Tétéou, a tip to help your children find their way on the beach

The Cannes Town Hall, in partnership with the Cannes Civil Defence, has set up an effective and fun system for children on the beaches of Cannes.

The concept : giant and distinct figurines have been placed at regular intervals between the different beaches in Cannes.
When arriving at the beach, parents can go to the first aid posts and kiosks near where they are set up and collect a bracelet for their children.
This bracelet designates the figure where the child should go if he or she gets lost.
The adults and rescuers who help the child can then quickly take him or her to his or her relatives.
A useful device that brings more security to parents of young children.
