Formentera extremely cautious ahead of rain and wind prevsions

The Departments of Interior and Island Services of the Consell de Formentera report that emergency safety measures have been activated in the run-up to the expected landfall of a rain- and windstorm that Spain's Directorate General for Emergencies has ranked level one on its severity index.

The Consell fire brigade is now on “pre-alert”, with four officers and reinforcements standing by. Local law enforcement have called in extra shifts in the coming days based on the weather forecast.

Clearing sewage lines
The highway brigade has been overseeing efforts to clear storm-water drains, sewage pipes and roadside ditches. Should they become necessary, water pumps are also on hand.

Aemet said the island could see hourly precipitation of 50 litres per square metre—up to one hundred in the space of 12 hours— and pointed to gusts of 80km/hour and waves up to 3 metres high. Formentera is expected to be on orange alert until Wednesday at midnight.

Outdoor cultural programming for the day, like Cinema a la fresca, is on standby pending developments.

Council announces openings to bolster vehicle regulation and other summer services

foto consell premsaThe Formentera Council's human resources department reports that islanders keen to add muscle to Formentera's fledgeling vehicle regulation service and nautical sports centre (known as CENF for Centre d'Esports Nàutics de Formentera) will get their chance in a few days.

In an effort to maximise the apparatus that will be charged with tracking the vehicles that enter, circulate and park on the island, the administration wants to enhance the current three-person team by adding a university degree-holding project operative. The individual selected for the position will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day progress of the project as well as coordination with organisations and businesses affected by the measure. The Council will also seek to charge a technical specialist with coordination of the project's database and an administrative assistant to stay on top of new registrations.

The administration is additionally looking for an individual with an advanced degree and knowledge of sailing to work within the soon-to-be opened CENF in la Savina, not to mention an IT specialist with an advanced degree in this area.

Descriptions of the positions will be published in the coming days—CiF officials say before Easter—to the public sector section of the SOIB, the job seekers' service in the Balearics. The application process is digitised and can be completed online.

New pool of candidates

In preparation for the summer season, between Easter and May the Formentera Council will build a pool of representatives to meet staffing needs at la Mola lighthouse, CENF and the island's “Tourism Info Sites” (Oficines d'Informació Turística), in addition to a catalogue of pre-screened blue zone parking attendants, inspectors, summer school staff and cleaning personnel.
