China's firefighting authority and subway operators are mulling rescue plans to handle fires in the underground transportation system, a fire control official said during a regional workshop on emergencies in urban environments on Wednesday.

Detailed plans will be developed, including assessing risks in stations posed by different types of fires, with a focus on stations that have high passenger flow, according to Yang Guohong, director of operational training in the Ministry of Public Security's fire department, at the workshop.

The workshop was designed to strengthen cooperation and communication between China and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations and was organized by the ASEAN Regional Forum.
