Bangladesh is one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. Bangladesh is also at risk from earthquake, along with a new dimension in urban risk due to its fast growing and increasing density. All disasters are associated with fire incident excluding flash flood. So more training is needed and awareness programme for the peoples to be enhanced. The present Government is committed to reduce disasters by enhancing overall disaster management capacity. Government of Bangladesh has expressed its commitment to invest more in the field of DISASTER RISK REDUCTION. Government of Bangladesh is implementing several programmes to enhance the disaster management system, response and recovery including firefighting system to a risk reduction culture and for that "Standing Orders On Disaster" has been developed. According to Bangladesh National Building Code (B.N.B.C), all high rise buildings, industries, factories, and business centers have to appoint fire safety manager. Based on the present demand and circumstances, a Fire Safety Manager 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.
The Program covers the fundamentals of fire science and public safety, including laboratory classes, Practical sessions, fire safety engineering, relevant structural engineering topics and field visit.
