THOSE bathing off the beaches of Velez-Malaga will be safer for longer this summer thanks to a new improved lifeguard service, which will include more staff, more equipment and more days than in the past.
Beaches Councillor Jesus Perez explained that this year the service will remain in place until September 30, and said that there will be 27 lifeguards working at all times, a number which will increase to 41 at weekends in July and August.
There will be surveillance on all the municipality’s beaches and the number of first-aid posts has increased to six, while there will be 10 surveillance towers in use at all times, with another 12 added at weekends in July and August in Chilches, Benajarafe, Valleniza, Almayate, Caleta and Lagos, the councillor explained.
The team will have use of two rescue boats, a jet ski, a four-wheel-drive vehicle, an ambulance, a quick-response vehicle and a surveillance drone.
