Study session at the Marumori town women's fire prevention club

Even after the disaster last year, the people of Marumori Town have been working on reconstruction,  cherishing regional ties and supporting each other.  JEN has been working together with the residents for disaster VC management, study sessions, and provision of disaster prevention equipment. On October 17, a study session was held for the Women's Fire Prevention Club and Traffic Safety Mothers' Association in the Marumori area, and JEN staff served as the facilitator of the session.

At the outset of the session, we offered a silent prayer for those who passed away in the disaster last year. Arter that each participant made an evacuation plan. The participants working to improve the welfare of the community on a daily basis said that they would like to learn more about how to support wheelchair users and the elderly in the event of a disaster. JEN will continue to work with the residents to support those who need consideration in the event of a disaster.

Review Session of Typhoon Hagibis at Marumori Tanpopo Nursery School

It's been almost a year since Typhoon Hagibis last year. On October 8, Marumori Tanpopo nursery school held a study session to look back on Typhoon Hagibis, and staff members actively discussed future disaster prevention and improvement of the business continuity planning. JEN has been helping Marumori Town with the reconstruction since last year. JEN’s staff served as the facilitator of the study session and learned a lot from the serious attitude and lessons of the teachers at Tanpopo nursery school.

The Tanpopo nursery school was flooded on the floor, and the reconstruction of the building just completed in mid-June this year. Immediately after the disaster, the teachers did their best to clean up the garden and resume childcare. In the review session, many important points were confirmed, and it was strongly felt that better disaster prevention would be implemented at the Tanpopo nursery school in the future. We would like to thank you to everyone for sharing important lessons.

One year has passed since Typhoon Hagibis in the first year of Reiwa, and a memorial ceremony was held on October 12 in Marumori Town. Once again, we would like to express our deepest sympathies to those affected by Typhoon Hagibis.

Roads were destroyed in the mountainous area during the disaster last year, but we heard that some residents in the Hippo area united and repaired the roads. In such a strong regional cohesion, a study session was held on October 11th at the Hippo Women's Fire Prevention Club / Traffic Safety Mother's Association Hippo Branch. JEN’s staff served as the facilitator of the study session.

Fifteen participants said that it was good for them to review their actions in the event of a disaster through the study session. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all the participants and the members of the Hippo town planning center for your cooperation on the study session.

Since mid-October last year, JEN has been helping Marumori Town with the reconstruction. We will continue to work together as much as possible. Thank you for your cooperation.

Disaster prevention pamphlet in English, Indonesian, and Vietnamese

It's been almost a year since Typhoon Hagibis in the first year of Reiwa. Once again, we would like to express our deepest sympathies to those affected by the disaster.

After the typhoon last year, JEN has held disaster prevention workshops with residents in order to contribute to disaster prevention in Marumori town. In July, we conducted a disaster prevention training in English for Filipino trainees.  It was found that some trainees from abroad could not understand the disaster / evacuation information and they were very anxious about the disaster.

We knew trainees from their hometowns who had no experience of disasters such as earthquakes would not know what to do in an emergency and they wanted general information about disasters in their native language. Therefore, JEN has created a disaster prevention pamphlet in a foreign language (English, Indonesian, Vietnamese) with the cooperation of the Marumori town office disaster prevention team, the Marumori town chamber of commerce, and foreign students of Tohoku University. There are many foreign trainees in Marumori Town, so we strongly hope that they will use the pamphlet to prepare for a disaster. Please use the attached photo, or contact us and we will send a PDF version.

Cardboard bed donation ceremony

On September 30, a donation ceremony from JEN to Marumori town for 161 cardboard beds was held at the Marumori town office. The donation ceremony was attended by Mayor Kunio Hoshina of Marumori town, Deputy Mayor Hideyuki Sasaki, staff members of the general affairs division and health and welfare division of Marumori town office, and Hideto Kawakita, Co-Pesident of JEN.

At the ceremony, the disaster prevention section and the health and welfare division of the town office explained about disaster prevention and measures against the new coronavirus infection.  It was found that there were many improvements based on the lessons learned from last year's disaster.

For example, measures have been taken to give more consideration to the safety of the residents, such as issuing evacuation preparation information for each district and disclosing information on people requiring support earlier than before. Regarding the prevention of corona infection, we knew that equipment is secured, expert advice is helpful, and infection prevention measures for evacuation shelter operations are taken.

After Typhoon Hagibis in the first year of Reiwa, JEN is helping to contribute to the post-disaster reconstruction of Marumori town. We will continue to strive to improve the resilience of Marumori town against disasters.
