La Flora Tsunami Rescue Team 2012
The last tsunami that ravaged Patong Beach & other southern provinces of Thailand brought great loss in terms of lives, economics, and the environment. There are lessons that can be learnt so that communities will be better prepared and always alert whatever natural disasters may occur in the future.
Hotels that are just one step to the sand are at risk from any natural disaster. After the 2006 Tsunami, La Flora Resort Patong enforced “Tsunami Warning & Preparedness Training”, an intensive course to get everyone prepared for a Tsunami, which is mandatory for all La Flora staff members to attend. La Flora has also formed a 9 member team, “La Flora Rescue Team”, which is a team made up of qualified and well-trained staff volunteers, who are there to help and guide guests and staff of La Flora Resort Patong, should a warning be issued.
Saving Money…Saving Lives…
There are so many ways to save money, and even more ways to save lives. One natural calamity is the “Rain”, which causes thousands of car/motorcycle accidents year in year out. Rain is more dangerous in dry weather and many people forget how to drive in it. Therefore, drivers need to understand exactly how rain can cause an automobile accident.
Rain can make it more difficult to stay on a roadway, stop or avoid a collision with other vehicles, more so when driving downhill. This is even more the case when it first starts raining, as roads are most slippery at the beginning of a rainstorm. When the road first gets wet, oil rises from the road and creates a greasy surface. If you can’t stop your vehicle in time, that’s when accidents happened. During rain storms, it can be difficult for drivers to see other cars. When rain is combined with dirty water being kicked up from the road by other vehicles, windshields become dirty very quickly. This is why it is always important to make sure that your vehicle has functional windshield wipers. Due to the above, the management team of La Flora ensures all staff members use La Flora bus when arriving to and departing from work during rainy season. Besides, La Flora’s drivers are very patient and their focus is to pick our staff up from and drop them off to their homes “safe and sound”.
