How many govt. buildings adhere to fire safety?

After the devastating fire at the capital's FR Tower, the issue of fire safety in high-rise buildings in Dhaka has become a focal point of discussion for quite some time now. The good thing is that at least we have begun to talk about it. Maybe, we should also begin checking how many government buildings adhere to fire safety regulations. Because if even government institutions cannot maintain fire safety precautions, then how can we expect government bodies to take on the regulatory role of overseeing other private buildings? A few days ago, Prothom Alo carried out a news report on Dhaka North City Corporation where it had disclosed that the DNCC does not have adequate fire safety measures.

If government buildings cannot maintain fire safety regulations, and cannot set an example to building owners, then we cannot realistically expect people to adhere to safety precautions when constructing or designing buildings.
