The dangers of the strong waves and rip currents are announced by many agencies time and again at this time of year, but seemingly falling on deaf ears, with lifeguards at beaches along the coast repeatedly reporting incidents of beach-goers ignoring lifeguards’ warnings.
To this, The Phuket News asks our readers, “What do you think is the best way to prevent drownings at Phuket beaches during the southwest monsoon?”
Responses available are:
- More and better-equipped lifeguards
- Improved safety campaigns, including more warning signs and mandatory warning pamphlets in hotel rooms and at the airport
- Compulsory surf danger education by all tour companies selling tours to Phuket at this time of year
- Compulsory surf safety education for all children in Phuket
- All of the above
- None, enough warning is already provided
Please note that respondents can choose multiple options in this poll.
