Central Festival Phuket together with Phuket Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department, want more safety and realistic fire and rescue drills to prepare rescue staff to assist tourists.
On May 17th, “Rescue Fire Drill Event” was held at Lanlom 1st floor, Central Festival Phuket. Miss Wilaiporn Pitimanaaree, Central Festival Phuket General Manager, was joined at the event by Mr Panat Pookpho (Central Phuket Store General Manager), Mr Sun Jantarawong (Head of Phuket’s Office for Disaster Prevention and Mitigation) and a number of rescue teams, hospital teams and several Central Festival staff.
Miss Wilaiporn Pitimanaaree said “We’ve had an earthquake in Phuket already, which caused locals and tourists a great deal of panic. Central Festival Phuket is visited by thousands of tourists per day, and we must act urgently to plan rescue and fire drills to ensure, should an incident occur, that our shopping centre will be in control of the situation and our staff has knowledge to assist in such an event. This drill was held to make sure we are able to help and ensure the safety of all visitors to Central Festival Phuket.”
