Disaster Prevention Measures in Yokohama
Since the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake that occurred in January 1995, the city has used this earthquake as a valuable lesson, and based on the belief that "the most important thing for the government is to ensure the safety of citizens' lives and property," We have reviewed earthquake countermeasures from a practical perspective.
The first review implemented in April 1995 was designated by evacuation shelter's designation. In addition, a disaster prevention storage was set up at an elementary and junior high school designated as a evacuation shelter-based emergency storage facilities for disaster prevention equipment such as saws, crowbars, jacks, engine cutters, as well as food such as dry bread and water cans. And started maintenance as aevacuation shelter. By the end of FY2016, we had 459 locations.
In the event of a large-scale earthquake such as the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake, along with the activities of the fire brigade and rescue squad, disaster prevention activities with the mutual cooperation of citizens living in the area are particularly indispensable.
In order to be able to carry out effective activities in an emergency, preparation and training are required on a regular basis. We always have the feeling that "I will protect myself with my own hands and protect everyone's area together", and we hope that you will always be prepared for disasters.
