Taiwan’s First Hands-on Interactive Emergency Evacuation Exhibition Center

To ensure travelers’ safety and safeguard the Metro system, in addition to holding safety promotion activities and simulated training drills on a regular basis, Taipei Metro has been implementing Taiwan’s first hands-on Interactive Emergency Evacuation Exhibition Center since 2006. It includes display and hands-on functions on emergency equipment to allow people to familiarize themselves with devices that they are normally not allowed to touch or to use in non-emergency situations. Equipment to be facilitated in the camp includes emergency exits for passengers on trains, platform emergency exits, emergency stop buttons, fire extinguishers, and a simulated Track Intrusion Warning System. Participants can operate safety equipment firsthand, so that they can become familiar with how to use it in the event of an emergency, thereby minimizing injuries.

The Interactive Emergency Evacuation Exhibition Center is located on the first floor of Taipei Metro’s Beitou Resort Training Center. The indoor training area consists primarily of interactive games and equipment for hands-on practice. The outdoor training area offers simulated situations for visitors. The Center was completed in December 2007, and is now opened to the general public.
