The evacuation information in the event of a disaster has been updated. At the same time, please check the basic disaster information “Mie Prefecture Multilingual Evacuation Center Map”. (Mie-ken Tagengo Hinan-jo Map – 三重県多言語避難所マップ).
On May 2021, The Disaster Countermeasures Basic Law (Saigai Taisaku Kihon-ho – 災害対策基本法) has been amended to improve evacuation information in the event of a disaster.
The main amendment is that the Evacuation Advisory “Hinan Kankoku” and the Evacuation Order (emergency) “Hinan Shiji” had been unified into one and will just be called “Evacuation Order(Hinan Shiji)”. Until now, the difference between the evacuation advisories and evacuation orders (emergency) was not fully understood, and that is the reason why many people were affected during disasters due to the delays in evacuating because they did not evacuate at the timing of the evacuation advisories where they should have evacuated.
To all the citizens of Mie
Take steps to protect yourself according to the evacuation information announced by the municipalities.
