Japan is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, and its earthquake resistance standards for buildings are some of the strictest in the world. However, in the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of 1995, buildings constructed to former earthquake resistance standards (built prior to 1981) collapsed and blocked principal roadways, thereby causing problems for emergency rescue and firefighting operations.
On March 11, 2011, the Tokyo Metropolitan Government (TMG) formulated Japan's first ordinance promoting the seismic retrofitting of buildings along emergency transport roads.
As a rule, earthquake resistance diagnoses conducted between April 2011 and March 2014 will be fully subsidized. Excellent Japanese earthquake resistance technology, including new seismic retrofitting methods currently under development such as seismic isolators and seismic dampers, will be utilized. With this forward-thinking initiative and world-leading earthquake resistance technology, the TMG aims to complete seismic retrofitting of roadside buildings by 2015, realizing a safe, disaster-resistant Tokyo able to withstand even major earthquakes.
A typhoon disaster preparedness plan must contain the steps that you and your kids must take in case you get separated or in case you need to evacuate.
Make sure your kids know that they have to contact you about their location when a typhoon starts and they’re not with you or not at home.


Tell your kids that they’re safest at home and that wading in the flood can cause sickness or electrocution.
The Philippine Red Cross suggests that each member of the household must have a lifeline kit that will last them for at least 72 hours.
In case you’re not home and have left important documents or electronics such as cellphones and laptops lying around when a typhoon starts, ask your kids to collect them and move them to a place where they won’t get wet.

Additionally, in times of emergency, they become lifelines supporting evacuations, emergency medical and firefighting services, the transportation of supplies, and restoration and reconstruction activities.
As parents, it is our responsibility to protect our family at all times especially when disaster strikes. Older kids must have your contact numbers as well as those of your trusted relatives or friends, whom they can call in case of emergency. Closed doors will also prevent large debris from going inside your house in case of flooding.


Have a battery-operated radio on standby so that you can still listen to the news in case there is no electricity. You must prepare this before disaster strikes and make sure your kids know where to find them. Advice your kids that it’s okay to evacuate as long as it’s upon advice of local authorities. In a country where experiencing several typhoons in a year is inevitable, we must then have a disaster preparedness plan ready.
If your kids are alone in the house, tell them to avoid using these and use rechargeable lamps instead.
If you’re not with your kids during evacuation, remind them to tell you which evacuation center they were taken.
