Fire Safety Museum 防災科學教育館

Anchor point

Introduction

Registering 7.2 on the Richter scales, the January 17, 1995 Great Hanshin earthquake — then Japan’s worst natural disaster since World War II, next only to the Isewan Typhoon — left 6,430 dead, 40,000-odd injured, more than 510,000 houses partially or fully destroyed. It also  caused private and public property losses, totaling 10 trillion yen. On July 10th of that same year, the newly restructured Taipei City Fire Department set about building Taiwan’s first fire safety museum and arming it with simulation features, in order to raise awareness about natural crises and the correct approaches to tackling them. 
 
Employing computerized, electronic or mechanical simulations, the museum now offers quasi-physical experiences of various natural hazards — along with thorough mini-documentaries on their respective histories and characteristics — in the hope that visitors will make preparations accordingly for fires, floods, earthquakes, typhoons and other types of calamity part of their daily life. Fun tips are also incorporated into the exhibits to help visitors brace for the unexpected more efficiently. 
In conveying what they have learned from those educational displays to friends and families, the museum-goers can spread the message and help to effectively avert the threat of disasters. 
 
Keep in mind: 
(1) All visitors will be charged an admission fee. To ensure high-quality services, however, please follow the museum guides’ instructions. 
(2) Interactive displays are available ONLY to visitors aged 4 or older.

    An excellent experience

    2017-04

    We visited with my 4 years old. It was not very crowded. They offered guided tours. We experienced what we should do if there was a fire. Also, there is a place to experience earthquake. They provided fire fighter costumes for Kids to put on and tried to put out a fire. It is fun to spend half day there.

    A very educational visit

    It is a very educational visit. We learned what we should do when there is a fire. My little girl could still remember the little green man which represent an exit. She can spot them in her daily life now. We also experienced earthquake too.

    It's a great place for kids to visit! They got chance to experience earthquake, escaping from a smoky corridor and put out fire! Sadly my kids are small and they were not allowed to climb the emergency stairs.

    網友邀約一同前往,制式化,有點無聊

    2018-08

    因為網友邀約一同前往防災教育中心,有解說防災應變的知識,也有穿消防衣服的體驗,也有穿過滿是煙霧瀰漫的房子,還有噴水救火的體驗。 如果是國小中年級以下小學生或是幼稚園孩童前往,應該會很開心。 如果是不到小班的孩子,因為很多事情聽不懂,很容易滿場跑,會干擾秩序,導致其他人受影響,不會有好的體驗。 如果是帶著青少年(因為團中有國中生)那麼也不適合,因為他們會感覺無聊,而且消防衣服雖然有分尺寸,但是沒有青少年的尺寸。他們會覺得體驗活動很幼稚。
