Taoyuan City Mayor Cheng Wen-Tsan inspected “2019 Taoyuan City Air Raid Wan-An No. 42 Drill” on May 27. Mayor Cheng stated full advanced preparation and simulation have been conducted for this drill this April (2019), and it was promoted through the smart district/village system for several times. Participating colleagues showed their proficiency of the operations and procedures of this drill, and citizens actively cooperated with the drill, so it was completed successfully. The city government would conduct drills for various assumptions in the future to improve related operations.
Mayor Cheng said the spirit of the drill was that “preparation is always required even though we never look forward to using it.” The purpose of Wan-An No. 42 Drill was to improve citizens' awareness of national defense through the simulation of disaster rescue. Besides information delivery, air defense warning, evacuation, recue of the wounded, and war/disaster first aid, this drill also included the rehearsal of emergency command center transfer; the connection with district offices through the mobile communication vehicle was helpful for following up disasters in every district.
