PHUKET: Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup has confirmed to The Phuket News that lifeguards at Patong Beach will be hired year round, full time from Oct 1.

 

The news comes amid concerns that the contract with Phuket Lifeguard Service (PLS) to provide lifeguards on the beach is to expire on Sept 30, just before the deadly month of October, when rip currents and strong surf brought on by the southwest monsoon become especially dangerous.

 

“From Oct 1, we will hire each lifeguard individually. We will be hiring the same number of lifeguards, the same ones that are protecting tourists at our beach now,” she said.
