What To Prepare

ID番号 N31016 更新日 平成29年4月11日

You don’t want to be caught unprepared when a disaster strikes. It is best to prepare both a stockpile of items so you can take shelter in your house for long-term, and a backpack to grab if you need to evacuate your house quickly. Always keep enough food and water to last three days per person.  

 

Survival Kit

  Water (3 days worth or 3 liters per person)

  Emergency food rations like canned good and biscuits (3 days worth per person)

  Passport, Residence Card, Health Insurance Card, list/booklet of your medications, and copies

  Cash

  Valuables like bankbook, inkan/hanko/name stamp

  Radio (small and hand-powered – you can get radios from the International Association!)

  Flashlight and/or candles

  Batteries

  Umbrella/raincoat, warm clothes, gloves, hat

  Everyday supplies like a change of clothes, underwear, towels, tissues, etc

  Lighter, matches

  Knife, can opener

  Vinyl sheeting

  Medical prescriptions, medical kit

  Cell phone, battery/solar-powered charger

  Sanitary products for ladies

  Diapers, powdered milk, baby bottles for babies

  A large sturdy bag to put it all in

 

Things to stockpile

  Water (3 days worth or 3 liters per person)

  Emergency food rations (3 days worth per person). Try to buy food with long expiration dates, doesn’t require cooking or heating, and that you can store large quantities at a time.

  Disposable forks, chopsticks, knives, spoons

  Blankets

  Plastic sheet

  Plastic containers

  Table-top cooking stove with gas canisters (called ガスコンロ, gasu konro in Japanese)

  Change of socks, underwear

  Sturdy boots

  Breathing masks

  Cloth-backed tape

  Rope

  Disposable heat pad (called ほっかいろ, hokkairo)

  Pots and pans

Garbage bags and plastic ties for personal sanitation

 

Emergency food rations in Japan

 

There are lots of different options for emergency food rations in Japan. Commonly you’ll see a canister with small biscuits in it – these pack a lot of nutrients and calories inside, and they last forever.

 

Suggested emergency food supplies

  Ready-to-eat canned meats, fruits, vegetables, fish, and a can opener

  Biscuits, crackers, kanpan (dried biscuits in a can)

  Pre-cooked food in retort pouches (curry, soup, etc)

  Instant rice

  Chocolate, caramels

  Gel drinks

 

 

Water

It’s best to have a supply of bottled water in case of emergency. Buy a couple of big bottles now and keep them unopened in the back of your closet. You can replace them every year, and use the water for cleaning.

 

Items for Warmth

Iwate gets very cold in the winter months – up to minus 10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit). Stock up on long underwear, heavy fleeces and blankets, and a sturdy coat. Other items to buy include disposable heating pads and kerosene heaters that do not require electricity.

 

Items for your vehicle

A disaster may strike while you are on the road. In case you are stranded, keep the following in your vehicle.

  Jumper cables

  Flashlights and extra batteries

  First aid kit

  Food items like energy bars

  Water

  AM/FM radio if your car is not equipped

  Cat litter or sand for wheel traction

  Shovel

  Ice scraper

  Warm clothes, gloves, hat, study boots, jacket, and an extra change of clothes

  Blankets or sleeping bags

  Flares

  Battery/solar-powered cell phone charger

 

Be prepared of an emergency by always keeping you gas tank half-full. Gasoline may be hard to come by in a crisis.

 

 

Prepare with your family

Make it a priority to prepare a plan of evacuation with your family in case of emergency. Determine what route you will take and what evacuation point you will head towards. Additionally, delegate roles to each family member (such as what items to bring) and figure out how you will contact each other during a disaster.
