2014 report listing SIRESP comms system weaknesses ignored by government
An external, highly confidential audit of the SIRESP communication system was commissioned by the previous government under the then Prime Minister Pedro Passos Coelho. The report recommended urgent improvements to the national emergency service communications system but nothing was done.
The confidential audit of SIRESP was requested in 2014 by the then Minister of Internal Administration, Miguel Macedo (pictured left) and in August that year the highly critical report was issued proposing short and medium-term measures that needed urgently to be implemented.
