IMG_3446-Every evening people are reminded by this sound to prevent a fire.

Using the gong has a very long tradition in the Kam communities. With their homes being made of Cunninghamia, and the fact that they are often joined, a fire will get out of control very rapidly. They take pride in the fact that in this village there has not been a fire for many years.
