About the earthquake of April 7th, all houses where electricity had been restored before the earthquake were restored. Railroads which had been restored before the earthquake will be restored within this week.

One month has passed from the Great East Japan Earthquake. From this disaster, we learned many things. Because this disaster is as large from 2 to 3 times the past one, the progress of the plan hangs by about the twice the plan. About tsunami and nuclear electric plant accident, we focused to prevent, we recognized that the disaster management plan of these two are weak.

The damages of the individual residential house by earthquake were few, since Tohoku and Kanto were provided in the earthquake. But the houses where the damage of the tsunami had been received were almost thrown. Therefore, it was hypothermia and a chronic disease medicine that was wanted by an urgent medical treatment.

We learnt the ideal way of the support goods again.
Phase 1: Disaster to 1 week (For heavy disaster, to 2 week)
Life support goods such as water, instant foods, blanket, towels, stove and fuels, masks.
Baby and elder person care, such as diaper, milk powder, wet tissue, liquid diet.
Partitions for keeping privacy in the refuge such as tent and cardboard.
Phase 2: 1 week to 2 week (For heavy disaster, to 3 week)
Commodity goods such as fresh foods, sauce and seasoning, soap, shampoo, tooth brush and paste, face care, underwear, etc.
Hot meals, hot bath services, and their equipments.
Tools for individual victims restoration such as rubber boots, rubber glove, dust mask, hatchet, saw, shovel, cart, high pressure washer, mop.
Tools for city read restoration.
Phase 3: After 2 week (For heavy disaster, after 3 week)
Hot meals, hot bath services, and their equipments.
