I watched many maiko-sans, geiko-sans and restaurant staffs taking part in a fire fighting training. They were given a hard course by fire fighters of Kyoto City Fire Department. There are a lot of wooden constructions in Kyoto, especially in Gion-town almost are the old wooden. So that residents who live in this town must protect their houses from a fire by themselves.
