| José López: "Can you imagine a 'Safe Destination' without having updated the prevention and extinction of fires? Well, don't imagine, that's how we are in Cartagena because the PP prefers smoke "| Five years have passed without an agreement between the City Council and the Port Authority for the prevention and extinction of fires in the port area.
It should be remembered that during the Mayor's Office of MC the new agreement was listed for signing, something that was not possible when it was paralyzed by Mayor Ana Belén Castejón and the regional PP, despite the numerous requirements made by the Cartagena formation. The last of these initiatives was the one that was brought to the Plenary session of November last year in which the City Council was urged to resume contact with the Port Authority for the signing of this collaboration agreement, an issue that will be reiterated during the Plenary session that will be held on the 30th of this month. In line with this situation, the municipal spokesman for MC, José López, has regretted that the PP continues to "stay in constant campaign against the public money of the Port of Cartagena", adding that "among the most striking shortcomings in these plans that add 200 million euros, there is nothing, there is the 'Safe Destination' ". "Can you imagine a safe destination without having updated the prevention and extinction of fires? Well, do not imagine, this is how we are in Cartagena because the PP prefers smoke," denounced the mayor. López recalled that "we have been demanding for five years that the Port Authority assume the training of our firefighters to act safely in the port environment, a training that they have not received for more than five years.
Cartagena is at risk, the bulk of two refineries they generate, and the PP doesn't care.
" The spokesman recalled that "Antonio Sevilla showed interest in signing this agreement, but postponed the signing and I am sure it was because they did not let him.
They should not understand that the agreement we negotiated was and is advantageous for Cartagena and port activity, not for MC.
" Delving into this issue, he assured that "that million euros committed is very necessary to train our firefighters and guarantee the safety of Cartagena and visitors in the port environment." For all this, he has advanced that "we will take this matter to the Plenary so that Castejón and Arroyo, who voted against in December 2019 and continue to go to the councils of the Port Authority for a walk, will be portrayed again." "Meanwhile, they trust luck to the safety of a port and we already know that they are somewhat ashes," José López concluded.
