A student fire brigade is increasing recently. The student fire brigade of the Shukutoku University (Chiba-shi, Chiba Prefecture next to Tokyo) is the first fire brigade in the universities nationwide. 

They usually do rule practice, gets on the fire truck loaned from Chiba-shi, puts protection against disasters patrol in an area into effect, and helps with an emergency drill at a nursery school and the school for the Deaf. Protection against disasters guidance is also performed with a neighborhood association. 

At present, eleven members are actively involved in the fire brigade, finding a time from school works and a part-time job.
