The crew comprises 22 individuals. Lifeguard service will be provided on Formentera beaches until 31 October. The full crew will work until 30 September, before leaving eleven personnel to work between 30 September and 31 October.

The beaches division of the Consell highlighted the municipal ordinance prohibiting any type of animal, including dogs, on the beach between 9.00am and 8.00pm during the swimming season.

Between 1 May and 11 July, lifeguards logged 365 healthcare interventions and 938 warnings related to boats entering swimming areas, swimmers in boating zones and dogs in dog-free zones. There were also 32 rescues, including one involving a person who drowned to death.

Accessible and heart-healthy beaches

The beaches of Es Arenals and Es Pujols are specially adapted for swimmers with reduced mobility. The service is available when the green flag flies from 12 noon to 5.00pm. In Es Arenals, this service is available 1 May to 31 October; and in Es Pujols, from 1 June to 30 September.

In addition, all lifeguard stations are equipped with a defibrillator for possible cases of cardiorespiratory arrest.
