Peñasco strengthens equipment to monitor beaches

As part of strategies to reopen Puerto Peñasco’s beaches, this past week two jet skis were added to the city’s vehicle pool to strengthen beach monitoring efforts in caring for the health of visitors and residents alike.

Joined by members from the Federal Maritime Land Zone (ZOFEMAT), Tourist Auxiliary Unit, Civil Protection and Fire Department, as well as the local Red Cross, and on behalf of Mayor Kiko Munro, City Secretary Terencio Gutiérrez Valenzuela unveiled this third delivery of equipment made possible through ZOFEMAT concession payments in the municipality.

The equipment, consisting of two 2019 SeeDoo Spark Rotax 900 ACE jet skis, will be for rescue service and operation efforts of ZOFEMAT, the Tourist Auxiliary Unit, and the office of Civil Protection and Fire Department. Additional material yet to be delivered consists of three 4×4 pickups and a hydraulic lifeguard tower to be set up in the Mirador on the beach in front of Manny’s, which recently achieved Blue Flag certification.

Presentation of the jet skis to the city’s ongoing efforts to add to its vehicle safety pool comes about two weeks after the delivery of two new patrol cars to the Municipal Police – one of which is to be used by the Municipal Youth Patrol – along with equipment for the ZOFEMAT office consisting of three all-terrain RZRs, 10 radios, five 4-wheelers, a backhoe and an outrigger with hydraulic platform.
