A GROUP of volunteers in Andalucia are working to help find illegal wells similar to the one little Julen fell down in Totalan.
Around 1,800 people from the Civil Protection of the province of Malaga and an additional 5,000 from the rest of Andalucia, have volunteered to help look for illegal wells.
The search has been classified as an ‘emergency’ movement that involves the 112 Emergency services and the general public.
The ATPCA, Association of Civil Protection Technicians of Andalucia, have activated a platform to report illegal well sightings and their exact location, urging citizens to do so at the following link: http://atpca.es/ES/ATPCA13.html
“If the well you are going to inform us of is an imminent danger that could put lives at risk, immediately call the 112 Andalucia Emergencies and inform them of the dangerous situation,” the ATPCA says on its website.
The platform also states that any citizen that detects an illegal well without the necessary security measures should also upload a horizontal image of the well, this way authorities can record a graphic copy of the existence of the well that could cause a potential danger to the public.
