The crew is also performing forest fire drills, including one last weekend near Sa Roqueta in Es Pujols. The efforts are meant to build fire crews' skills responding to real accidents, handling hose lines, communicating and operating vehicle pumps, not to mention highlight the functions of each team member. Three firefighters and a service chief participated in exercises that involved two fire engines and a light vehicle.

Josep Marí, councillor of interior, explained that the fire department is asking islanders and visitors alike to "take all the necessary precautions given an already high fire risk this season which the heat wave has pushed to new heights".

Formentera presents comments on Maritime Transport Decree

The Consell de Formentera has submitted comments regarding the draft decree laying down special arrangements for the provision of maritime transport between the Balearic Islands. The comments highlight three key areas:

-Guaranteeing minimum service on the regular Formentera-Eivissa line, particularly early-bird and late-night service. The Consell has pushed for set time slots, which are envisioned in the Maritime Transport Law, but not the Decree. The Consell's comments included a proposal for minimum time slots, as well as arguments in favour of minimum connections for freight transport.

-Avoiding overlapping and/or excessive service in summer on the regular Formentera-Eivissa line. The Consell requests that environmental sustainability studies be carried out during the first two years of the Decree's application and that the solutions be applied in the third year.

-The Consell requests that excursions between Eivissa and Formentera guarantee universal accessibility as established by legislation in the Balearic Islands. A grace period could be envisioned.

Consell asks Balearic office of consumer affairs and industry for solutions to "deficient" local distribution of butane and propane cylinders

Ana Juan, president of the Consell de Formentera and councillor of commerce, has asked the regional offices of consumer affairs and industry to take the necessary steps to rectify problems affecting the supply of butane cylinders on Formentera.

In two letters to the Balearic directors general, President Juan highlighted "the numerous complaints received from the people of Formentera about Repsol Butano's failure to properly deliver butane and propane cylinders to households and businesses on the island".

"According to the information we have received, home deliveries face delays of several weeks. This is totally unacceptable, and represents a serious prejudice to our people. One can see how an ostensibly essential service is not carried out with the necessary frequency to meet our basic needs", said the president.
