If you are to apply a job in a resort or hotel in Boracay you could take pride if you were chosen to be a rescuer or a life guard.
This is if the memorandum which requires hotel and resorts to have their own trained life guard will be implemented.
This is in line with the Philippine Coastguard’s memorandum circular.
Through the public consultation that the coastguard had, Coastguard Caticlan Detachment Commander Terrence Alsosa said one of the things the circular contains is the obligation of hotels and resorts to have a lifeguard in their establishments.
Particularly those with swimming pools.
These establishments will also be obliged to have their personnel to undergo rescue training course, in connection with rescuing guest's lives and properties.
Meanwhile aside from resorts with swimming pools, also in attendance at the public consultation were sea sports operators and others with similar operations.
The said memorandum circular shall be implemented on the island if it will be approved at the earliest.
