The mayor of Alcobaça said today he was concerned about the lack of supplies at the gas station Emergency Service Network (REPA), without fuel since Thursday, saying that it could endanger distress.
“I see with great concern that the REPA post has been out of fuel since Thursday,” he told Lusa Paulo Inácio (PSD) today, admitting he feared that “it could be a question of civil protection and relief in the county ”.
According to the mayor, “there was no supply” to the post, located at Avenida Humberto Delgado, the only REPA bomb in the city of Alcobaça, in the Leiria district, which “demonstrates that the municipality is not being met. the minimum services ”.
“Strangely, in the stations that are not part of this network, there is fuel, but in this [não exclusivo] deposits have been dry for almost a week, ”said Paulo Inácio, adding that“ if diesel fuel is not replenished and firefighters or other relief organizations need to be supplied, they may have to travel 10 or 15 kilometers to supply ”.
In the county there are two more REPA posts, all non-exclusive. Namely one at Rua Conde de Avelar, in São Martinho do Porto and another at kilometer 101 of IC2.
Paulo Inácio told Lusa that he had already conveyed “this concern to the Leiria District Operations Commander [Carlos Guerra]”Which, according to the mayor,“ was available to find out what is going on and try to expedite a solution with the leaders of the REPA ”.
Lusa unsuccessfully tried to contact the district relief officer.
On the official website of ENSE (National Entity for the Energy Sector) reported, at 18:00 on Tuesday, available fuel volumes of around 45% for diesel and 37% for gasoline at REPA stations (22 no exclusive and three exclusive) of the district of Leiria.
Dangerous goods and goods drivers are now serving the third day of an indefinite strike, which prompted the government to issue a civil requisition on Monday afternoon, alleging non-compliance with minimum services.
The strike was called by the SNMMP and the Independent Freight Drivers Union (SIMM) to claim from the National Association of Public Road Hauliers (ANTRAM) compliance with the agreement signed in May, which provides for a wage increase.
