Preparing for the Nankai Earthquake ③

Emergency supplies for evacuation and supplies for life in a shelter

   When the Nankai Earthquake occurs, you need to be mobile so as to evacuate quickly. Emergency supplies at this time should be limited to your valuables and items necessary to survive in the hours post-disaster. In particular, if you live in an area predicted to be vulnerable to a tsunami, you should give first priority to escape the giant tidal wave.

   After the earthquake, assistance from the outside world may not arrive for a while and you may not be able to return to your home affected by a tsunami. Therefore, you need to have at least 3 days worth of emergency supplies at an evacuation point or shelter.

   A list of emergency supplies for evacuation and supplies for life in a shelter is on KIA’s English website (link below). If you have not yet prepared all the supplies, you should go out and buy them soon.
