This morning, the Alfa9 medical helicopter from the Generalitat Valenciana made a reconnaissance landing at the helipad located in the Pou de Moro area of Xàbia.

Up to now, this platform has only been used by helicopters engaged in fire and rescue operations in the area, but now it is being adapted to be used as a useful resource for medical emergencies.

The exercise, in which officers from the local police and an ambulance team participated, served to evaluate the conditions of the helipad and identify any improvements which are necessary to adapt it for medical emergencies.
