Sendai Disaster Management Headquarters during the Great
East Japan Earthquake
The BCP shows concrete actions that need to be taken by each department in chronological order when a large-scale earthquake or tsunami happens, from when it occurs to 2 months afterwards, and is based on our experiences and the lessons we learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake. It was formulated in March 2014 so that all officials understand their roles and how to prioritize their duties. The plan aims to protect the lives, health and property of citizens, minimize the effect on citizens’ lives, and allow work responding to disasters to start quickly, as well as to continue to provide basic government services and return to normal operations as soon as possible, even if a large scale disaster prevents the city offices from functioning as normal.
