The Diana Garden Resort practiced how to prevent and respond to fires during an annual training exercise.
General Manager Thanthep Bunkaew led the Sept. 13 drill at the Pattaya hotel with officials from the Pattaya Disaster Prevention and Mitigation Department.
Ministry of Interior regulations require that businesses must organize training for at least 40 percent of employees to understand fire prevention and mitigation procedures.

Nine Disaster Prevention and Mitigation officers educated hotel staff on different kinds of fires caused by various fuels, prevention and extinguishing, as well as fire escape and using chemical tanks to fight fires.
Thanthep said he hopes employees who passed the training will become a force for the hotel in coordinating with officers if an accident occurs or can extinguish a fire themselves.
