Phuket trains to protect Kathu area in case of disasterOn 4th July 2013 at Patong City Municipality Office, Phuket Governor – Maitree Intusut together with  Deputy Director of the Phuket Security Operation Command – Gp.Capt.Kritsada Ratanasupa, Head of Phuket’s Office for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation – Sun Jantarawong, gathered to monitor and track the availability of local government organizations in the Kathu District area including Patong City, Kathu City and OrBorTor Kamala in order to prepare for a disaster such as fire, flood, landslide, earthquake or tsunami.

Khun Maitree said “Because this is the monsoon season, and the rain has been falling consistently, we need to practice and prepare for different disasters to reduce the impact and losses of life and property of locals and tourists. It’s important to continually be prepared, in particular the need to provide practical training – not only for evacuations, but also communications between relevant authorities, who must all be heading in the same direction and taking immediate action.”
