The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) held a disaster management exercise for earthquake and collapsed buildings and as Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activity, Ocean Network Express (ONE) contributed to the exercise by providing 4 containers to help simulate the collapse of a 3-story building, by corresponding to the request from BMA.
The exercise demonstrated the steps that need to be taken by responders when a building collapse. This includes establishing an incident command centre, how to treat victims, how to fight fires in high-rise buildings and what to do if there’s a chemical leak. These drills could be invaluable in the future for many departments such as Office of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation, Medical Service Office, Department of Public Works and 130 people from other related external departments.
ONE recognizes the importance of preparation for such disastrous events and provided the containers as props for this simulated exercise. As a token of their gratitude, Mr. Sakonthee Patthippayakul lieutenant governor of BMA awarded a ceremonial clock to Mr. Surasak Thienbunlertrat Director of Ocean Network Express (Thailand) Ltd.
This donation was just one of the many CSR initiatives that ONE is undertaking. The company is planning to continuously be involved in further CSR activities in the future.
