CALPE lifeguards are preparing for the start of the season, with service expected to be provided from 13th – 17th April, coinciding with Easter and then resumed from 1st June – 15th October.
Rescue workers from EULEN S.A., a company awarded the contract on the beaches of Calpe, started a training course at the beginning of March that will last the next few weeks and includes swimming and open water practices.
The councillor of the beaches, Jan Van Parijs, participated in the beginning of the course and encouraged the first responders to take advantage of the training days in order to provide the best service.
The council of Calpe is keen to ensure special attention is paid to the cleanliness and safety of its beaches and coves. They are therefore not only providing a comprehensive rescue service this summer, with personnel trained to act in emergency situations both in the sand and at sea, but have also promised surveillance will be provided by the local police of the seafront near the beaches, including a boat that runs along the coast to prevent any boat or jet ski access to the bathing area and ensuring general security along the coast.
