Nan holds disaster drill


NAN, 25 May 2012 – Nan residents have participated in a disaster drill to prepare themselves in cases of flood and mudslides. 

As Nan is one of the provinces frequently hit by flashfloods and mudslides during the rainy season, the provincial authorities and residents yesterday held a disaster drill to prepare people on how to deal with an emergency. At the same time, the activity also educates people about the nature of mudslides and flashfloods, so that they will be able to evacuate in time and effectively when the real event occurs.
