Perhaps not surprisingly, one of the greatest challenges in Abaco post-Dorian has been communications.

The storm destroyed the vast majority of telephone poles and lines in the central and north regions. And while telecommunications were re-established within a few months of the storm, very few landlines are yet restored.

Day-to-day, tracking down phone numbers can be frustrating. But when it comes to a police or medical emergency, the result of not having access to timely help could be tragic.  

Here’s a first pass at a post-Dorian Emergency Contacts list for Abaco. If you’ve got corrections or additions to make, please let me know.

For future reference, this list can be accessed from the Featured Posts & Pages section at the top of the right-hand column on the front page, and in the Quick Info menu that appears at the bottom of each page.
