Make Preparations Before a Disaster Occurs!

If you were to have to evacuate, make sure you have adequate emergency supplies on hand.

As a family, discuss beforehand how to reach each other, where to evacuate, and have these written down in case of an emergency. A disaster could occur at any time, so it's best to always be prepared.

Household Safety Measures

  • Safety Measures for Inside Your Home

(1) Create a safe retreat area inside your home. … Configure the space as needed to ensure safety.

(2) Refrain from placing tall furniture near places where children or elderly persons sleep. … If an earthquake occurs during the night, it may put them in danger.

(3) Make sure furniture won't fall down in the event of an earthquake. … Close up any gaps between the furniture and the wall.

(4) Refrain from placing anything in the hallway or in front of doors that would inhibit a safe evacuation. … In the case of an emergency, exits may become blocked.

 

◆Place furniture in a way so that it won’t easily fall over, or simply don’t place it at all.

◆Install metal fittings to furniture, appliances, etc. to prevent them from falling. In addition, refrain from placing objects up high.

◆Affix shatterproof film to windows, glass cupboards, etc.

◆Take caution when dealing with fires. In case a fire were to break out, be extra careful not to place flammable objects around your home, and know where a fire extinguisher is at all times.

Always Remember These Evacuation Points!

  • A Fundamental Approach to Evacuation

Evacuate Using Your Own Judgment

In the event of a disaster, circumstances will vary from person to person. Using your own judgment, take appropriate actions and evacuate.

● If you are living in area prone to landslides...

● If you are living in an area prone to flooding...

● If there are those living with you requiring special attention, such as children or elderly persons...

Take caution and evacuate swiftly

 

Taking Appropriate Actions to Protect Yourself

In the middle of a dangerous situation, evacuating as best as you can in a way that guarantees your safety is top priority. In a life-threatening situation, move to the nearest designated evacuation shelter, taking necessary actions to protect yourself. These situations may include but are not limited to:

● Flash flooding in the middle of the night, making evacuation routes difficult to traverse.

● If flooding is above knee level (50cm)

● If flooding doesnt exceed 20cm but the current is fast.

● If flooding doesnt exceed 10cm but it is hard to make out the position of gutters, posing a tripping threat.

Moving outside can be dangerous. Depending on the level of flooding inside and the sturdiness of the building, using your own judgment, it may be safer to take shelter on the second floor (or higher) of your own home or of a neighbor’s home. Remember, your life could be at risk.

 

3 Levels of Evacuation

Depending on your situation, evacuation may be even more dangerous!

In any case, always try to evacuate as early as possible!

 

1. Prepare to Evacuate・Seek Shelter for Elderly and Children

● For situations in which there is a high risk of personal injury

● For those whom it may take longer to evacuate, begin seeking shelter.

● Those who can evacuate by themselves should prepare to do so.

 

2. Evacuation Advisory

● For situations in which there is clearly a high risk of personal injury

● There is an official announcement for all citizens to move to the nearest evacuation shelter

 

3. Order to Evacuation (Urgent)

● For situations in which there is an extremely high risk of personal injury (or there are already reports of injuries)

● All citizens are to evacuate at once

● For those with only limited time to evacuate, take necessary actions to protect yourself

  • Emergency Contact System

Disaster Emergency Message Dial: 171

If a large disaster occurs, telephone lines may become extremely busy. During this time, phone companies will provide a "Disaster Dial Service" or "Disaster Message Board". By dialing the Message Recording number (171-1) plus your phone number, you are able to leave a message for family and friends to receive and listen to via dialing the Message Playback number (171-2).

Message Recording

171-1-(your phone number including area code)

Message Playback

171-2-(phone number of person you are trying to reach including area code)

! During a disaster, it may become difficult to make phone calls.

Families should have ways to reach each other by means other than telephone.

In addition, keep these following points in mind:

Safety Confirmation

◆ During a disaster, refrain from making non-emergency calls.

◆ Public telephones are generally reliable, so know where the closest one is in your area at all times.

◆ Rather than calling disaster-affected areas, it is easier to contact more distant areas. An effective strategy is to contact outside relatives and have them put together information about the situation.
