Having seen the disasters increasingly large-scaled and complicated in more places over the world, Fire and Disaster Management Agency, Japan (FDMA) has periodically organized an international forum for over a decade to contribute to the capacity building in disaster response in many countries through sharing its knowledge and lessons.

The forum this time, will virtually take place on 25th February and 3rd March, with 11 language simultaneous interpretations available. Zoom will be used for this virtual event.

The contents of the forum will feature three aspects - rescue, volunteer firefighters and fire prevention, together with Japanese fire/disaster response equipment.
