ALMUÑECAR’S fire brigade took to the streets on Sunday evening, thanking residents for their solidarity and good conduct during lockdown.
“We have received so many demonstrations of solidarity from members of the public and local business that we wanted to say thank you,” said Almuñecar’s fire chief Jose Luis Varela.
The caravan of firefighters’ vehicles drove with blaring sirens through the central streets of Almuñecar and La Herradura, stopping at the Carrera de la Concepcion and Plaza de la Independencia for a minute’s silence.
They were honouring those who passed away alone during quarantine, unaccompanied by their families to bid them farewell, explained Almuñecar’s Public Safety councillor, Francisco Robles Rivas.
One of the fire engines had the word Gracias written on its roof so that residents could see it from balconies and windows as the firefighters drove through the town.
