On-going second phase of Rescue Plan on beaches (15/06/2009)

The Mayor, Pilar Barreiro, accompanied by Councillor for Citizen Security, Javier Herrero, and the Director General of Security, Carlos Nieto, presented this morning in the port of Cartagena the display device within the Civil Protection and Rescue Plan beaches Surveillance this summer, plan enters its second phase today officially launched, although it has been running since this weekend due to the large influx of people who visited us as a bridge in some regions.

This means that from today, fifteen beaches have ongoing monitoring with 55 responders and 19 vehicles, seven of them water.

This will keep the Civil Protection effective until July 15, beginning in the third phase of the plan with twenty-two lifeguards and 77 persons engaged in rescue.

According to Pilar Barreiro, novelty to highlight this year is that we have grown in human and material resources, so that very few municipalities can provide a monitoring service on the beaches as we give ourselves, although it is true that we have many miles of coastline and with the addition that is discontinuous, making it difficult to control, is more complex and costly and makes us work harder.

The Civil Protection service work during the summer on our beaches and not up volunteers, but has professionalized the staff going to be hired by the city after going through a selection process that ended last May.

Remember that, in addition to lifeguards at our beaches will also be patterns of vessels and watercraft and ambulance drivers.

In this regard, Carlos Nieto recalled the consolidation of a new service in the region that was launched last year as a pilot, we make our own medical transportation by ambulance to the emergency center, which downloaded the Service Murciano of Health, which already has a lot of work in summer in La Manga, so long as the intervention does not require a specialized ambulance we make it.
