Ven. Guo-Qi, the Secretary-General of DDMSWCF, indicated that mitigating the severity of disasters is one of the aims of DDMSWCF. As such, DDMSWCF employs a two-prong approach in this situation; collaborate with the government in fire safety education in addition to enhancing fire safety measures in the homes of those at risk. Taking the necessary safety precaution reduces the accident rate as well as enables the mind to be at peace.
