People can soon experience swimming in the city's beaches without the fear of getting drowned as the Mumbai Fire Brigade have proposed to the civic body to demarcate swimming and non-swimming zones for swimmers at the beaches.

"We are mulling to demarcate swimming and non-swimming zones for swimmers at the city’s beaches. We are in the process of mapping out safety and non-safety zones. This would surely avert incidents of drowning,” Chief Fire Officer Uday Tatkare told the news agency.

On the lines of Goa, the Mumbai Fire Brigade department is taking help of beach safety association and the institute of water sports, Goa, who are working together on this project.

"For this we require couple of equipments like watch towers, boats, safety jackets, neon signs boards and red flags. Lifeguards will also be stationed at beaches. Once all these equipments are procured, the project will be implemented soon," Tatkare said.
