Forest Fires in Thailand

WARF's newst project is up and running, in association with The Forest Fire Control Division, Chiangmai Flying Club together with NOK Flying Club pilots and members are invited to participate in reporting outbreaks of forest fires in Chiangmai and Lamphun Provinces. This information should be passed to the Forest Fire Control Division (DNP) in Chiangmai – Hotline 1362 - who will take appropriate action. Reporting forest fires please call Chiangmai DNP office 053-276100 Ext. 11 during office time or our hotline 1362 round the clock.

Forest fires should be reported by all members of the public to the DNP as soon as possible, giving location, time of observation and extent. Pilot’s observing forest fires from the air should ideally give GPS coordinates and geographical location.
