Estepona’s Fire Department has finally been able to move into their new station five years after it was completed.
Speaking at an officially ceremony celebrating the patron saint of firefighters, Mayor José Maria Garcia Urbano stated that this had been one of the new administration’s priorities but it had been a bigger task than first anticipated. Although the construction had been completed. five years of neglect and vandalism had meant the spending of over 50,000 euros to repair and replace damaged and stolen fixtures and fitting as well as major repairs to the roof.
The Mayor went on to say that now the task is to ensure that the local fireservice receives all the material support they require to enable them to provide the level of service needed for Estepona. To this end all the emergency vehicles have now been restored to full service, including the three damaged and one being held for non-payment of repair bills that the current administration discovered on taking up the reins of government last year.
