Disaster Awareness

Earthquakes are common in Japan.The Great East Japan Earthquake (seismic intensity 7 on the JMA scale) occurred in 2011 and the Noto Peninsula Earthquake (seismic intensity 6 upper on the JMA scale) occurred in Ishikawa Prefecture in 2007.
In addition, large earthquakes can occur anywhere in Japan,so please always take sufficient measures in order to minimize possible damage.
Furniture and stationary articles may topple over and houses and buildings may collapse during an earthquake. Fires and tsunamis are more likely to occur and utilities such as electricity and water may be cut off.

 

Evacuation sites

In Kanazawa, schools and community centers etc. are designated as evacuation shelters. Find out which school zone you live in and confirm the site location using the Kanazawa designated evacuation shelter map.
Also, all members of your family should know the location of a temporary evacuation shelter (nearby park etc.).
 

In the event of an earthquake

・Stay away from furniture and lighting fixtures for your personal safety. Protect yourself by hiding under a sturdy desk or table. If you are outside, get away from rivers, the sea, or cliffs as quickly as you can.
・When the tremor subsides check all sources of heat or fire, shut off the gas valve and water faucet, switch off the
electricity at the mains, open the doors in your house to secure an escape route and prepare to evacuate.
・If you go to an evacuation site, stay calm and watch out for falling objects.
・Emergency information such as warnings of after shocks will be broadcast on the radio and TV after an earthquake.
