Living Waters Spinal

The spinal boards are designed to limit the movement of patients to reduce the possibility of further injuries as they’re moved from the incident to hospital.

Together with the National Emergency Medical Services Foundation, the presentation was made to the Phuket Provincial Public Health Office and 18 rescue units operating in the province. This donation is part of the Emergency Rescue Board project covering all 77 provinces in Thailand, at a total cost of 40 million baht.

The ceremony was attended by Mr. Somsuk Sampantip – Deputy Director of the Provincial Public Health Office of Phuket, Mrs. Nayana Yodrabam – Deputy Governor of Phuket, Dr. Suprid Wongsripoom – Deputy Chairman of the National Emergency Medical Services Foundation and Dr. Somkuan Hanpathanaicharuay – Secretary of the Living Waters Foundation, as well as Mr. Chon Stanton – Chairman of the Lifewaters Phuket Foundation, Mr. Chad Adams-Sansom and the members of the Church of Christ – Mr. Krairat Watsan, and Mr. Sathapatt Prida from the Saint Joseph Foundation.

The ceremony took place at the Provincial Public Health Office.

After the handover ceremony, the island’s rescue personnel demonstrated the proper use of the spinal rescue boards based on international ‘best practice’ in recovery and rescue techniques.
