Javea. Tuesday, 3rd April 2012.

The Local Assembly of the Spanish Red Cross in Javea has signed the contract to provide the services for life-guarding, assistance, rescue, first aid and medical transport by land on the beaches of Javea for the next two seasons, including summer and Easter. Starting this Thursday and throughout the Easter holidays, the Arenal beach will offer lifeguard services, and in the summer all the rescue services will be deployed to the Grava, Benissero, Arenal, Barraca and Granadella beaches.

The contract, endorsed by the Local Executive Board this week, was awarded for 335,709 Euros (VAT included) after a public tender process that began in January this year. The contract is renewable.
The agreement signed between the municipality and the contractor includes improvements in material and number of hours, as well as services such as beach campaigns aimed at promoting health, and leisure activities for seniors and children. Attention has also been guaranteed for special-needs users requiring assistance with bathing or those at risk of becoming lost or disoriented.

The Red Cross will also work with the Town Hall of Javea to provide other services on the beach such as security, cleaning, buoy marking, inspection, monitoring, environmental reporting or reporting on dangerous areas for swimming.

The signing of the contract took place on Tuesday morning. Representing the Town Hall was the Councillor for Finance and Contracting, Oscar Antón, while the Red Cross was represented by its president, Jose Luis Domenech.
