Sanidad activates summer heatwave plan

The Canarian health department, Sanidad, has activated its Plan de Actuaciones Preventivas de los Efectos del Exceso de Temperaturas sobre la Salud, a preventative action plan to counter the effects of heat throughout the summer. The operation will be in action until 15 September. The plan specifies and coordinates regional, insular and local government measures where public health is at risk, and sets up the system of alerts.



Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
