Ring, don’t tweet
For the third consecutive year, the 112 emergency service in the Canary Islands will be tweeting tips on how to stay safe on the beach this summer.
Bulletins are being posted on their Twitter site of @112canarias using the hashtags of #Riesgo0 and #Playas.
The campaign is aimed at people who use the Canary beaches to show them how to protect themselves but also, if necessary , how to react to an incident.
The 112 Twitter site has proved a huge success and has more than 120,000 followers.
In addition, through the retweets, this information reaches an even wider audience with speed.
The tweets are in Spanish and English, with simple and easy tips to implement in order to continue instilling in the population the so-called culture of emergencies.
The campaign also includes links to video and the brochure “Enjoy a good beach day”, published by the Government of the Canary Islands, as well as recommendations on beach and sea activities.
It is once again being stressed to RING 112 and not to send a tweet if an emergency arises.
