Three jet skis have been handed over to the Lifeguard Services Division by the National Security Ministry.
According to the Ministry, there have been meeting over the past several months aimed at resolving issues affecting lifeguards.
The lifeguards’ calls for more resources heightened after two persons drowned over this year’s Easter long-weekend.
The Ministry says the newly acquired jet skis will be used at the beach facilities in Mayaro, Maracas and Las Cuevas.
Beaches are currently closed to the public until May 23rd 2021.
