Bridgestone Corporation has established a new facility in order to better educate its employees on disasters and how to prevent them. The Global Disaster Prevention Center is located within the Bridgestone G-MEC Building in Tokyo, Japan, and Bridgestone is using it to conduct training to prepare for fire-related emergencies. The centre will be further expanded early in the next fiscal year to include training on natural disasters, and will draw upon lessons learned in Japan’s earthquake of 2011
