When there are tremors, there is the risk of homes collapsing and tsunamis, which are dangerous.

Preparedness on a Regular Basis

  1. Reinforce your furniture with braces so that it will not topple over
  2. Prepare a backpack full of supplies (such as water and preserved foods) to take with you in an emergency
  3. Check the Hino City Disaster Prevention Map

If an Earthquake Strikes

  1. Hide under a table or desk and cover your head, since objects may fall from above
  2. After the tremors subside, extinguish all sources of heat
  3. Open a door to secure an exit
  4. Do not rush or panic; walk when evacuating


In heavy rain or strong wind, the waters in rivers may overflow, which is dangerous. Typhoons frequently occur from July through October. Trains and buses may be delayed or stopped.

When a Typhoon Is Approaching

  1. Check for the latest information on TVs or radios.
  2. Do not go outside in heavy rain or strong wind.


If You Discover a Fire

  1. Get outside the building if you hear a siren or someone shouting “Fire!”
  2. Ask your neighbors for help and dial 119 to call the Fire Department.

Fire Trucks and Ambulances

If you need to call the Fire Department or ambulance to report a fire, injury, sudden illness or traffic accident (with someone injured), have the following information ready:

  1. Tell the operator whether you’re calling for a fire or illness/injury
  2. Explain the conditions (such as if a person is unconscious or injured)
  3. Give the address (or describe the location and any nearby landmarks) and your contact number
