Disasters prevention event and safety & environmental studies for children
ROHM Integrated Systems (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (or so called RIST) has been holding the"Red Bear Survival Camp," which is to share survival tips and skills with the children while having fun activities for the past 3 consecutive years.
In Thailand, we experienced flood disaster frequently every year, therefore we believ that it's necessary to raise awareness and gain knowledge on disaster mitigation.
During workshop, we led 60 fifth-graders from elementary school to experience refuge life by teaching them some basic survival skills using any item that is available around them to protect themselves during the disaster scene. These skills for example include: turning empty plastic bottles into life vest, making boots from garbage bags, the correct way of using smoke mask, warning whistle, and first-aid box, and etc.
In addition, at RIST, we also provided environmental protection and safety studies within the company to deepen their knowledge in environment and safety fields.
Participated children have commented that, they felt thankful that they have learned so much through the workshop. The teachers also commented that such event not only benefits the children, but also to the local community.
From now on, the ROHM Group is aiming to implement more community-based events like this and expand to more sites around the world.
