On May 24, chief of Phuket International Airport for operations and maintenance Manat Sotharat presided over the opening of the training course entitled "First Aid Review" conducted at the training room of the Fire and Rescue Department of Phuket International Airport.

The seminar was held to “review knowledge and build understanding of first aid protocols to help injured patients in the right way and with proper efficiency”, said the Phuket office of the Airports of Thailand (AoT Phuket).

On the next day, May 25, Phuket International Airport General Manager Monchai Tanode opened another seminar, this time on “reporting and risk assessment for security personnel”. The training was conducted to “enhance skills, knowledge and understanding about the methods and processes of risk assessment to identify factors danger and assess safety risks effectively”, AoT Phuket explained.

The culmination of the training program is scheduled to take place on May 31, when Phuket International Airport fire teams and emergency-response personnel will take part in a field drill including a simulated oil spill and fire.

The emergency exercise is set to be held from 10am through noon at the fire pit next to Phuket International Airport runway 27.

There will be a lot of smoke during the training. We apologize for any inconvenience,” AoT Phuket said in a notice on Facebook.

No drills in the terminals have been announced so far. In previous years the exercises normally did not include any training in the airport’s buildings and never affected flights.

Always a good idea to conduct regular training drills and keep emergency team skills fresh in their minds. My last job we did weekly fire drills iin full kit including face masks, air tanks, etc, often done in the middle of the night. When the alarm goes off you rush to your stations. You can never train for emergencies too much!!
