While Phuket continues to experience a few problems over lifeguards manning the beach due to budget cuts and staffing issues their now seems to be a ray of hope.
After receiving confirmation that the International Surf Lifesaving Association (ISLA) have agreed to send 20 Humanitarian Lifeguard trainers to Phuket in November.
The trainers will come from all over the globe using their own money to fund flights and accommodation to train anyone that passes a swimming test.
Not only do they volunteer their time for free to train others to be lifeguards they also donate 30,000 baht each so lifesaving equipment can be purchased and donated to lifeguards.
Successful applicants will receive the ISLA international Lifeguard Qualification which is recognised in 24 countries around the world.
Daren Jenner the ISLA Thailand coordinator said that this will be the biggest event of its kind to be held in Phuket.
