Catastrophe simulation in Marbella

Marbella's beaches: just one scene of the simulation.

The Mayor of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz, has complimented the coordination of the various emergency services during the simulated catastrophe exercises in Marbella. The catastrophe simulated was a tornado and more than 500 people took part in the exercise which was organised by the University of Malaga.


The mayor has recognised that this collaboration is essential in any operation and she was pleased to see it working so well within the framework of a rescue situation.

Muñoz went on to thank Malaga University for their imagination in inventing the situation to be overcome by the various services.

Jesus Miranda, professor of security and catastrophes at the university, underscored the fact that these types of exercise had to be well planned in order to keep the various services at peak performance.

The Marbella simulation was slightly different from others in as much as it included participation by robots and drones, as well as all the usual services, in the exercises of searching for accident victims and finding bodies underwater.

The exercises were considered a success by all those who took part in them.
