Re: Explosion at Vila do Bispo wind farm highlights “huge security failings,” says fire chief

Dear Editor,

There’s definitely something fishy about this whole wind farm business. How can the fire fighters have no number to contact when an accident occurs with the turbines, and not really know who’s in charge of the wind farm?

It’s this kind of dubious activity that proves Portugal is in many ways a corrupt country.

There has to be someone who takes responsibility in these situations, especially if the fire department itself is alerting that there are huge security failings.

I guess the only time something will truly be done is when someone is seriously hurt. It seems that’s what it takes for problems to be solved here.
