II Disaster Preparation at Home

Disaster Preparation at Home

Talk with your family!

Your family will not necessarily be together when a disaster occurs. Have a list of contact information for workplaces and schools. In addition, make sure that you have an emergency supply and evacuation kit.



Make sure you know evacuation routes and the locations of evacuation areas!

Municipal offices provide hazard maps that mark possible danger areas as well as evacuation areas so that residents can evacuate safely. Check the location of your home and the nearest evacuation areas.


Participate in a volunteer disaster preparation group!

A volunteer disaster preparation group is a cooperative organization that is formed independently by community residents. There are over 2,000 of these groups in Toyama Prefecture, many of them founded by neighborhood associations. Fire departments and other governmental disaster management agencies usually provide aid during a disaster but there is a limit to their capabilities, especially in the early stages. Make sure to have strong bonds with your community.


★What is the emergency message line?

NTT's emergency message line "171" goes into operation when a disaster such as a major earthquake (shindo 6 or greater) occurs. Use this service to confirm the safety of your family and friends.
 To record a message: 171→1→area code + phone number→record message
 To listen to a message: 171→2→area code + phone number→message is played

★What is the emergency message board service?

During a disaster, you can use your cell phone to access the emergency message board service. You can leave messages or read other people's messages.

To leave a message:
(1)Access the emergency message board for your mobile service provider.
(2)Select "登録" ("register" or "entry").
(3)Choose a message about your situation such as "無事です" ("I am safe"), and enter an additional comment if you wish.

 To read a message:
(1)Access the emergency message board for the mobile service provider.
(2)Enter the mobile phone number of the person you would like to check on, and select "検索" ("search").
