This training program is called “Tourists Safety Training 2017”, and it aims to equip national park officers with skills to carry out emergency rescues on land and water.
Sirinath National Park is the fifth national park in the country to carry out the formal training, explained Department of National Parks Wildlife and Plant Conservation (DNP) Director Thanya Netithammakul. Tourism Minister Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong and Natural Resources and Environment Minister Gen Surasak Kanjanarat were also present.

DNP Chief Thanya said, “The Department of National Parks Wildlife and Plant Conservation has 154 natural tourism destinations in Thailand. We have a high potential as a base to support and develop long-term tourism, which provides good benefit for local businesses and the national economy. The Minister of Natural Resources and Environment sees the importance of tourists’ safety.”

Other similar rescue training projects were carried out at Namtok Phlio National Park in Chanthaburi and Sai Yok National Park in Kanchanburi in November last year, at Doi Inthanon National Park in Chiang Mai in December and at Khao Yai National Park in Nakhon Rachasima in May this year.

As part of the proceedings yesterday, Deputy PM Gen Thanasak handed out certificates to 14 officers who completed the training. Chief Thanya also asked tourists to strictly follow the rules at each national park for their own safety.
