The number of landslide events and impacts seems to be increasing. To solve landslide hazard problems, Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) has established local landslide watch networks or self-protection networks in risk areas. The networks are local people working for their communities or villages as volunteers. DMR established the Geohazards Operation Center (GOC) in Bangkok to focused on Landslide' watch and to coordinate with the local networks and relevant agencies. When heavy rain is approaching landslide prone areas, the GOC will disseminate landslide watch bulletin and Radio, television, SMS and email are used to communicate usually. The local landslide watch networks can also phone to the center to get more information and to report real time situation from their areas. The two-way communication like this can be the most effective way of connecting with Network for Landslide's Watching and Monitoring.
