The Civil Protection Corps of Las Torres de Cotillas is involved in collaborative tasks during this health crisis caused by the spread of the coronavirus.
"Its members, practically all volunteers, are helping with various tasks in the municipality. Their dedication and responsibility in times as difficult as these are appreciated, a commendable task that we were already able to see in the recent DANA," says Mayor Joaquín Vela Fernández. , who remembers that since last Monday the Municipal Emergency Plan was activated, the Civil Protection work groups have been at the disposal of any municipal need.
The work began last Saturday, March 13, when the municipality's Primary Care Emergency Service (SUAP) requested a field hospital where to create a triage area for patients who would come in later days.
"The hospital and a tent were installed, which is material owned by the Civil Protection service, with the collaboration of six volunteers," says the person in charge of the body, Manuel Fernández.
In addition, during this week and by order of the Department of Social Services they have distributed food in their homes to the Torreña families attached to Cáritas.
"This has prevented these people from queuing to collect products at the headquarters of this organization," says the Councilor for Citizen Security and Civil Protection, Francisco José Caravaca Bravo.
"Eight volunteers took turns in this service, who have distributed a total of 110 lots, and next Wednesday we will collaborate with the NGO Sonrisas Solidarias in carrying out the same work," says Fernández, who states that in all these cases the greater respect for the confidentiality that both entities entail.
