The Hanshin Earthquake which hit on January 17, 1995 and measured 7.2 on the Richter scale, killed 6,430 people, injured more than 40,000 people, and destroyed or partially destroyed more than 510,000 houses. The damage, including to public facilities, was estimated at about 10 trillion yen. Moreover, on July 10 in the same year (1995), the Taipei City Government's Fire Department was restructured, and to enhance public disaster preparedness education, helped the public understand disasters, and the importance of learning about disaster preparedness and response, It also began planning Taiwan's first disaster prevention scientific education museum.

To help the public understand the characteristics and hazards of various disasters, the disaster prevention scientific education museum of the Taipei City Government Fire Department simulates all kinds of disaster conditions through computer, electronics, machinery and equipment, so visitors can see what field operations are like and allow fire, flood, earthquake, typhoon and other emergency escape and preparedness knowledge naturally integrate into their daily lives to improve disaster coping capacity through "edutainment".
