker truck) to ensure a constant flow of water to fight a fire.
