Dr. Mimura, Dr.Snell, it gives me great pleasure to welcome the Thirteenth Joint Meeting of the UJNR Panel on Fire Research and Safety. Our increasing urbanization and growning fire losses show that your work is of increasing importance to our nations and the world. The tragic fires following the Hyogo ken Nanbu earthquake on January 17, 1995 specifically illustrate the need for your work.
