(5/5/2014)

The Bali Post reports that the Badung Regency is seeking to expand the beaches supervised by trained lifeguards in an effort to reduce the number of swimming accidents resulting in the loss of human life.

While a number of beaches are guarded by life saving stations and lifeguards (balawista) who save hundreds of people each year, other areas such as Tegalwangi Beach, Perenan Beach, Batu Belig Beach and beaches in Canggu remain unguarded.

The coordinator of lifeguard services for the Badung regency, Ketut Ipel, said on Thursday, May 1, 2014, the increasing number of visitors of Bali’s southern beaches and a failure to be able to respond to swimming emergencies in some regions necessitates the need for more lifeguard stations and lifeguards to man them.

Said Ipel: “Along beaches that are guarded there are few drowning deaths. Meanwhile deaths by drowning are a much more frequent occurrence along unguarded stretches of shoreline."

The Head of the Regencies Tourism Object Division from the Badung Regencies Tourism Service, Made Suastika , said his office continues to study the supply and assignment of lifeguards and will soon decide where new posts will be installed.

Presently, Bali has 23 lifesaving posts on Kuta Beach, Nusa Dua Beach, Uluwatu Beach, Kedonganan Beach and Jimbaran Beach. Badung employs 159 lifeguards.
