BANGKOK, 11 May 2012 The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has launched a campaign encouraging safety in schools in preparation for the opening of school session on May 23rd.
Bangkok Governor MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra said the BMA has enforced urgent safety measures in all schools; the measures include the inspection of CCTVs and electricity, particularly in schools that were flooded last year. He said security guards must be instructed to strictly monitor school premises for safety. All the schools under the BMA’s jurisdiction are advised to hold Big Cleaning Day on May 21-22.
The City Law Enforcement Department has coordinated with the metropolitan police to facilitate traffic in front of all schools. Traffic lights and signs around schools have been checked for their readiness. Piers in Bangkok have also been inspected to ensure their integrity and safety standards. The Traffic and Transportation Department is planning to provide safety helmets to students who ride motorcycles and bicycles.
