Consul in Florida guarantees unbreakable autotank repair

Cônsul honorário Caesar de Paço fez ontem doação. Em tempo de seca, autotanque tem garantido água às populações Se o Natal é uma época de solidariedade, para o cônsul honorário de Portugal na Florida este tempo não é diferente do resto do ano. Na altura dos fogos que transformaram o Norte do país num inferno, já Caesar de Paço, alertado pelo seu braço direito, Maria João Ávila, e pela deputada do PSD, Teresa Morais, para as enormes necessidades que os bombeiros passavam, fizera um donativo generoso. Ontem de manhã, o açoriano emigrado há décadas nos Estados Unidos repetiu o gesto, oferecendo 16 mil euros aos Bombeiros Voluntários de Carnaxide para que pudessem reparar o autotanque que esteve no combate aos fogos em outubro e agora, em período de seca, é usado para assegurar que as populações não ficam sem água. “É uma ajuda de extrema importância”, afirmou Fernando Curto, presidente da Associação Nacional de Bombeiros Profissionais, que recordou que este não foi o primeiro ato de solidariedade do cônsul honorário e que essa ajuda tem sido “fundamental para a instituição”. Com capacidade para 38 602 litros, o maior autotanque do país, oferecido há 13 anos pela Câmara de Oeiras aos bombeiros – que esteve agora, até sexta-feira, a prestar uma preciosa ajuda às populações da zona de Mangualde e Viseu, levando-lhes água potável – estava há meses sem travão de mão. Sofrera ainda um rebentamento de pneu. Mas Ricardo, voluntário em Carnaxide, continuava a conduzi-lo, mesmo durante o seu período de férias, porque era preciso levar água de barragem em barragem, abastecer hospitais e depósitos para consumo. “É difícil, porque se trata de um veículo de 60 toneladas”, explicou, “e é antigo, o camião é de 1987”, junta o colega bombeiro António. Mas os riscos acrescidos não os impediram de cumprir a missão. António e Ricardo fizeram ainda questão de mostrar ao cônsul o resultado do último donativo: uma dezena de caixas de botas antifogo (cujo preço ronda os 200 euros por par), equipamento de proteção individual que os bombeiros voluntários de Carnaxide conseguiram adquirir depois da sua última visita. Agora, “espero que o autotanque possa ser arranjado o mais rápido possível”, disse Caesar de Paço, quando entregou o cheque e agradeceu a lembrança oferecida pelos bombeiros, “em reconhecimento pela sua generosidade”.

Debra Faiello endorses Droi-Kon ®

Summit Nutritionals International 29 Rockaway Rd Lebanon, NJ 08833   Droi-Kon has worked wonders for Zeus, my 95 pound Explosive Detector K9 partner. Zeus is my 3rd K9 partner. Before I rescued Zeus, I trained K9 Caesar, narcotics detector, and K9 Xena, explosive detector. I had a very successful law enforcement career with my two K9 partners. I was asked to take on a third K9, however, as a puppy, he was diagnosed with Ununited Anconeal Process (Elbow Dysplasia). His original owner gave him up because of this disease. I rescued him and some recommended I put him down because there weren’t, and still are not, any effective treatments or surgeries to repair the canine elbow joint. Zeus had some relief from the arthritis using laser and shockwave therapy but it was always short term. He also took Rimadyl, but I did not want him to take the pain reliever for an extended period of time do to the possible long-term side effects. I started using Droi-Kon, putting it in his food twice a day. Over the next couple of weeks, I noticed his activity level increase and he seemed to be happier and in much less pain. After about a month the difference was obvious. He showed so much improvement, I was able to train Zeus as an explosive detector K9 in the private sector. He comes to work with me every day and plays like a puppy! He is happiest when he is working, training and running after his very large tennis ball. His skill as an explosive detector K9 is amazing! I whole heartedly believe Droi-Kon helped to make this possible. Had I not rescued Zeus, he would have been put down at 5 months old, instead, he has enjoyed a happy and productive life. Thank you Droi-Kon and Summit Nutritionals International.   Debra Faiello Captain, NJSP (Retired)   Original Document > 2017 Summit Nutritionals International®...
