HÀ NỘI — Vietnamese and Japanese experts shared their experiences in fire safety and evacuation at an international workshop in Hà Nội on Thursday.

The event was held for the first time by the Urban & Architectural Institute in collaboration with the National University of Civil Engineering, Tokyo University of Science and Panasonic Vietnam.

The workshop is an opportunity for experts, individuals and organisations in the fields of architecture and construction to share practical experiences and solutions to fire safety and evacuation for the community.

“We have continuously made efforts to offer solutions of housing and electrical home appliances for creating a comfortable life while reducing environmental burden, by using our accumulated technology and cutting-edge energy management technology,” said General Director of Panasonic Eco Solutions Vietnam Kazuki Shirota.

Shirota said that Panasonic always focused on researching and developing new technologies, providing advanced products and solutions, and bringing a modern, comfortable and safe life to consumers.

At the event, Panasonic introduced fire-prevention materials applied in electrical construction materials manufactured in Panasonic Eco Solutions Vietnam, such as Panasonic sockets, switches, circuit breakers and smoke detectors.

According to the General Statistics Office, there were 2,091 fires and explosions nationwide in the first half of 2018 that caused serious damage to people and property.

This is due to rapid urbanisation and escalated scale and areas of construction, along with an increase in population and the number of combustible materials being frequently used. In addition, limited awareness of fire prevention and safe electrical equipment leads to potential fire risks. — VNS
