At the beginning of every semester members of the Hikone fire department come to JCMU to give a demonstration on fire safety. Students get to do some hands on practice with water filled fire extinguishers. In Japan fires can spread very quickly so it is important to be prepared and yell “Kaji da” (there’s a fire) in a big voice so everyone around knows to look out. For more pictures of this event please see the JCMU Facebook page. If you are interested in joining us please see the JCMU homepage for course offerings.
