The Local Police Service of Huércal-Overa has today been integrated into the technological platform of Emergencias 112 Andalucía, in a ceremony attended by the delegate of the Andalusian Government in the province, Maribel Sánchez Torregrosa, and the mayor of the municipality, Domingo Fernández.
In the last ten days the local police of El Ejido and Mojácar have also joined the 112 service. The delegate pointed out that “this integration implies a qualitative leap in the management of emergency situations and emergencies that occur in these three towns and, therefore, the optimisation and improvement of response times to these types of events”.
“From now on”, the delegate stressed, “we offer a population of almost 100,000 inhabitants between the three towns a real and effective benefit in the event of an emergency, because we offer greater reliability of the information transmitted, as well as the ease of management and use of the data”.
Sánchez Torregrosa also emphasised the advantage of working within the 112 system for the municipal emergency services, “because the police officers of El Ejido, Huércal-Overa and Mojácar already consult in real time all the information generated by the incidents in which they are going to intervene”, while he thanked “all the 112 workers in Almería, 24 hours a day, every day of the year, for the work they do to permanently guarantee effective coordination with all the city’s operational services”.
For his part, the mayor of Huércal-Overa, Domingo Fernández, said that “it is good news that the integration system is already working in our municipality, which improves the reaction time to an emergency for both the Local Police and the Civil Protection services”.
