- Plaza de la Paz was going to be the scenery, on September 5th, for the recognition of the people of Redován and the organizations, formations and volunteers that helped during DANA
The mayor of Redován, Nely Ruiz, announced today that for health security regarding the advance of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been decided to postpone, without a date, the act of tribute to the town of Redován, awarding the Gold Medal for its action and solidarity during DANA last September, and in recognition of the different formations, security forces and volunteers who acted in the municipality during the floods.
The celebration was scheduled for next September 5th with all security measures guaranteed, but finally the decision has been made to postpone it “much to our regret, due to the recent information of the generalized increase in the province of Alicante infections caused by COVID -19, so from the government team we have decided that the most convenient thing was to wait until it’s possible to carry out this tribute in the safest way possible to avoid risks ”, the mayor reported.
This tribute was to be held in the Plaza de la Paz, where the Gold Medal would’ve been awarded to the town of Redován, the highest distinction that the City Council can grant to reward extraordinary actions or services performed for the municipality, and caused by their heroic performance and solidarity during the development of DANA. “We are saddened to communicate this postponement, since we consider that the tribute to our people is surely deserved,” said the mayor, “but we believe that we must always give priority to the health and security of our neighbors, and take measures adjusted to the situation to avoid contagion and the spread of the virus as much as possible ”.
Ruiz has expressed his desire that this tribute can be carried out “as soon as possible”, as well as “to be able to show the people of Redován the audiovisual project that we were developing to remember, always with respect, those difficult days in which its inhabitants knew how to rise to the occasion ”. This memorial video was to be made thanks to the videos and photographs that the neighbors themselves have been sending to the City Council, to which the mayor wanted to thank their collaboration.
Under normal circumstances, Redován would start his festivities in the coming days, so Nely Ruiz has taken the opportunity to call for the responsibility of citizens, especially younger people, “to follow all security measures and not skip them at no time, since containing the virus is the task of each and every one of the residents of our municipality ”. The City Council has launched a series of videos on social networks featuring queens and festive charges where responsibility is appealed and especially the use of a mask and hand hygiene.
- • The Corporation gives the green light to the Local Burning Plan, approved unanimously, which extends the restrictions to Easter and Easter
• The Consistory will send the project to the Generalitat for its final approval and to protect up to 280 hectares of mountains and its forest mass
The Redován City Council has approved the Reduced Fire Prevention Plan for the municipality during the last Extraordinary Plenary. “This is a regulation of vital importance for all municipalities that, like Redován, have forest areas in territories with a high probability of fire, such as those of the Valencian Community”, said the Councilor for Citizen Security, Adrián Ballester, and especially during the summer months, with the increased risk with rising temperatures.
In this way, the document delimits the protection zone, of approximately 280 hectares, which includes the Sierra de Redován and its forest mass, as well as the micro-reserve of flora called ‘Peñón de la Llobera’, the Sierra de Callosa as Place of Cultural Interest, and the corresponding area of the Special Bird Protection Area (ZEPA) of the Valencian Community for the southern mountains of Alicante. The area also includes as areas of special protection the recreational space of La Ermita de Redován and the municipal cemetery, as well as the homes and industrial areas near it.
This regulation also indicates the protection and prevention measures against fires that the Redován City Council will carry out in the municipal term “with the adaptation and surveillance of the paella areas in the hermitage on the days of maximum risk”, said the councilor , “In addition to carrying out scheduled clearing of the perimeter, the placement of metal containers, and ensuring the maintenance of water sources.” In the same way, public dissemination and information work will also be carried out, through posters and information brochures, as well as an informative day for neighbors and companies in the area in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development, Emergency Climate and Ecological Transition to deepen awareness and prevention against fire ”, added Ballester.
The Local Fire Prevention Plan is also accompanied by a Local Burning Plan to regulate the burning of agricultural remains on non-urban land throughout the year, indicating the space and conditions that must be met to carry out with the minimum risk of fires. Likewise, the express prohibition of the regional regulations on burning from July 1 to October 16, the City Council also extends it during Holy Week and Easter for the entire municipality of Redován.
Ballester recalled that, according to regional regulations, “to carry out any burning, a notification must be made to the City Council specifying the day, place and time it will take place, and the details of the owner of the land on which it is going to be developed, always and in the period between sunrise and noon ”, explained the councilor. The execution of the burning will also depend on the risk of fire on the chosen day, and cannot be carried out on days when the alert is level 2 or 3.
For her part, the mayor of the municipality, Nely Ruiz, has assured that the approval of this plan is “very good news”, since “our mountains and landscape are one of the great riches that Redován has available”, with what “we will always work towards any action or regulation that can ensure its protection”, she concluded.
- The detainee was carrying out dangerous maneuvers with a vehicle in the Plaza de la Paz and fled to the neighboring town after the officers stopped
- Agents of the National Police and Oriolana Local Police also participated in the persecution, who collaborated in the arrest
The Local Police of Redován has reported the arrest, last Saturday, of a minor in Orihuela, accused of a crime against road safety. The now arrested man, who was carrying out dangerous maneuvers in the Plaza de la Paz in Redován with a vehicle without the regulatory lights, fled with a companion in the passenger seat when, before the telephone warning of a neighbor, the agents appeared to control the situation.
From that moment on, a police chase began through several streets of Redován, in which the driver recklessly skipped several crossroads and stop signs and carried out various maneuvers to threaten a collision with the police vehicle. The minor continued his flight out of the municipality, at first on CV-919 and later on CV-91 in the direction of Orihuela, circulating on several occasions in the left lane and forcing drivers who came in the opposite direction to avoid him to avoid any kind of accident.
