Securing a dam: the Department’s rant

#GARD –In a letter sent to Christophe Béchu, Minister of Ecological Transition and Territorial Cohesion, Françoise Laurent-Perrigot, president of the Gard department, calls for strong actions from the State for security work to be carried out on the Sainte-Cécile-d’Andorge flood control dam. Built in 1967 to deal with the devastating floods of the Gardon, like those of 1958, the Sainte-Cécile structure has been under close surveillance for several years. This dam is made up of an embankment of earth and rocks. If an exceptional flood were to pass above its summit, the entire building could be swept away. The president deplores the administrative burdens which are delaying the work while "the populations are worried and the risk is real".

The nursing home at home with the territorial resource center

#PYRÉNÉES-ORIENTALES – Going to a nursing home or placing a loved one there is a difficult decision. Seniors have a very difficult time having to leave their home with a direct impact on their health. Today, an alternative solution exists with the territorial resource center (CRT). In the Pyrénées-Orientales, two nursing homes were selected by the ARS, in Prades and Pia."By 2026, four CTRs will be deployed in the P-O (33 in total in Occitanie)", explains Franck Nivaud, departmental director of the’ ARS. Concretely, the resource centers have a prevention mission and above all they allow reinforced support at home for elderly people, with a mobile team supported by a nursing home.

40 ravers in Rieussec and the fear of a lively spring

Teknival, rave and other free parties are in fact prohibited in the nearby Aude until June 9 by the prefecture.
