Clarksville Community comes Together to Help Families in Puerto Rico Communicate

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – Since disaster struck Puerto Rico at the end of September, there are still families who have been unable to communicate with their loved ones and determine if they are safe or need help.  

Police Chaplain/Reverend/Dr. Modesto Martinez recognized the need for something to be done to help overcome the lack of viable communication in Puerto Rico. The destruction of cell towers during the hurricane made cell phone communication extremely limited and sporadic, especially in remote locations, so other methods would need to be used.
