Foreign Resident Disaster Support Project (Commissioned by Mie Prefecture)

The 3.11 Earthquake (2011 Tohoku Earthquake, or the Great East Japan Earthquake) has created the need for large-scale disaster prevention measures. In Mie Prefecture, the occurrence of large scale earthquakes in the Tokai, Tonankai and Nankai areas is a constant worry and so counter measures are of great importance. Many foreign residents have little experience or knowledge about disasters and there is a lack on information available in foreign languages which means that foreign residents are thought to be particularly vulnerable.

We hold training seminars in order to help support as many foreign residents as possible during a disaster. We also hold disaster prevention seminars for the foreign residents themselves as the training seminars. The goal of these workshops is to improve regional disaster prevention measures and to encourage self-help and cooperation for foreign residents when disaster strikes. Please feel free to participate in these workshops and seminars!

Disaster Drill for Foreign Residents

These drills are held for both Japanese and foreign residents in order to improve their disaster prevention knowledge.
