Laguna Phuket conducts tsunami saftey drill for 700 staff | Thaiger

PHUKET: Laguna Resorts and Hotels management team yesterday launched a mass tsunami evacuation drill code-named “Safe Haven”, with approximately seven hundred associates from Laguna Phuket’s collection of deluxe hotels participating.

After a series of mass briefings were given to associates and all hotel guests were notified, the precisely-choreographed, mass drill was rolled out at 2pm, starting with communication checks, followed by associates assembling and evacuating on-foot to a designated safe area.

Yesterday’s resort-wide practice is the third drill this year, following the first in January and another in June, to keep associates aware of the threat of a tsunami and be prepared for a real crisis.

“Our management and associates walked over a kilometer from their respective areas to the emergency assembly point. In an actual tsunami crisis, this preparation will help to ensure our guests’ and associates’ safety,” said Niyom Tassaneetipagorn, Laguna Phuket’s senior assistant vice president of corporate affairs.

“The rain stopped in time for us. We had about 700 participants efficiently reach the safe area. By 2:45pm we ended the drill and resumed normal operations.”
