    Default US Ebbassy advisory 3-19-09

    Dear Wardens,

    I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your Semana Santa holiday.

    I just wanted to let you know that you should feel free to contact us
    directly via email or telephone if you should hear of any U.S. citizen
    who has had their passport lost or stolen and needs an emergency
    replacement. While our normal American Citizens Services (ACS) hours are 1:00
    to 3:00 PM and we cannot print passports on the weekends or on
    holidays, we are always happy to help in the morning of any regular work day
    with an emergency passport case. Please just send to us the U.S.
    citizens' name and date of birth and general time in the morning when they
    can be at the Embassy (we start at 7:30 AM) -- it's best to send us this
    info by email. We'll put the person's name on a special list for
    coming into the Embassy during non-ACS hours.

    Also, if you should come across U.S. citizens who have been crime
    victims here in Nicaragua, please encourage them to report the crime to us
    at ACS.Managua@state.gov.

    Hope you're all well.

    Thanks for all of your support and help.

    Regards,

    Lara

    WARDEN MESSAGE


    Safety Precautions during Semana Santa

    This message is being issued to advise American citizens to exercise
    extra caution over the Semana Santa (Holy Week) holiday next week.
    This is a local religious holiday where thousands of people leave Managua
    and go to nearby beaches and other tourist sites across Nicaragua.
    During Semana Santa you can expect police checkpoints on all major roads
    and intersections. Traffic is heavy especially on the Friday and
    Saturday before Semana Santa (March 14 and 15) and the following Sunday
    (March 23).

    Americans are urged to obey all traffic laws and stay within posted
    speed limits. The U.S. Embassy reminds Americans that driving under the
    influence of alcohol is illegal and a prosecutable offense. Defensive
    driving is also highly recommended. Travel only during daylight hours.
    Roads outside Managua are always dangerous at night because of
    pedestrian traffic hazards and the presence of negligent or drunk drivers.

    The U.S. Embassy recommends that adults supervise their children at all
    times while in or near water. Many of Nicaragua's best-known resorts
    do not employ lifeguards to supervise swimmers. The Nicaraguan Pacific
    Coast is generally thought to be one of the most treacherous in the
    world and is not guarded by emergency rescue or medical services.

    Finally, remember to use your common sense in guarding your property
    and person. This is the high season for petty thefts and other types of
    minor crimes. These crimes include, but are not limited to, assaults
    by intoxicated people at bars, verbal assaults of a sexual nature, and
    other events of this nature. Keep your eyes open and be aware of your
    surroundings at all times.

    The U.S. Embassy wishes you all a fun and safe vacation. Be careful
    and enjoy your vacation!

    The U.S. Embassy in Managua is located at Km 5 ½ C. Sur Managua,
    Nicaragua. The U.S. Embassy in Managua can be reached 24/7 at
    011-505-252-7100. For emergencies (deaths, arrests, etc.) after hours, U.S.
    citizens can call this phone number and ask for the Embassy Duty Officer. The
    ACS unit is also available by email at ACS.Managua@state.gov
    <mailto:ACS.Managua@state.gov> .

    General information regarding consular services is available by calling
    011-505-252-7888. Non-emergency services for U.S. citizens are
    available Monday through Friday, 1:00 to 3:00 PM, except on Nicaraguan and
    U.S. holidays.

    U.S. citizens are urged to register and update their contact
    information at the following website:
    https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui

    Talking The warden

    Quote Originally Posted by Dr. Demento;

    Didn't you know Uncle Sam is our "warden?" I get all sorts of interesting "warden warnings" like the following from the US embassy (sound familiar?):
    "Warden Message-Driving SafetyWarden Message - Driving Safety
    This Warden Message is to advise Americans of a carjacking incident that occurred near the Yosemite expat housing area on Sunday afternoon, January 27. The Chinese police are investigating. The incident occurred when a Chinese national exited her car after being struck from behind. Three assailants forced her back into the vehicle, which they commandeered and drove off. The woman was later released without having suffered serious physical injury. We take this opportunity to remind the American community to review their safety and security procedures when driving.
    Americans are advised to
    Keep a cell phone and charger in your car at all times.
    In the event of an accident call the Police at 110.
    Keep your car in good repair; the gas tank should be at least 1/2 full at all times.
    Use gas stations that are well lit and busy.
    Use well-traveled, well-lit roads whenever possible.
    Keep your doors locked while driving.
    At traffic lights, leave yourself room to maneuver.
    Keep your car in gear when you stop at a traffic signal.
    Park on well-lit streets with plenty of pedestrian traffic.
    Whenever possible, do not park at a location where you have to surrender your keys. Never surrender the keys to your residence to attendants or valets; keep vehicle and residence keys on separate chains.
    Place valuables or removable items in your trunk.
    When planning vacations, travel or making large purchases don't discuss how much cash you have or how long you will be gone."

    A better one was the following which came several weeks after the onset of cold weather (and after it had already been on TV and in the papers)!
    "Warden Message: Severe Winter Weather
    U.S. citizens are advised that severe winter weather has affected Eastern, Central, and some areas of Southwest China. Snow and ice storms have caused widespread road and rail closures and many flights have been cancelled or delayed. Travelers are experiencing long delays and transportation of food and other supplies has been temporarily stopped. U.S. citizens are encouraged to monitor news and weather reports before traveling to or in China. Even areas of China outside of those receiving heavy snow are affected because of transportation disruptions during this busiest travel season of the year leading up to the celebration of the Lunar New Year next week."
