One year shortly after the Shurijo Castle fire A third-party committee inspects the disaster prevention posture of Himeji Castle October 24, 21:29
It will be one year at the end of this month since the large-scale fire that broke out at Shuri Castle in Okinawa.
On the 24th, a third-party committee of Okinawa Prefecture, which is considering measures to prevent the recurrence of fires for reconstruction, visited Himeji Castle in Hyogo Prefecture and inspected the disaster prevention system and equipment.
Regarding the large-scale fire that broke out at Shurijo Castle last October, a third-party committee in Okinawa Prefecture, which is considering measures to prevent recurrence, compiled an interim report last month (September) and trained night guards. It has become clear that the actual initial fire extinguishing was not possible due to lack of information and information sharing problems.
In response to this, the third-party committee visited Himeji Castle in Hyogo Prefecture on the 24th and inspected the disaster prevention system and equipment.
Of these, the disaster prevention monitoring room at the castle was briefed on a system that instantly records the concentration and location of smoke detected by the fire alarm with a surveillance camera and shares it with the fire department in real time.
Attorney Aharen Mitsuru, the chairman of the third-party committee, said, "I learned a lot from seeing the attitude of protecting Himeji Castle by human power day and night. How the fire department should cooperate with Okinawa Prefecture, etc. I want to continue exploring. "
The main hall of Shurijo Castle, which was burnt down, is being rebuilt by the country by 2026, six years later, and the design of the building and the sources of raw materials for wood and red roof tiles are being considered.
