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.
Specialized units to deal with contamination and hazard materials also took part in the drill.

The CENARE is an 88 bed facility located in La Uruca with restricted access.
