Annual Fire Training & Drill

 

Fire Drill & Training

An action-packed shot from today’s fire training & drill!

This morning monks from the temple as well as members of the Kyoto Fire Department participated in a fire drill at Kondo Hall.

Fire is a very serious danger at historical sites like Ninnaji and it is important for people on site to be trained and familiar with what to do in an emergency. Members of the office staff as well as monks from the temple participate in this training event every year.

Training includes everything from how to perform CPR to practice using firefighting equipment including fire extinguishers and fire hoses.
