Puerto Vallarta Beefs Up Security Precautions for Easter Holiday Weeks

With over a thousand events happening around the town of Puerto Vallarta during Semana Santa and Semana Pascua (Holy Week and Easter Week), various agencies of the three levels of Government are keeping in constant communication.

With the participation of the Navy, Army, State Civil Protection, State Ministry of Health and Municipal Offices, these organizations have banded together for the safety of our locals and visitors during these two weeks of high tourism and activities.

The town normally quiets down after the end of Semana Pascua, which this year is Sunday, April 8.

The safety operation consists of adding extra lifeguards to the beach areas, patrols and seven boats to monitor the maritime area.

Approximately a thousand public services personnel are around town including the State and Municipal Police, Transit, State and Municipal Civil Protection, Firefighters, Army, Navy and Red Cross.

Sergio Ramírez, Subdirector of Firefighters and Civil Protection encourages our citizens and tourists to stay within the laws and avoid alcohol abuse.

Additional checkpoints have been added to the highways and roads, with monitoring in the tourist strip and the Malecon.

Two modules have been installed on the Malecon (at 31 de Octubre and Lazaro Cardenas Park) which are staffed by the Municipal Council of Disabled Persons (COMUDIS) and personnel from the System for Integral Family Development (DIF). They are available to help with any needed emergencies including first aid, dehydration, and missing minors.
