More space for the Civil Protection in Mequinenza and more money for his residence. The Mequinenza City Council has carried out two recent operations: on the one hand, the expansion of the garage space for vehicles at the base of the Pago Cinca Civil Protection Volunteer Group in the city. The performance, carried out by Construcciones Ibarz, involved an investment of €35,997.50. It was funded by the Unified Support Plan (PLUS 2022) of the Diputación de Zaragoza (DPZ).
This action responds to one of the requests of the now extinct Mekinins Civil Protection Volunteers Association. This became part of the regional federation by Decree 204/2017 of December 19 of the Government of Aragon which reorganized it. With this, duplication of means was avoided and resources were consolidated. At the same time, coverage of the entire territory of Aragon is guaranteed.
The works focused on the ground floor of the building. The parking area has been expanded and two changing rooms have been created. Plus a shower area and storage. It is also planned to carry out carpentry work on the doors and the association has undertaken, through a subsidy from the Government of Aragon, to paint the façade of the building whose first floor contains a meeting room and coordination of operations that can be used if necessary.
