The councillor said that “the service has always been provided with pre-built modules that have been rented every season, however, the City Council for Beaches considers that it necessary to invest in rather better facilities in order to improve the image of the beaches, as well as the working conditions of the staff of the First Aid and Rescue personnel who provide their services to the public”.

Both the specifications and the design of these modules, which are made of wood and will consist of one floor, have been designed by Council staff. They will have all the necessary facilities to ensure proper services, such as cabinets, speakers, sinks, stretchers, etc.

The huts are divided into two sections: a public area for the provision of first aid and a private area, for storage for the staff that provide the service. The private area will also have a toilet.

“It’s a very simple and modern design and we hope it will please everyone” said Ms Boné
