Starting tomorrow, with the entry into the second fortnight of September, the assistance, rescue, lifeguard and land medical transport service on the beaches and their surroundings enters the mid-season. As the councilor explained, Tony Miragall, this September the daily lifeguard service will continue in the Arenal Beach while in Gravel and granadella It will be provided only on weekends. The hours of this service will be from 11:00 a.m. to 19:00 p.m. on the three beaches, and will continue on the Playa del Arenal on specific days -weekends and holidays- until October 12.
This service consists of various aid stations on the beaches, which report any dangerous situation, ensure the safety of users and assist anyone in need, transferring them to the nearest hospital if necessary.
The beaches of the Xàbia coast are a natural environment that receives a large influx of people, especially during the summer months. This makes prevention, rescue and first aid in them a fundamental task to solve critical situations that pose a serious and immediate danger to people's lives.
Miragall explained that the use of the beaches is more seasonally adjusted than ever, and for this reason, since the last contract was put out to tender, the periods and frequencies in which it is active have increased.
