€264,000 investment in life-saving fire equipment


BENALMADENA’S firefighters have been given a new, light-weight fire vehicle, capable of holding 1,750 litres of water.

The town’s Mayor, Victor Navas, explained, “it is the first vehicle that the town has acquired for our firefighters in 12 years, and has the latest advances in fire prevention and extinction.”

He added, “since our arrival in government we have considered it essential to provide firefighters with the appropriate emergency equipment for their work, something which we hope will culminate in the construction of the new fire station.”

Navas also announced further investments will follow in the coming months with the acquisition of two new 4×4 vehicles.

Commenting on the new vehicle, Javier Martin, Councillor for Security, explained, “it is a light vehicle, ideal for use on urban streets.” He added the vehicle is equipped with the latest technology in fire-fighting, and works at low pressure.

With this latest acquisition, the Benalmadena Fire Department’s mobile fleet now has three auto-pump vehicles, a stairlift, a salvage vehicle and two light vehicles for the transport of personnel.

This purchase is in addition to the recent incorporation of new fire extinguishing systems, “showing the council’s firm commitment to provide new technical equipment and boost the mobile fleet of both firefighters and local police,” according to the council.
