Pattaya officials inspected the nightlife venues on Walking Street to ensure the operators complied with the fire prevention measures.
Mr. Pornchai Sang-iad, Permanent Secretary of Banglamung district, and relevant officials screened various entertainment venues on Walking Street in South Pattaya late last night, September 2nd, to remind the operators about the fire prevention measures.
The inspection focused on fire escapes and fire extinguishers, Pornchai said. However, the official found that some venues still had unready fire escapes that were blocked and difficult to access. “The venues must have a clear path leading to the fire escape,” Pornchai said before ordering the operators to clear the obstructions from the fire escape.
Moreover, the official found that certain venues were too close to one another, which forced them to have only the front door as a mere passage. Pornchai said he would consult with Pattaya Mayor Poramase Ngampiches to tackle this issue in the near future.
The names of the offending venues were not given.
