As part of the celebration of the National Firefighter's Day, in coordination with the municipal government headed by Javier Pelayo Mendez and the Municipal Civil Protection of Firefighters directed by Sergio Ramirez Lopez, it was announced that resources of nearly 4.5 million pesos have already been authorized for installing fully equipped lifeguard towers on nine beaches in the municipality.

The installation of these lifeguard towers will make Puerto Vallarta the first destination in Mexico and Latin America to have this type of infrastructure.

The municipal official explained that the project is already authorized by the Federal Maritime Terrestrial Zone (ZOFEMAT) and is an important management tool which will provide safer beaches for visitors, making Puerto Vallarta the example in this area.

In his message about the elements of Civil Protection, Fire and Lifeguard, Lopez recalled that upon his arrival in this corporation he found valuable human capital and through committed work have finally received the recognition they deserve.

"For over 20 years, the institution has remained afloat thanks to the work of all of you that have led to where we are right now. I know that this work is important and believe me I value all efforts and want to thank you," said Ramirez Lopez.

He recognized the unconditional support of Mayor Javier Pelayo Mendez, who has always sought to provide and manage the resources needed to strengthen the services provided by the corporation to the public, including providing that equity for care is not interrupted "and that I thank and salute our Mayor on behalf of all my colleagues."

He also invited members to continue to strive and fight for the common interests of the corporation "which is to preserve, protect and monitor to ensure the lives of people."

As part of the celebration, all officers were honored for their commitment, dedication and discipline shown at all times.
