GEORGE TOWN: Lifeguards gave demonstrations of first aid techniques at the Tanjung Bungah beach front recently.
Volunteers from the Life Saving Society of Malaysia performed basic first aid and sea rescue methods used in different emergency scenarios at the beach in front of the Penang Swimming Club.
The lifesaving demonstration was held to encourage more people to volunteer as life guards at public and private venues.
Society secretary Geh Thuan Tek said the precautionary measures adopted to ward off potential sea intruders in sports competition was to install jelly fish nets.
"We want to ensure that participants are not exposed to jelly fish stings," Geh said.
