The new point in Cape Greco

Three new rescue points have been constructed in well-visited areas of Cyprus by the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre (JRCC) and Cyta, the JRCC announced on Tuesday.

The new rescue points have been placed at Cape Greco, the pier at the old Limassol port, and at the Bania beach in Paphos.

Each one includes a circular lifebuoy attached to a line, placed in a hard case, for immediate rescue of a person in danger.

JRCC said that the buoy is activated automatically, by telephone and informing the Operations Centre of JRCC and at the same time, through a camera installed in the case that transmits an image from the point, in real time.

The need to create the three points was based on JRCC statistics, which demonstrate their high risk, as well as on the results of a pilot operation of a rescue point in Cape Greco.

JRCC thanked Cyta for their support, which they said would significantly contribute to saving lives.
