An annual big fire drill has been held this morning at a hotel in Pattaya. The drill follows a Holiday Inn Express suffering a fire which caused 400 guests to be evacuated about a week ago.
Centra Maris Resort Jomtien has conducted the annual big fire drill for their staffers.
The fire drill is aimed to practice a fire escape and showing people how to avoid and extinguish the fire.
The hotel has also conducted a small fire drill every month during day time and night time. Hotel representatives stated to the press they practice because they want to be prepared in case there is a true emergency and to show their guests they treat safety seriously.
The fire training continues after fires have taken place at another local hotel in Pattaya.
About 400 tourists had escaped from a fire at a hotel in Pattaya in the early morning last week.
