Almuñécar and La Herradura have got their beaches sorted out and manned, thanks to a budget of 206,000 euros.
The town’s new Councillor for Citizen Safety, Paco Robles, presented the 2019 campaign to the press, with its 31 lifeguards, four of whom are qualified to pilot rescue-craft (jet skis & RIBs).
There is also a designated ambulance, three craft; one on Velilla, one of San Cristóbal and one for La Herradura bay. Just in case you decide to have a heart attack, there are four defibrillators (Playas Velilla, Puerta de Mar, San Cristóbal and Herradura).
As for communications, there are 14 walkie-talkies and one mobile phone for each post.
Well, now you know, you’re safe on Almuñécar beaches from everything except from noisy neighbours that just have to insist on setting down their towels right next to yours…
