Last update date September 11, 2019

When large-scale disaster occurred in Yokohama-shi, for which had difficulty in life as an evacuee at evacuation shelter and home, we concluded social welfare facilities and agreement in the city and placed as evacuation sites in particular.
We changed name to "the welfare refuge" which was used widely in the whole country from April, 2018.

(1) With the welfare refuge

・When serious damage occurs by large-scale disaster and cannot live at home, we will take shelter in evacuation shelter such as elementary and junior high schools in the city.
・Among towers such as elderly person, child with a disability, person, expectant mothers, infants required, we are to find space for towers required in each evacuation shelter to person having difficulty in life as an evacuee in gymnasia.

→Still secondary refuge to accept person judged to have difficult life as an evacuee in evacuation shelter is "the welfare refuge".

(2) Evacuation to the welfare refuge

・It is difficult to maintain life at evacuation shelter and home and applies to needing for special consideration.
・Specialists (health nurse) confirm yes or no of the situation and certification for long-term care of the person and judge the need of evacuation to the welfare refuge.
・Function that the welfare refuge needs person who is not judged to apply cannot evacuate to play the part.
・The welfare refuge is not opened soon after the disaster occurrence by all means.
・As for the movement from evacuation shelter, movement by the person, family is principle.

Or acceptance by entrance directly urgent to care for the elder healthcare facility Care manager by adjusting entrance
We may perform.

(3) Target facility

Including social welfare facility concluding agreement with ward office (elderly person facility, person with a disability facility, community care plaza)

(4) Q&As

Q: What kind of facility is the welfare refuge? What kind of facilities and support are there?
A: It is social welfare facilities such as elderly person facility and person with a disability facility, community care plaza concluding agreement with ward office.
Facility is made barrier-free and, in environment where tower required is easy to live, can receive support depending on the situation of facility as far as it is possible.
Even if it is the welfare refuge, in cooperation with neighboring refugees, we will have you take shelter while helping each other.

Q: When is the welfare refuge opened? Who can evacuate?
A: The welfare refuge is not opened soon after the disaster occurrence by all means.
We can confirm security, and, from facility where had good administration preparations, ward office calls for establishment sequentially.
We ascertain the situation of tower after damage required to utilize limited resources effectively, and it is necessary to have you evacuate from high priority.

Q: Standard of acceptance of the welfare refuge? Who decides how?
A: It is difficult to accept all the target towers required at a time to be limited in facility becoming the welfare refuge.
Specialist jobs (health nurse) judge people with high need in support (from information of tower which or was attracted by evacuation shelter required) from person sheltering in evacuation shelter more.
Based on judgments such as specialist jobs, ward office determines whom you accept at which welfare refuge.
