Evacuation, Emergency Shelters

Evacuation is the last resort. There is no need to evacuate unless there is danger such as a large-scale fire. However, evacuate immediately if the situation becomes life-threatening.

Evacuate in the following situations

  • Danger of the fire spreading after initial fire extinguishing efforts failed.
  • Evacuation order is issued by the city, police department or fire department and so on.
  • Judging from the surrounding conditions, evacuation appears to be necessary such as the occupied building being prone to collapse.

*Before evacuation, switch off the breaker to prevent electrical appliances from causing fire.

How to evacuate

  • Evacuate by foot and bring only essential items
  • Gather at designated evacuation area as instructed by neighborhood disaster preparedness community.

*Elementary school (rescue center) and parks are selected as designated evacuation area.

  • Go to designated evacuation area as instructed by the police or respective disaster preparedness community leader and so on.

Rescue center

Rescue center is a facility for people to take shelter temporarily as their homes have become unsafe to reside in due to earthquake or other disaster. District elementary and junior high school and so on are designated as rescue centers. It is also a place where all types of emergency activities such as medical support and information update are given to victims affected by the disaster.

Evacuation area

Evacuation area is a site identified by Tokyo Metropolitan, as protection for Tokyo citizens from large-scale fires in times of earthquake. University campus and cemeteries and so on are being selected. Further, “self-containment area within district” is an area that does not require any evacuation as the risks of fire spreading is low.
