Mutual Support and Cooperation

Evacuation shelters, to be opened in times of large-scale disaster, will be operated, with the leadership of residents.

Smooth operation requires the cooperation of evacuees who will gather at the evacuation shelter. It is essential for everyone to think about "what I can do" so as to prepare a comfortable evacuation shelter.
