Greece’s Coast Guard Announced Fines for Sea Rescues if Bad Weather Warning Ignored

Greek authorities are putting into effect a law under which people using recreational watercraft at sea who disregard severe weather warnings and then trigger search and rescue operations will be liable for incurred costs and a fine.

Greece’s coast guard made the announcement after a spate of incidents in which coast guard and navy helicopters and vessels were scrambled to rescue people who had headed out to sea for fun despite very strong winds and rough seas, and after days of public severe weather warnings.

Greeks fork out too much for health

Greeks spend disproportionately more in health costs compared to people in other member-countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), recent data suggest.

According to a publication by the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (SEV) titled “Health in Greece,” which is in turn based on data from the OECD’s “Health at a Glance” report, Greeks cover 35 percent of their health costs out of their own pockets, compared to an OECD member-country average of 21 percent.
