A crash course in changing the world.
One of the most important and vital locations will be Chiquihuite hill. This is one of the main telecommunication areas in Mexico City, as it houses most of the radio broadcasting towers. In the case of many emergencies, widespread power outages will be expected, and the only means of staying informed for most inhabitants of the city will be radio. It will be vital then, to divert resources into this area to keep them operating and sending vital information to everyone with access to a radio receiver.
Another vital area will be Chapultepec forest. It's enormous area and infrastructure can ensure the preservation of countless lives in the event of an emergency, and it's centric location can be easily accessed by anyone in the most densely populated section of Mexico City.
As it can be expected, a large part of the population will be in the downtown area of Mexico City in the event of a daytime catastrophe, so it is hugely important to condition two key areas for emergency response and medical attention: The Zócalo plaza and the Alameda Park, shown respectively below:
Also, due to the heavy density of the city and the lack of the open spaces required for an efficient response and survivor attention during a catastrophic event, with the help of city officials and the private industry we have reached an agreement that will bind country clubs and golf courses to allow the use of their properties to tend to survivors and provide for camping spaces for those who may now be homeless, like the Mexican Golf Club below.
Each and every location will be fitted with renewable energy devices to power lights, medical equipment, water purification services and at least one large screen TV for entertainment and news coverage. Since the structural integrity of any building cannot be guaranteed, each location will have several ready-to-deploy solar balloons to provide energy in the event of a very likely city-wide blackout.
Every location will also be ready to deploy tents and tarps to provide temporary shelter for people left homeless or afraid of going back to their homes due to structural damage, as well as prompt building of medical facilities, for which all locations will be constantly monitored for unexpired medical supplies once a year.
Many of the locations are also near water sources, however, these are heavily polluted and undrinkable. For this reason, they will all also be fitted with treatment plant-grade LifeSaver treatment units, which will also be verified for functionality during a yearly inspection.
These are just the highlights, there are many more details to be learned about our project, like new food resiliency techniques by Patricio Buenrostro, and they will all be available soon at a new website by the Ministry of Civilian Protection.
The poor response and attention from 1985 will never again be repeated. Next time disaster hits, Mexico City will be ready.
P.S. Yes, I know the mission said to use Google Maps, but I find Google Earth to be better and more versatile. :p
