Today, wefre going to be talking about ghow to get the information you need in an emergency.h

When disaster strikes, a state of confusion usually ensues, and it can be exceedingly difficult to get your hands on the information you need. If you go to an emergency shelter, there will be a system of bulletin boards and announcements in place to provide information on vital matters, such as the delivery of food and relief supplies, and the state of temporary relief housing.

After the Hanshin Awaji earthquake, a variety of information was provided in languages other than Japanese?but there is a limit to the amount of information that can be provided in other languages, and many foreign residents complained that they couldnft get the information they needed because they couldnft understand Japanese. In order to avoid this in the future, it would be helpful to learn to read and understand Japanese words for things like gemergency shelter,h gadvice counter,h gdisease and injury,h gFood will be delivered at (such and such a time),h and so on.

The number of volunteer groups and NPOs providing support for foreign residents on a daily basis is on the increase, and these organizations are preparing to be able to provide relief programs and advising services in case of disaster. You can find out what kind of information resources are available in your area by looking online or inquiring at your local city or town hall.Well, thatfs all for today.