At the entrance to the town, in the Los Huertos area, the vehicle stopped abruptly, giving the impression of having broken down. After informing both the National Police Corps and the Orihuela Local Police, a patrol car of the latter tried to cut him off. It is at this time that the driver’s companion, who has not been able to be identified, got out of the vehicle and fled. After the violent struggle with an agent of the Local Police of Redován, who entered through the passenger door to proceed to arrest the minor, he got out of the vehicle to continue his flight, starting a new chase on foot which was joined by two Oriolana police officers.
The minor was attacked by the three agents inside the ‘Los Huertos’ compound, where he was reduced and arrested. Faced with the strong resistance of the detainee, both himself and one of the agents, belonging to the Redován Police Force, found themselves in need of receiving medical attention at the Álvarez de la Riva health center in Orihuela due to minor injuries. Likewise, the vehicle, owned by the father of the detainee, was transferred to the municipal depot in Callosa de Segura.
The Councilor for Citizen Security, Adrián Ballester, thanked the agents for their actions, “whose work and dedication is patent and is essential to keep the streets of Redován safe every day.” This is the third arrest made by municipal agents in the last two weeks, which “shows the professionalism of our police force, which shows evident results in the face of the reinforcement of the surveillance that has been carried out in the town during the last weeks ”.
The Redován Local Police have made a new arrest, in this case in the area known as Camino de Los Benitos, where apparently a man was trying to force the entrance of a house for occupation. The agents captured the alleged thief, who accused him of an alleged crime of robbery with force in the house he was trying to break into.
The events occurred during the afternoon of yesterday, Tuesday, when the call of a relative of the owner of the house alerted the Local Police upon hearing the blows that the detainee used to strike the door to force it open. The agents appeared at the scene, where they found the alleged perpetrator of the events trying to open the front door of the house with the help of a hammer and a chisel.
The suspect was equipped with a backpack in which, in addition to the hammer and chisel, he carried other tools, including screwdrivers and pliers. Finally, the agents proceeded to arrest the suspect, who has been charged with the crime of robbery in an attempted degree, and was placed at the disposal of the Civil Guard patrol of Callosa de Segura, who also went to the scene to proceed to the transfer of the man to the barracks after intervening the effects that he had in his power.
The Councilor for Citizen Security of the Redován City Council, Adrián Ballester, has highlighted the actions of the agents while highlighting the necessary citizen collaboration, alerting with a call of the facts, to achieve the arrest of this person. Thus, Ballester has reminded the public that before any event that may be considered criminal, it is very important to notify the Local Police at the phone number 608072253, “because the agents are prepared and have all the necessary material to deal with this type of situations ”.
At the same time, the Redován Local Police recalls that although this is an atypical summer, for the holidays it is necessary to take a series of precautions if we are going to leave our homes empty, such as checking that everything is perfectly closed or that it is not reported from vacation plans to anyone outside the family circle, at the same time asking someone you trust to empty the mailbox regularly.
- The proposal will be brought to the Plenary and the distinction will be delivered in the act of tribute that the City Council plans for next Saturday, September 5
At the proposal of the Department of Citizen Security of the City of Redován, led by Adrián Ballester, the City of Redovanense will award the Gold Medal to the citizens of the municipality for their performance and solidarity during the DANA in September. The proposal has been discussed today in an informative commission and has had the support of all political groups with a municipal presence, so it will now be raised to plenary for approval. Adrián Ballester explained that this distinction arises “due to the strength and solidarity shown by the people of Redován during an episode that has undoubtedly marked our citizens”, explained the mayor.
“There were multiple heroic displays of solidarity or merit of aid, so it is a decoration awarded by the City Council to reward extraordinary actions or services carried out in favor of the town,” said Ballester. Once the approval process has passed in plenary session, it is planned that this Gold Medal will be delivered to the town of Redován in the tribute act that the Consistory is preparing for next Saturday, September 5, and that will take place from 20:30 in the Plaza de la Paz.
Thus, “and when one year has passed since these fateful floods suffered in our municipality and also in Vega Baja”, explained the mayor of the town, Nely Ruiz, “it seemed appropriate to reward the attitude and strength of our neighbors during those hard days, in which difficult moments were lived in which the people of Rehovan knew how to rise to the occasion ”, he added.
This event will also honor the various organizations, training and volunteers, in recognition of the municipality’s aid and protection efforts during the development of DANA and in the repair work, such as the Local Police, the Civil Guard, the Unit Emergency Military (UME), National Police and Fire, or the municipal brigade.
In the same way, the City Council is preparing an audiovisual project to carry out this tribute, and in which “we also ask for citizen collaboration to collect videos and images that reflect the situation of the municipality during those days,” the councilor reported. In this way, and those who want to contribute to its preparation, may do so by sending the material by email to the address email@example.com before August 16.
The Redován Local Police arrested two people yesterday for an alleged crime of robbery with force in a poultry farm in the town. The agents received a call from the owner of the poultry farm who stated that two people had entered the house and that they had been able to retain them.
The police arrived at the compound and found one of the assailants outside the compound and another inside the holding, held by the owner of the same. The alleged thief confessed that he had entered to steal, but that he only wanted to take one or two wooden pallets to sell them later, and that he had gone with his partner, who was outside watching to take the pallets in a car.
The alleged perpetrators of the robbery were surprised by the owner of the factory when he got to work and it was when he realized that the alleged thieves had entered the farm through a hole in the fence and jumping over a small wall.
Finally, the assailants were arrested and transferred to the Callosa de Segura Civil Guard barracks for an alleged robbery of things in an attempted degree.
