LOPBURI,(NNT) – The Thai Fire and Rescue Academy has collaborated with the National Institute for Emergency Medicine on a reforestation operation and a rescue exercise in Lopburi province.
The two organizations chartered a small aircraft to Khao Tapao to disperse over two million seeds of wild trees. Aerial seeding is often used when the terrain is inaccessible. The mission was joined by Lopburi Governor Panu Yamsri.
The two agencies also co-organized an rescue exercise for local emergency workers. The five-day training was led by the Adviser to the National Safety Council of Thailand, Chatchay Thaikla and featured more than 50 veteran emergency medical technicians and paramedics, who educated participants on how to deal with different life-threatening situations
