SPECIAL FOREST MONITORING SERVICE ACTIVATED FOR EASTER
The Arenal beach will also have a lifeguard service during the holidays

Wednesday 28th March 2018

JAVEA NEWS | Easter 2018 - Forest Monitoring Service

The Department of Public Safety and Emergency Prevention in Xàbia has activated a special forest monitoring service for the Easter holidays to observe the forestry areas in case of fire. As temperatures begin to rise and the rainy weather begins to subside, these areas become more at risk from such an emergency and the municipality is always keen to avoid a repeat of such disasters as the Granadella fire of September 2016 and the inferno that destroyed much of La Plana exactly two years earlier.

Since Monday a dedicated patrol from the Policía Local has been monitoring those areas at greatest risk and from Thursday 29th March a volunteer team from the Protección Civil will deploy with a water pump to provide surveillance and a rapid response service between 10.00am and 9.00pm during the Easter holidays. The operation aims to provide and strengthen fire prevention objectives as well as a rapid response in case of emergencies in collaboration with the permanent fire service.

However, despite the deployment of this special surveillance and response service, the Policía Local is calling on all residents and visitors to the town to give particular due care and attention to the risks of fire in the municipality. Only this week two municipal rubbish collection bins were damaged by fire after smoldering coals from barbeques were deposited in them and the emergency services have advised that fire and pyrotechnic material should not be lit in risk areas and that the recommendations or instructions of those responsible for forest surveillance in public areas be followed without question.

The popular sandy beach of the Arenal will also see the deployment of a special safety surveillance team over the Easter holidays, coordinated by the Policía Local, in which there will be three lifeguards, an ambulance and launch deployed between 11.00am and 7.00pm between Thursday 29th March and Monday 2nd April (Easter) and then over the following weekend of San Vicente, Saturday 7th April and Sunday 8th April.

The Arenal zone, the most popular area for visitors during this holiday period, will also benefit from the opening of the auxiliary health centre in Avenida de Paris which will be open between 10.00am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday and then 10.00am to 3.00pm on Saturday. Outside of these hours, those requiring medical assistance should go to Urgencias at the Centro de Salud in the Plaza de la Constitución in the town.


Xàbia activa un operativo de vigilancia forestal especial para Semana Santa
El Arenal contará con servicio de socorristas durante estos días

La concejalía de Seguridad Ciudadana y Prevención de Emergencias de Xàbia ha preparado un dispositivo de vigilancia forestal especial para estas fiestas de pascua. Desde ayer lunes, la Policía Local dedica una patrulla específica a controlar las zonas de más riesgo y a partir del jueves santo, 29 de marzo, se pone en marcha una dotación de Protección Civil dotada de una motobomba que realizará labores de vigilancia de 10 a 21 horas todos los días festivos. El operativo servirá para reforzar la prevención y la capacidad de respuesta rápida en caso de emergencias, y está planificado en coordinación con el parque comarcal de bomberos.

No obstante, desde la Policía Local se hace un llamamiento a los ciudadanos para que extremen la prudencia, sobre todo después de que ayer lunes se registraran dos incendios en contenedores por el vertido de brasas de barbacoa todavía encendidas. También se pide que no enciendan fuego o material pirotécnico en espacios de riesgo  y que se atiendan las recomendaciones o indicaciones de los encargados de la vigilancia forestal en las zonas públicas o de ocio.

Otro dispositivo de seguridad específico para Semana Santa es el de seguridad, coordinado por la Policía Local, y el de vigilancia en la playa del Arenal, que en horario de 11 a 19 horas cuenta con tres socorristas, una ambulancia y una embarcación los días 29, 30 y 31 de marzo, 1 y 2 de abril (Semana Santa) y 7 y 8 de abril (fin de semana de San Vicente).

Otro servicio para atender la demanda turística de esta Semana Santa y Pascua es el que presta el área sanitaria en el Arenal, donde ha abierto este fin de semana en consultorio auxiliar en la Avenida de París nº 18. El horario de atención al público es de lunes a viernes (de 10 a 18 horas) y los sábados de 10 a 15 horas. Fuera de este horario, las Urgencias se atenderán en el centro de salud de la Plaça de la Constitució de Xàbia.
