Since June 2019, the method of conveying information on flood and sediment disaster prevention has changed. From now on, the evacuation information provided by the municipalities and climate information for disaster prevention issued by provinces and government will be summarized and will convey the “alert level” in 5 stages.
The “alert level” ranges from 1 to 5 and “alert level 5” represents the most dangerous situation. Do not wait until alert level 5 is issued! Everyone should begin evacuation if “alert level 4” is issued.
Evacuation measures according to alert level 1 to 5
Alert Level 1 and 2 – Stay alert and check the Evacuation Measures
Pay attention to recent disaster information. Confirm the hazardous locations through the hazard map and check the evacuation locations and how to reach them.
Alert Level 3 – Seniors, etc., should evacuate
People who need more time to evacuate (the elderly, people with disabilities, babies, children, etc.) and their caregivers should evacuate. Other people should prepare to begin evacuation at any time.
Alert Level 4 – Everyone in danger zones should evacuate
Everyone in the danger zone should flee to an evacuation site.
* If it is too dangerous to go to the evacuation site, protect yourself at the nearest safe place or the safest place in your home.
Alert Level 5 – Make the Best Decisions to Protect Your Life
The disaster is already happening. Make the best decisions to protect your life.
