Preparing for Emergencies and Disasters
Preparing for Emergencies, Accidents, Injuries, Illnesses and Disasters
We never know when an emergency will occur. Let’s be prepared so that we can take proper action without panicking if we should become the victim of a crime, if a major disaster, accident or fire occurs, or if there is a sudden illness.
In addition, it is essential to understand at least a minimal amount of emergency vocabulary in Japanese so that you can communicate in an emergency situation.
Japan has frequent natural disasters. Some knowledge about safety and disaster prevention can keep damage and loss to a minimum.
