Satellite phones for Puerto Rico Emergency response now!
This petition had 746 supporters
The people of Puerto Rico are in serious danger since hurricane María impacted the island. Communications systems are down and people have no ability to communicate their needs posing a deadly hazard as they are unable to reach out for life saving help. Those who have family in the island are also suffering the deep emotional impact of lack of communication not knowing the conditions of their loved ones or if they are even alive.
While the communications system is restored and aid is provided, we demand that satellite phones -which do not depend on the damaged local systems- be provided. Satellite phones can immediately work as a basic tool for the survival of Puerto Ricans. We recognize that there are many priorities including the restoring of power in hospitals, the distribution of food and water and other basic needs but without communication systems in place all other efforts fall short as people are unable to communicate and strategize their responses to the need.
Satellite cell phones should be send to Puerto Rico by the US government entities in charge of rescue and aid missions immediately.
We the people of Puerto Rico and their families and allies in the United States demand that satellite phones be provided and distributed immediately as one of the first steps in life saving response !
WE ASK THE CONGRESS AND THE FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT OFFICE-FEMA-TO TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTOIN. TO MAKE THIS REAL AS SOON AS POSSIBLE....EVERY MINUTE THAT PASSES WITHOUT ACCESS TO COMMUNICATION IN PERTO RICO IS A POTENTIAL LOSS OF LIFE.
PLEASE SEND SATELLITE PHONES TO THE PEOPLE OF PUERTO RICO NOW!!!
