The Generalitat of Catalonia, through the Directorate General of Civil Protection (DGPC), has today launched a campaign to Salou to sensitize the population about the risks of the beaches and stressed the need to observe a minimum self-protection measures . The DGPC distributed 10,000 posters and billboards these days, under the slogans on the beach looks can be deceiving and at the beach, put all the senses, seek the attention of users of Catalan beaches on two fundamental aspects to improve security on the coast: the meaning of the color of the flags (green bathroom free; yellow: caution, red: prohibited bath) and remember the phone call to 112 emergency only, which is free and can call from where there is mobile coverage, although not to the operator that it has contracted.  The campaign recently added to the initiative from the Department of Beaches in the City of Salou in order to combat antisocial behavior that occurs on the beach. Thus, through the ordinance of civility and coexistence exists a section dealing with the prohibition of the bathroom with red flag and includes the amendment incorporated in Article 9.6 ..

It prohibits the bathroom as well as leisure or recreational activities, such as renting jet skis, skates, etc., if the red flag is placed. People who bathe disregarding this prohibition do so at your own risk.
