Emergency plan activated! (Tenerife mainly)
#1
Radio Sintonia:

The Government of the Canary Islands activates an emergency plan in the face of the arrival of pellets in the archipelago.

The General Directorate of Emergencies of the Government of the Canary Islands, in application of the Territorial Emergency Plan of Civil Protection of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands (PLATECA), and following the criteria of Civil Protection, has declared at 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 10, the situation of Pre-alert in the Canary Islands due to the specific episode of arrival of plastic granules (pellets) on the beach of Bajamar, in the municipality of San Cristóbal de La Laguna, which were detected around 10:00 a.m. by the Beach Lifeguard Service.



This preventive activation is carried out in order to make available the emergency resources of the Government of the Canary Islands and guarantee the coordination of the intervening services from 1-1-2 Canarias, which guarantee the correct monitoring of the situation.

In this sense, an initial surveillance system has been established on the north coast of Tenerife with the participation of a Maritime Rescue vessel, with the aim of locating and collecting this type of material on the high seas and preventing its arrival on the coast.

Likewise, the General Directorate of Emergencies has transferred that this surveillance must also be carried out by land through the Island Councils, City Councils and beach surveillance and lifeguard services in other areas of the Archipelago in case they are detected in other parts of the islands, although for the moment there is no record of their arrival in other areas of the coast of the Archipelago.

Experts from the University of La Laguna and the Spanish Institute of Oceanography consulted by the Government of the Canary Islands have ruled out the possibility that the plastic granules (pellets) located on the north coast of Tenerife come from the spill of the Toconao ship, as reported at a press conference by Marcos Lorenzo, Deputy Minister of Territorial Cohesion and Water.
