1. Introduction :

 

Bangladesh is one of the most densely populated countries of the world (1,100/qkm) with an annual population growth of 2.1%. Construction standards are generally low and many houses are poorly built and maintained which makes them prone to damage caused by seismic activities, cyclones or floods. Existing laws and building codes are very often not implemented due to corruption at all levels. Roads and bridges in rural areas are often in a bad state of repair and exposed to the risk of being interrupted by flooding or cyclones. This also refers to the ferries and communications in general. The Government of Bangladesh has begun to seriously address the issue of Disaster Management following the Hyogo Framework for Action 2005-2015 (HFA) to which Bangladesh is one of the signatory countries. Bangladesh has a regulative framework for disaster management that provides guiding for relevant laws, policy and best practices. The Disaster Management Act forms the legal basis (i) for the protection of life and property (ii) to manage long term risks from the effects of natural as well as technological and human induced haza rds, and (iii) to respond to and recover from a disaster. The National Plan for Disaster Management shall provide the overall guideline for the relevant sectors and the disaster management committees at all levels to prepare and implement specific plans for their respective areas. The plan identifies the key sectorial policy agenda for disaster management. The Standing Orders on Disaster provide a detailed institutional framework for disaster risk reduction and emergency management. They outline detailed roles and responsibilities of Ministries, divisions, departments, various committees at different levels, and other organizations involved in disaster risk reduction and emergency management According to Bangladesh National Building Code BNBC, all high rise buildings, industries, factories, and business centers have to appoint fire safety manager.  Based on the present demand and circumstances, a Fire Science and Occupational Safety Course is a time demanding course. We believe that this course will play a vital role to improve fire safety preparedness in Bangladesh. It is very much related subject with our activities. We know that such courses are being conducted by Fire Department in many countries around the world. Fire Service and Civil Defence Directorate is the only mandated authority of  the Government to carry out FIRE FIGHT and SEARCH & RESCUE operation in any disaster and also for fire and other disaster prevention activities.
