Color Coded MAP of Embassies in Iran Helping Injured

with 10 comments

This is a link  to a map that provides the location of every embassy in Tehran:http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=116894734857323306892.00046ccb858387ddf2a3d

This is a link to a text file of the embassies and whether or not they take injured: http://bit.ly/2rYIbt

The map and text file are  color coded. Below is the description:

Best info we have – please update if you know more. GREEN: OPEN (embassy statement open)

YELLOW: no statement, indication yes RED: NO HELP (embassy can’t help injured)

BLUE: UNKNOWN

Assume Basij are blocking all embassies and use CAUTION. Also many Embassies deny that they are helping injured or even are able to do so. Hard to get straight facts. Furthermore most embassies won’t have sophisticated medical equipment on site. In case of life threathening injury please go to the nearest hospital. In addition latest info suggests embassy staffs are being expelled from country soon. check too with https://eldercato.wordpress.com/2009/06/20/list-and-status-of-injured-accepting-embassies-in-tehran/ Please help in further enhancing this map by checking the information and by providing additional information (other Embassies, capacity of Embassies …)
