What you have to keep in mind when evacuating:

When a disaster has happened and it is quite dangerous to stay inside the house, you need to evacuate quickly and calmly.  You have to bear in mind the protection of the vulnerable such as babies and toddlers or elderly people.  It is important to cooperate with people in your neighborhood.   Never fail to get in touch with elderly people living alone near your house. 


› Use your own judgment when evacuating.

When disasters are coming, the situation someone is in is different from person to person.  You must make your own judgments and take a proper action.


› Take minimal steps to protect your life. 

Give first priority to your safety.  When there is an impending danger, not only moving to the designated evacuation center but also taking minimal steps to protect your life may be necessary.
