Emergency Management Office of Vieques
The Emergency Management Office of Vieques (OMME) serves as the primary dispatch center, ambulance bay, emergency planning, operations and coordination center for the island of Vieques, Puerto Rico. From this office, seven paramedics respond to approximately 5,000 emergency medical calls a year, serving an estimated 8,000-10,000 citizens. The office is currently powered by Vieques’ diesel-based grid, with one functional back-up generator that has had to be repaired multiple times over the past year.
We are currently in the process of designing and contracting a solar plus storage system to provide resilient power for communications equipment, lighting, and refrigeration.
