Q&As

Q1: What kind of facility is the welfare refuge? What kind of facilities and support are there?
A1: 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.

Q2: When is the welfare refuge opened? Who can evacuate?
A2: 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.

Q3: Standard of acceptance of the welfare refuge? Who decides how?
A3: 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.
