BENIDORM is piloting a new security system in the form of an app for mobile devices.
The app, designed for smart phones and tablets, centres on an alert system and allows the visualisation and permanent control of information between the parties involved in any security set-up.
If plans go ahead to implement the app, the management and dissemination of real time notifications and alerts will be centrally administered, for example, by the local police control centre with access granted to officers, the fire service and the ambulance service.
The app, developed by Invat.tur and the company Notico Safe, is set to prove especially popular at events that concentrate important groups of people. It was first tested during the celebration of the fancy dress that gathered 40,000 people on 18 November.
With safety being of increasing importance to travelers, Benidorm is further pioneering itself as a top holiday destination, with great efforts being made in technological innovation, especially in the provision of security.
