phuketNiwit Aroonrat, a Vice Governor of Phuket, presided over a meeting to discuss about the 2010 tsunami disaster evacuation drill preparation in the areas where public disaster warning systems are installed. Those attending  the meeting were San Chantawong – Head of Office of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Phuket, Taisika Praisa-ngob – the President of Phuket Red Cross, plus related government and private organizations.

San said that the evacuation drill would be held on September 13th 2010 from 09.30 – 10.30 a.m. in the area of 19 tsunami warning systems around Phuket. Loma Park in Patong would be the area of the main drill.

There would also be public announcements informing tourists not to be panic during the drill. The evacuation signs and the warning sounds of the warning systems would be fixed in order to make the drill efficient.
