Formentera lifeguard crew huddles for group photo

foto-grup-socorristes-2019v3-1President Alejandra Ferrer and interior councillor Josep Marí stood in plaça de la Constitució today for a group photo with the Consell de Formentera lifeguards of 2019.

From 15 June to 15 September —the high season— the 23-person corps of lifeguards will stand guard over beaches at ses Illetes, Cala Saona, Llevant, Arenals and es Pujols.

The team slims down to 15 from the 15th to the 30th of September, and drops down to 10 from 30 September to 31 October. Lifeguard and rescue service is maintained on the island thanks to Consell de Formentera funding from 1 May to 31 October.

Accessible, 'heart safe' beaches
Arenals and es Pujols have been fitted for adapted swim for individuals with reduced mobility. The service can be requested —only when the green flag is raised— from 12 noon to 5.00pm.

Every lifeguard station on the island is equipped with a defibrillator to assist in cases of cardiac and pulmonary arrest.
