"Strengthen preparedness for effective response"

〔Efforts in Hyogo〕

Hyogo is developing various systems for quick search and rescue activities and strengthening response capability through practical disaster prevention trainings.


Development of regional emergency management bases

Hyogo has been stockpiling relief goods by developing regional emergency management bases equipped with the function of stockpiling and collection/delivery of relief goods. These bases also include functions for gathering and providing lodging for relief workers.

  • Miki Earthquake Disaster Memorial Park was opened as a regional emergency management base for the entire prefecture and 5 other regional emergency management bases were installed.
  • Hyogo developed a base near junction point. A heliport is fully-equipped to secure air access.
  • Miki Earthquake Disaster Memorial Park is ordinarily used for fire academy and sports facility. In the event of a major disaster, it will be used as a hub facility of the regional emergency management base.
