Unmanned firefighting machines deployed at Chiang Mai Zoo as temperatures rise


CHIANG MAI- The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) Region 10 has delivered unmanned firefighting machines to Chiang Mai Zoo to spray water and provide some relief from the hot weather for both animals and zoo visitors alike. 

Chiang Mai Zoo Director Nipon Wichairat welcomed DDPM Region 10 Director Komson Suwanampha, who arrived with officials to provide assistance to the zoo amid rising temperatures.

The machines are spraying water to keep the animals, trees and the air inside the zoo at comfortable temperatures throughout the day, especially as the zoo sees more visitors during school holidays.

The water sprinklers will be turned on every Sunday, when there is a large crowd, to ensure the well-being of both animals and visitors until the temperatures and smog situation improve.
