Default Beach Patrols

Hello BHPians,

The RLSS-I (Rashtriya Life Saving Society - India) is keen on setting
up beach patrols along the Indian Coast line. The pilot project is
starting from GOA.

The idea is to have volunteers with 4x4s patrol the beaches with Trained First-Aiders and Life-Savers.

All 4WDrivers (especially in along the coastline & to start with GOA), interested in participating in this programme please respond to this thread with their email ids ASAP.

Regards,

Arka

In GOA?? No vehicles are allowed on the beach as per government norms there (pollution, safety and other issues).

Goa had got some horses to do the patrolling but that was a major failure.

I am from Goa and know a lot of folks who would be interested. I will speak to them and revert back to you.

Goans dont prefer to see 2 or 4 wheelers on their beachs, they could face a lot of opposition. But since its a Government initiative it may get implemented. Just my 2 cents.

This is a Govt. of INDIA, Ministry of Tourism initiative so, permission to bonafide participants & Volunteers will not be a problem.

thats good news for 4x4 off-roadies. but the driver has to get trained in life saving courses and be a part of the team rather than being just the driver!

I was in Goa this December, and I've seen these beach patrols.
If you swim a bit towards the deeper side of the sea, these lifeguards come to you in their water jet scooters and ask you to come back towards the shore.

Here's a pic of the dudes in action

Nice looking Jeeps! Goas coastline just got better. Arka, are you volunteering in any future events? If so, I am equally certain that they will have a lot to learn from you.
