RP Energy sponsors first-ever Zambales LifeGuard Challenge

Posted on: June 28th, 2013 by admin


Lifeguards compete in the recently held first-ever RP Energy Zambales Lifeguard Challenge.

Iba, Zambales—In line with the campaign to promote a “Drown-Free Zambales,” some 80 lifeguards from various parts of the country competed in the first-ever RP Energy Zambales Lifeguard Challenge held at Iba, Zambales recently.

Organized by the Zambales Resort Owners Association (ZAMROA) and Redondo Peninsula Energy Inc. (RP Energy) in partnership with the provincial government of Zambales, the event featured 17 life-saving events aimed at testing the lifesaving techniques of the competing lifeguards while promoting safety.

According to tournament organizer Roger Bound, the owner of Rama International Beach Resort, “Zambales is a coastal province and a tourist destination. We must give importance to water safety, both in pools and beaches”.

ZAMROA has been at the forefront of the campaign to improve safety in the various resorts in the province offering trainings and seminars in water safety for its members and the public.

Victor Chan, RP Energy corporate social responsibility (CSR) officer, said efforts must be exerted to make the beaches of Zambales safe for tourists and residents alike.

“We believe in the vision of ZAMROA to make Zambales a leader in aquatic safety. To achieve this, we also need to develop the skills of our local lifesavers. RP Energy believes that by supporting programs that reinforce safety among the beach resorts in Zambales, we will also be able to enhance tourism in the province” Chan said.

Teams from Boracay, Zambales, and the National Capital Region contended in the tough events that included a beach flag race, board rescue, and a 1-kilometer beach run.

Team ZAMBA took home the over-all team championship with Romelyn Limbag of PLS-Iba winnig the beach flag race- women’s division.

The Lifeguard Challenge, according to Bound, “also shows that Zambales has the technical capacity to host the Philippine Lifesaving Sports National Championships in 2014.”

The national championship is a qualifying event for the World Lifesaving Championships that will be held in Germany this year.

Last year, the Philippines competed for the first time in the world championship of Surf Life Saving in Adelaide, Australia.

Athletes competed in ten separate disciplines – swimming, simulated emergency rescue, ironman/ironwoman, surf-ski, board, beach sprints, beach flags, surf boards and inflatable rescue boat.
