Red Cross applicants put through their paces on the Arenal


OVER THE bank holiday weekend, the provincial office of the Red Cross conducted recruitment tests in Javea on the Arenal beach, with over 100 candidates competing for a place on the team responsible for monitoring the beaches of the province.

All candidates had to have completed first aid and water rescue training of no less than 100 hours prior to submitting their applications.

Candidates first faced a theory exam – testing their knowledge both across health care and aquatic rescue procedures.

They then faced a practical exam, with a ‘victim’ in respiratory cardiopulmonary arrest before competing in a 400 metres swim race.
