 THE Plenary Session of the Town Hall of Torremolinos on Monday has approved the installation of defibrillators in the schools of the municipality. In addition, with the approval of this proposal, there will be annual training sessions on first aid, Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and use of these devices for teachers, staff and students.

Councillor for Public Administration, Carmen García, stressed that this initiative is perfectly timed with another to arrange a map of the location of defibrillators in public spaces, with the objective that all residents and tourists know the situation of the devices themselves in case their use is necessary to save a life.
