The International Red Cross is a wonderful operation.
I have never had a calamity where I would have been in need of their assistance, but it is a good feeling to know that they would be there if one were to need some help.
The Cruz Roja Española has an Islas Baleares branch with some 17,043 helpers all over Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera. Most of them serve on a voluntary basis. In Mallorca, there are posts in Palma, Inca, Manacor, Alcúdia, Andratx, Capdepera, Felanitx and Sóller. Luckily, there are First Aid stations also on some of the beaches, like the one shown here in Ciudad Jardín (Ciutat Jardí). However, these Red Cross beach posts are open only during the Summer period, from May until September. Sounds reasonable to me.
