Nur-Sultan preps for beach season

Daily patrols will engage 20 professional rescuers, 14 boats, 30 community lifesavers and 15 members of the civil defense staff for the season, Nur-Sultan Akimat reports on its official site. 

A recent inspection determined 23 bathing sites within the city borders. However, only the Central Beach, the Tri Peskarya and Stolichniy Dvor leisure sites are authorized beaches, according to Yessen Bayirov, Deputy Chief of the Emergency Response Department.

“Free beaches are to open on 10 sites based on the results of joint inspections with district administrations. Three of them will be located in Almaty district; Baikonyr, Yessil and Saryarka will have one, three and three respectively,” Yessen Bayirov noted.

Since May 9, the Emergency Response Department and Akimat have installed prohibition signs and information boards, surveyed the riverbeds at swimming sites, and conveyed information letters to the leisure sites and city beach owners.

During the beach season, 20 staff members, 14 boats, 30 lifesavers and 15 akimat civil defense employees will conduct daily patrols.

A large awareness campaign starts on May 25 across residential areas adjacent to water, leisure sites and unauthorized beaches.

The police, Emergency Response Department and the National Guard will follow the approved schedule of joint inspections. A patrolling map is in place with marked swimming sites, both authorized and unauthorized.

The Emergency Response Department reports 43 deaths in the city’s water area for the last three years. A third of such casualties are children from nine to fifteen. The authority reports rescuing 50 people, including 14 children, during the same period.
