What to do in an emergency?

 

Adeje is inviting members of the public to suggest additional measures in emergency planning

The Adeje council and the Cruz Roja are organising a series of days to elaborate a programme to deal with security, emergencies and catastrophes, and they are inviting members of the public to add to the plan. The final date for suggestions is December 15th and people are invited to send their proposals to escuela@adeje.es. The final version of the plan will be discussed during March 2018.

According to councillor Zebenzui Chinea Linares, “we want to make sure these working days have a participative element, to encourage and include ideas from local residents”.

The programme has three pillars already established. In the first place the response of the co-ordinated emergency team is in place, dealing with emergencies at local, national or international levels where relevant, with a panel of experienced personnel. The second point refers to analysis of the situation and the development of technologies in the field of emergency response and the third pillar examines the strengths and weaknesses of both public and private safety bodies and measures.

From these bases the programme is being developed and expanded and the councillor is making a special appeal to experts in the sector to help in the development and deployment of the plan to allow it meet properly the needs of any real emergency.

The ideas sent will be evaluated by the technical team responsible, and during January and February the final programme proposals will be evaluated.
