Given that there have been several cases in which nursing homes caught on fire, causing severe injury, it is obvious that the elder with difficulties to walk or in need of life-sustaining equipment are prone to danger and have trouble saving themselves when a fire breaks out in nursing homes. To make such places more effective to extinguish a fire, the ministry of the interior has enforced a new standard on Oct. 17th, 2018: for veteran homes, long-term care homes, elders’ welfare institutions, nursing homes and disability institutions, setting up a sprinkler system is a must, no matter how big the building is. It would be hard, however, for some to build standard sprinkler systems due to their own condition. Thus, after taking into account the experience of the US and Japan, the authorities have ruled that for buildings whose floor area is less than one thousand square meters, they can set up sprinkler systems that link to existing water-pipe system, making automatic fire extinguishing possible and far easier.
