Work Under Way At Nerja Fire Station

Latest News Thursday 29th of August 2013

Work is under way at the temporary fire station site on the east side of Nerja, on the roundabout that goes down to Burriana beach. The €73,000 project will double the size of the fire station and also improve the station’s practice area.

During the improvement works the personnel will be based at a nearby sports centre, rather than move to the station at Velez-Malaga, so that they are on hand during the summer season, when the population of Nerja doubles.

A new Nerja fire station is planned to be built, but according to Abdeslam Lucena president of the Provincial Fire Consortium, the €5.8 million project is stalled due to lack of funds from the regional government of Andalucia.
