In these countries, buildings are often required to have more floors called refugee floors. This is an area with open space outside so that smoke does not accumulate in one place, helping to evacuate quickly in an emergency.

In Japan: the country has the best fire protection education system
Characteristics of Japanese architectural works are to use a lot of wooden materials, so it is easy to generate fire. Therefore, the fire room has become a strong consciousness handed down from generation to generation in Japan, with the following contents focused:
Education of FPF at all ages: In Japan, people can find signs of refugees in the event of a fire everywhere. All apartment buildings are equipped with flame and fire extinguisher tools. Japan’s fire protection content is one of the most important educational contents with the aim of bringing knowledge to each individual, helping them protect their lives, the safety of the community and the common property of society.
In books for preschoolers, the content of refugees in the event of natural disasters and hazards is also included in the teaching: how the children follow the instructions of adults, how to act and move. This educational content is repeated and rehearsed since the Japanese were children until they became adults working in public agencies every year.
Every educated child becomes a bodyguard for himself and others: The Japanese philosophy of fire protection is simple but equally important. Each individual in tribulation will become proactive people who protect themselves and those around them. It is no coincidence that Japanese people are admired in the way of education by the world because they not only teach children about fire since the kids have learned to crawl, but Japanese children are also educated to be the protection hero for themselves and People around when there is a fire.
Any child will be the hero of the future of society, becoming people with a sense of security and disaster prevention in the region. Japanese parents are also aware of building a family education platform that values the safety of each of their children. Here, the system of lessons is designed very lively to create excitement for children, help children not only agree to act but also develop judgment and handle situations.
Not only are children taught how to safely evacuate but also Japanese children are specifically instructed how to use fire extinguishers as well as how to handle fire situations. Therefore, at a very young age, parents should provide lessons, advice for their children about fire protection issues, to be able to protect themselves, protect others, protect those relatives around me.
Continuing education: Not only educating young children, not only kindergarten education but Japanese people applying this educational content are repeated and rehearsed until becoming adults. This work also lasts even when working in public agencies every year.
Particularly, at the general education levels, the content of hazard prevention is practiced many times a year, with many specific cases, especially in areas with flammable and explosive structures, prone areas. Fire security in Asian countries and earthquake.
Above is the reason why Japanese people are always calm, confident and wise in the process of effective fire prevention and mitigation.
After the March 11 earthquake disaster, Japanese people are increasingly aware of the importance of rescue training. They increasingly keep order and stability after disaster thanks to the consensus and consistent coordination of each individual based on common understanding. From this fact, all Japanese society became people with the sense of security protection and disaster prevention and disaster in the region.
