Visit to Yokohama City Municipal Disaster Prevention Center
29 students with their families and 14 volunteers visited Yokohama City Municipal Disaster Prevention Center on a crystalline autumn day.
We started in two groups, one using municipal subway and the other using JR Yokohama line. At the center, we experienced smoke environment (walking in poor visibility), darkness environment (walking along a wall in darkness), and simulated earthquake. We also saw exhibition.
The center staff taught us in an easy to understand manner and we could learn how we should behave at disasters such as fire and earthquake.
