What is an Evacuation Shelter? 避難場所について

Evacuation shelters are designated facilities or public areas where you can seek shelter if there is an earthquake, tsunami, flood, fire, or other large scale disaster. In general, most schools, community centers, or parks are designated as evacuation shelters in times of emergency. If evacuation seems necessary, Kameoka will inform the public by issuing one of the following:

  • Evacuation for the Elderly and other High-Risk Persons (高齢者など避難 kōreishatō hinan)
  • Evacuation Advisory (避難指示 hinan shiji)
  • Emergency Safety Measures(緊急安全確保 kinkyu anzen kakuho

These warnings will be broadcast on television, on the radio, by cars with loudspeakers, and by E-mail*. Even if Kameoka has not issued an evacuation order, if you feel you are in danger during a natural disaster, you should quickly and calmly go to the nearest evacuation shelter. Please see the list below.


  • 高齢者など避難(こうれいしゃとうひなん)
  • 避難指示(ひなんしじ)
  • 緊急安全確保(きんきゅうあんぜんかくほ)

You should make sure you know where nearby shelters are ahead of time. You should also make a plan with family and friends so you can meet up in the event of a disaster. You should also look up nearby hospitals, convenience stores, and public telephones.

Designated evacuation shelters are designed to provide temporary residence for people who have nowhere to go during a disaster. You should go to one of these shelters if your home is partially or completely destroyed by fire, an earthquake, other disaster, or if being in your home becomes dangerous. Kameoka City will open these shelters depending on the the type of disaster. You can get information, food, and drink at these evacuation shelters. If you are unable to return to your home, you can stay overnight at the designated evacuation shelters.

The city will open extra evacuation shelters on stand-by in the event that long-term evacuation shelters are unable to respond to the needs of all the victims of a disaster. Once they have been opened, you can get food, drink, and information at provisional evacuation shelters. If your home is too dangerous to return to, you can stay overnight at provisional evacuation shelters.
