Thai Rath reported that the Thai authorities were doing what they always do after a major tragedy.

 

Surrounding the pen after the cow has disappeared (in Thai) or locking the stable door after the horse has bolted. 

 

Acting only after the event.

 

Santisuk police, local administration reps and the district chief in Bang Saen - a few dozen kilometers down the road from Sattahip where the Mountain B fire killed 14 on Thursday night - were out checking nightclubs on their patch last night.

 

They didn't want a repeat of the devastating fire in Sattahip.

 

They were checking restaurants, bars and pubs in the Bang Saen resort, a place especially popular with Thais. 

 

More than 10 places were checked. 

 

Nothing untoward was found and everyone cooperated. 

 

Pol Col Pattana Rorproo, Santisuk chief, said he had been instructed by higher authorities in Chonburi to make checks. 

 

This included checking IDs and for weapons as well as things like exits and safety. 

 

He noted that most places on his patch were open air and didn't represent a danger like at Mountain B.

How about having the fire chief or his nominated fire inspector visit the night clubs to correctly check required fire fighting aids and evacuation procedures.

    If they had checked Mountain B for weapons, exits, and 'safety' (whatever that is), it likely would have passed, too.   "No weapons, check, there are exit doors, check, certainly looks very safe with those tires on the roof keeping it from blowing away.  Check.  Next!"

Checking for licenses to operate too I hope.
