New fire station in Güímar is a top priority
A new fire station in Güímar and greater transparency will be two of the main targets of Tenerife’s Fire Consortium in 2020.
Its most recent meeeting, chaired by the insular director of security of the Cabildo de Tenerife, Cayetano Silva, approved the lines of action for this coming year.
The opening of the Güímar Fire Station is one of the most important actions and the project already has a budget.
“It will have a permanent staff of four firefighters 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. All this will serve to improve response times in the Güímar Valley area and, in this way, strengthen the safety of the whole of the island of Tenerife,” said Cayetano Silva.
Three to four months of processing is envisaged, which is the normal time, and another six for the construction of the park, so it is hoped to have the new station up and running in one year.
Another of the relevant issues for this year is the implementation of the institutional transparency model.
“It is essential that the procedures and actions be transferred to the rest of the citizens in a clear, truthful and accessible manner, which will result in the creation of an environment of trust and security, ” said the insular director.
