・After the announcement of the start of evacuation is announced, evacuees will be divided into 3 areas and evacuated to nearby evacuation sites, informing them along the way that they will have to change their route and have them evacuate using a different route. After gathering at the evacuation site, the fire brigade checked on the safety of the residents, and the residents evacuated to Mima Elementary School. Students will also learn through a workshop-style disaster prevention education tool that solves problems that actually occurred during the Great East Japan Earthquake.
・The purpose is to get students interested in disaster prevention and mitigation through hands-on experience, and to practice evacuation with their neighbors while simulating an actual disaster and confirming the evacuation route to the evacuation site.

At 8:30 a.m., a broadcast announcing the start of a disaster prevention drill was broadcast, and members of the Miyano Shita-cho Neighborhood Association in Mima-cho, Uwajima City, Ehime Prefecture, began evacuating. But this time it's different.
On the way to the first evacuation site, a member of the fire department told them that they could not take the usual route ahead, so they took a different route to Mima Elementary School, which would serve as an evacuation site.
There were approximately 100 participants, demonstrating the high level of disaster prevention awareness in the area. As it should be, a women's fire department has also been formed in Mima. In addition, the area suffered from long-term water outages due to heavy rains in July 2018. In order to raise the awareness of residents during normal times, from 9:30 a.m., they divided into 11 groups, including children, and conducted an evacuation center management simulation called "Sasuke Naburu" for about two hours.
What is Sasuke Naburu?
A workshop-type educational tool that teaches lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Fukushima while solving problems that actually occurred in evacuation shelter management. There is no "correct" answer to every problem. Students will learn how to think in the event of a disaster, which will require them to flexibly respond to situations that change depending on the disaster, region, people, and various other factors.
Also, in the dialect of Fukushima Prefecture, ``sa'' is used casually, ``ke'' is ``quick'', ``na'' is used to stop begging, ``na'' is used as ``sato'', and ``home'' is used as in ``sato''. It is a coined word that combines "susuke-nee" and "sustainable", which means being sustainable.
"Sasukene" is said to mean "no worries or no problems" in the Fukushima dialect.
Divided into groups of adults and children, each group came up with great ideas, and the children came up with the same ideas as the adult group. Mr. Kazuhiko Amano, a specially appointed professor in the Faculty of Human Development and Culture at Fukushima University, was impressed. .
In addition, this area is targeted for evacuation of elderly people and others from the tsunami-hit area when a Nankai Trough Earthquake Emergency Warning is issued. Therefore, three members of the community association from the evacuated area also participated, and exchanges between the Mima area and the former Uwajima area were held.
