Registration system for people requiring assistance during a disaster

This registration system provides local community organizations with information on people who require assistance such as confirmation of their safety or the need for help in evacuating. It allows each community to create their own evacuation support system. People who require assistance during a disaster must apply for registration. About 13,200 persons were registered as of March 2016.

Help card

Help cardHelp card

A “Help Card” is available for persons with disabilities to make it easier for them to ask for attention or help when a disaster or problem occurs or in an emergency. It is the size of a business card with information on their emergency contact(s), which medical facility they are registered at, and their required support, etc.

We encourage people requiring assistance during a disaster to use the help card and to apply for the registration system.

Welfare evacuation center

To cope with the difficulty of living in designated evacuation centers, the welfare evacuation center is a secondary evacuation center made available for the elderly, people with disabilities or other people who require assistance during a disaster.

Sendai City is developing a system to respond to the individual needs of people requiring assistance. This is being done by increasing the number of welfare facilities that contract with the city to allow their facility to be used as welfare evacuation centers, as well as providing necessary materials and equipment, and stockpile supplies. There were 110 welfare evacuation centers in Sendai as of the end of March 2016.
