The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) on Wednesday showed off a fleet of 10 fireboats in a parade on the Chao Phraya River.

 

Bangkok deputy governor Sakoltee Phattiyakul presided over the launch at Suan Luang Rama 8 Park in Bang Phlat district. 

 

The 38-foot boats will be commissioned to the Sam Sen and Bovornmongkol fire stations.

 

Also present at the ceremony were BMA Permanent Secretary Silpsuay Raweesangsoon.

These are needed due to the almost constant floods in bkk so the fire brigade can get along the streets to the fires that rage in the wet buildings all the time i guess?

Any other ideas ??

I thought it was very difficult  to set fire to a river so i wonder if these boats are of a design that lends themselves to an easy conversion to a luxurious mimister carrying pleasure craft when someone realises rivers dont burn well  ??

These boats were purchased for their "skimming" opportunity.

And I'm not referring to "skimming" across the water.

Fireboats ? What are they going to do , pull alongside a fire and use a bucket on a rope to get water from the river to throw at the fire ?

 

This is a fireboat

But guess the budget was enough to buy the real ones but by the time 80% got skimmed off by BMA officials then all they were left with was enough money to buy what looks like 10 tenders.  However when the floods come again they can always use them to push the water away 😂😂

Mot much use if it cant enter the klongs
