Formentera forces of order up their game on public safety

curs-tedax-formentera1The TEDAX unit of the Civil Guard facilitated a training course for the emergency response workers of the island this morning. The session took place at Formentera Local Police station and saw the attendance of officers and members of island law enforcement, Civil Protection, local Civil Guard, Formentera firefighters as well as lifeguard and rescue services and other individuals.

The TEDAX special officers gave participants an overview of response strategies in situations where public safety might be at risk or rescue missions involving micro-explosions to reach hard to access sites. The TEDAX unit of the Civil Guard are specialists in defusing explosive devices.

Participants of the training session also reviewed common interventions on Eivissa and Formentera in recent years, discussing past Civil Guard finds like explosives or navigational flares dragged by currents and washed up on the shoreline.

The day was also attended by CiF president's office chief Bartomeu Escandell, who praised such efforts as key to local emergency response training, and saluted the collaboration of law enforcement forces in “making Formentera a safer place”.
