Recreation and Tourism

By John Connolly, The Lifesaving Foundation, and Arne Navarra, Philippine Life Saving Society, published in Handbook on "Drowning, Prevention, Rescue, Treatment" 2nd edition (2013).

This article is especially interesting to Safe Coastal Tourism (SCT) as it expands upon the casual factors of holiday drowning.

The appeal of SCT to the lifesaving world and tourism industry is to join efforts to prevent tourists from drowning. This article refers to initiatives done in Australia, the Philippines and Thailand which proof that collaboration between the tourism industry and life-saving organizations to promote drowning prevention is possible. These initiatives should be followed worldwide.

An interesting read!
