By DON WINNER for Panama-Guide.com - Authorities from the Panamanian fire department and the National Civil Protection System (SINAPROC) met this morning to define strategies for the development of mass evacuation plans for large commercial centers and popular discotheques. Roberto Velásquez Abood, the Director of SINAPROC, said they are working to offer greater security to these entertainment areas because many of these facilities do not have clearly established evacuation routes or emergency plans in case of a disaster or emergency. SINAPROC has been working continuously on emergency and evacuation plans for governmental buildings, schools, private buildings and businesses. These plans provide organizations and effective way to respond to disasters requiring a partial or total evacuation of the premises.

Editor's Comment: SINAPROC Director Roberto Velásquez Abood is a young up and coming member of the PRD. He's managed to spin his SINAPROC gig into excellent name recognition and will most definitely continue to work his way up through the ranks. Before too long he'll get elected to something, and if not whoever wins the PRD primary, either Juan Carlos or Balbina Herrera, would be well advised to keep him on their team.
