MAZATLAN. – At least 120 shelters will be installed in Sinaloa, prior to the rains and hurricanes that are planned for this 2022 and that, until now, have not been used by citizens who feel at risk.  

The director of Civil Protection in the state, Héctor Félix Carrillo, mentioned that they are already coordinated with both the National Guard, the State DIF and the municipalities, registering that the majority are schools. 

“We have around 120 temporary shelters distributed in the 18 municipalities, we are ready to support the society that needs to be sheltered, if necessary… The vast majority of temporary shelters are schools, almost 85 percent” he declared.  

To locate them, Civil Protection will distribute tarpaulins indicating that there will be a refuge, so that citizens who need it can approach it with ease and confidence, strategically placed and not lost in visibility.  

These shelters will have the essentials, said Félix Carrillo, basic necessities, which, between Civil Protection, the DIF and the National Guard, will incorporate, as well as food in case they are also needed.  

“It is worth remembering that Sedena, through the DN-III Plan, are the ones that are going to grant us, we have the bare minimum for what is required in the first hours of assistance,” he said.  

Among these things are mats, medications, first aid care, food, clothing, bathrooms, among other things.
