On Monday, July 4th, the Thai Garden Resort held its annual fire prevention training in cooperation with the Pattaya City Fire Department. The training was separated into two sections.
The first part took place in the morning between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. where the members of the fire department taught the employees how to correctly use the fire extinguishers the right way for different kinds of fire. The employees were trained how to avoid dangerous situations and the safe handling of dangerous equipment, such as gas bottles or electric devices. This training was supported by a PowerPoint presentation.
All staff were trained using the exciting “learning by doing” motto.
After the theory training in the morning, they started the afternoon with the actual hands-on session. The Fire Department started actual fires caused by gas and by gasoline. Huge flames and dark clouds covered the car park training area. Males and females alike had to stand the heat and attack the fire at the source with fire extinguishers to ensure they are able to handle real life situations.
At 4 p.m. the training was completed and besides soaking up a lot of helpful information and many new experiences, it was also a lot of fun for everyone.
We would like to say a special thanks to the Pattaya City Fire Department who have ensured that all of the team members of the Thai Garden Resort are well trained to assist in kind of firefighting.
