LEAFLETS are being distributed in Mijas streets affected by road-works to let residents know where they can find help.
The leaflet printed by the council informs residents that they can get in touch with the Local Police force and Civil Protection if they need assistance to get in or out of their homes.
The measure has been put in place mainly to ensure elderly or disabled residents of the streets undergoing re-modelling work do not end up stranded at home.
People that spot any breakages or problems with the works are also encouraged to get in touch and let the authorities know.
“We understand that the work can cause problems for the people of Mijas, and the council wants to minimise risks and disruption. Therefore we want to remind everyone that the police and civil protection services are on call 24 hours per day and will visit immediately to solve any problems,” Local Police councillor Juan Carlos Gonzalez explained.
The numbers to call for help are 952 460 808 and 952 460 909.
“Civil Protection officers will assist people that need help getting in or out, while Local Police officers will be keeping an eye out for problems, especially on rainy days,” Gonzalez said.
