Grenada: The Ministry of Tourism, Civil Aviation, Climate Resilience and the Environment expresses commendation to Grenada Lifeguards on the excellent service it is providing at Grand Anse and Bathway beaches.
Special recognition must be given to lifeguard Andrew Fleming, attached to Bathway Beach, for saving the life of 75-year-old Randolph Alexander of Mt Rose, St Parick, who encountered difficulties while swimming at Bathway on the morning of Saturday, May 14, 2022.
The Ministry recognises that there have been other incidents where the work of lifeguards has been instrumental in preserving lives and, as such, acknowledges the invaluable efforts of all.
The Ministry wants to place on record that since the lifeguard service was outsourced in January 2020 to Grenada Lifeguards, its Director, Deb Eastwood, has conducted extensive training of the lifeguards on both Grand Anse and Bathway beaches.
A lifeguard tower was recently erected at Bathway, and both teams are well equipped to perform their duties efficiently.
There is also a more visible presence of lifeguards on both beaches, which gives beachgoers a greater sense of security.
Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Climate Change and the Environment Clarice Modeste Curwen is pleased with the improvement in safety measures at the beaches and the lives saved thus far.
The Ministry of Tourism takes the opportunity to thank Grenada Lifeguards for the important and excellent service it is providing and assures the public that it plans to extend the service to more beaches.
