Of elementary and junior high schools close to citizens, we are developing schools designated as evacuation sites City at the time of disaster. We stock up on disaster prevention equipment, evacuation supplies, food, etc.

It's a supply base for evacuation shelter. In the event of a disaster, it will be a storage base for each area and a receiving base from other cities. In addition, we store in firefighting branch office as dispersed storage place of ward office.
It is a replenishment base for supplies to each ward. We divide city area largely and install according to direction.

Usually, it is an underground water tank where fresh tap water flows as part of the water pipe. When the water pressure drops, it flows in, the valve of the runoff closes, and the drinking water is stored. As a local water supply base away from distribution reservoirs, we have developed mainly at elementary and junior high schools that are evacuation shelter.
This facility lays an earthquake-resistant pipeline from an earthquake-resistant water distribution trunk line and installs an emergency water supply device at its tip to supply water. It is maintained at elementary and junior high schools, ward offices, parks, etc. in evacuation shelter Prefecture.
Wells that can be provided as domestic water for washing water (washing, etc.) to local people in the event of a disaster are designated as disaster emergency wells. The wells that have cooperated have a plate for "House for Emergency Well Cooperation".
