We invited [disaster prevention promotion advisor Kenji Yamaguchi] to learn about disaster prevention for first-year students at Yoshida Junior High School.
What are the evacuation sites in your area, what will happen to your home in the event of a disaster, and which places are dangerous? The theme of the discussion was ``What kind of evacuation actions can you take by learning about disaster risks?''
High probability of liquefaction. The house sinks. Anyway, run to a higher place. There was an announcement. Some of the participants said they wanted to call out to elderly people living alone and evacuate with them, and to remember what they learned today and act calmly in the event of a disaster.
After that, the center staff made paracord .
Although it was difficult to finish the work within the allotted time, they encouraged me to call out to me when I didn't understand something, and I was encouraged to work on it. I was moved to hear the feedback from students who are disaster prevention officers. I hope that the city will continue to work on building a town that is resilient to disasters .
The 1st Sandbag Championship was held in slightly hot weather.
A battle between adults and middle school students!
The winner is a middle school student! ! ! He happily handed out the trophy to everyone.
It became clear that Yoshida Town still needs sandbags, and we heard people saying , ``I want to make more'' and ``I want to make them again.'' In fact, when people from the local community came to pick up sandbags, they learned that the sandbags they had made were immediately useful, and they realized the significance of what they had done today.
Today, each team used 50 sandbags, but when we learned that approximately 50,000 sandbags were used during the heavy rain disaster in 2018, we realized how difficult it was.
Hand it over to the farmers! Both looked happy!
The activities began after a strategy meeting to discuss how to do it efficiently.
