Christian commented on Community Fire Prevention

One method of reducing future hazard, exposure, vulnerability and thus risk of fire in informal settlements would be for future migrates to cities such as Dhaka to leave adequate space between their places of abode, work and leisure. The space should be adequate for the retrospective fitting of infrastructure and services inclusive of those that pertain to water as the settlements formalise. The space should also act as a physical barrier to the spread of fire. Training some of the dwellers of these settlements in urban planning and management would be a great start.
