In this case you need make sure that you have floating static routes pointing towards the ISPs (PE1/PE2) so that you can achieve failover.

If you are getting ethernet drop from both the ISP's then you need to make use of routing protocols such as EBGP to achieve failover.

Also do make sure that your central location is connected to both the ISP's and running routing protocols between them.
