Warning signs erected at Treasure Beach in St Elizabeth to enhance safety following recent drownings at the location

18 warning signs have been erected along Treasure Beach in St Elizabeth to enhance safety and promote sustainable tourism practices.

The 11 ‘caution’ and seven ‘no swimming’ signs span the Great Bay to Fort Charles area, warning beach goers of potential dangers and encouraging safer usage of the beach.

Several people have drowned at the location after venturing into areas deemed troublesome waters.

Speaking with IRIE FM news, Member of Parliament for South West St. Elizabeth, Floyd Green said the erected signs come from a partnership with the Tourism Ministry, through the Tourism Product Development Company Limited (TPDCo).

He explained that the move is part of efforts to implement the destination assurance model in Jamaican beaches.

Mr. Green noted that other steps are being undertaken to enhance safety at Treasure Beach.

He said this include, the hiring of lifeguards and the implementation of a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training programme.
