Online Workshop about Complex Disasters and Evacuation

JEN invited Mr. Hiroshi HIDA from OPEN JAPAN as a main speaker to online workshop about complex disasters and evacuation on May 20, 2020.


JEN has provided disaster prevention trainings to bolster the preparation of future disasters in Marumori-machi. In this workshop, JEN shared the views on measures to evacuate in this situation of Coronavirus with participants from the organization of self-government, the women’s fire protection club, the mayor of the ward, the residents, and the local public office.

Marumori-machi town office explained the current situation of dispersed evacuation and a stockpile for Coronavirus. The local resident explained the measures to reduce the risk of the Coronavirus infection and the evacuation planning. In addition, they referred an example that they supported the people affected by disaster as a local community in Kosai area. We recognize the importance of supporting each other in the local community in case we cannot rescue from the outside of the devastated area.

We appreciate all participants from Marumori-machi and Mr. Hida for exchanging opinions actively.

We will continue supporting them to provide for complex disasters in Marumori-machi.
