―――――――――――― About the association ――――――――――――
In Japan, weird crustal movement is happening now.
A major earthquake becomes the realization-like menace.
Is it a fire to be the most scared by a major earthquake ?
We believe that urban disaster prevention includes all energy for the fireproofing of the buildings and we must wrestle about it.
Furthermore, there is the issue of depopulation with a serious problem in our country.
So far, the depopulation still advancing even though the government concentrated power on depopulation measures as for everybody knows.
A depopulated area becomes serious, and localcommunity is about to disappearing now.
Hastily, We must plan the reproduction of the hometown. We plan revival of the forestry in it and to stop the dilapidation of the mountain.
Japan is the mountainous country which is outstanding in the world. When a mountain does not improve, the water of the river does not improve,
and it is clear that the area does not improve also.
We must plan revival of the culture of the woods by all means.
Thus, we established a Fireproofing Association of Urban Disaster Prevention
(FA+UDP) in such purpose to plan the fireproofing in the city,
at the same time to raise added value of the wood from the above mentioned point of view in same time, and to plan revival of the forestry,
in 2012 we started the activity.
An action of the urban disaster prevention fireproofing promotionproject begins by the Ministry of Land, , Infrastructure and Transport and
the local governments which including fireproofing measures of the crowded old wooden houses area in the city.
We plan to spread correct fireproofing knowledge and the technology to meet such a social needs, and which contribute to establish much safer,
much secure environment.
Using non-combustibility wood which the progress of the fireproofing technology of the wood allowed, the spread of wooden architecture in
the urban area and promote disaster prevention plan and the fireproof performance gain of the structure needing promotion of making it,
, and same time we plan healthy upbringing of the forest of our country by the utilization such as wood and thinning woods in addition.

Japan is an earthquake country, and the disaster prevention is extremely important and effective measures are necessary.
Utilization of the rich forest resource is a social important theme, while the local governments working on disaster prevention fireproofing
projects in cities of the whole country increasing.
By a recent technological advance, effective non-combustible woods circulated for the inflection of a fireproofing technology and material
and forest resource.
We established our association to plan promotion of the disaster prevention through the spread and the quality control administration of
the fireproofing technology such as this non-combustible woods, and to plan healthy upbringing of the forest of our country.
