Making an Emergency Contact Plan for Your Family

To give a priority to an emergency call, use another way except regular telephone lines to contact your family

  • Anyone can use NTT’s emergency contact service ”Saigai-yo Dengon Dial 171”.
  • The public telephones get priority connection from NTT, and it’s more easy to access. So know where the nearest one is.
  • In times of disaster locations further away from where it occurred have faster connection. Therefore it is recommended to designate the phone number of a relative who lives in a different area as your contact point.

40% ”Cannot do a thing”

40% "Cannot do a thing"

A survey of what went on during the Hanshin-Awaji Great Earthquake in 1995 showed that 39.5% of people "could do nothing". People tend to freeze with fear and panic when faced with a natural disaster like a powerful earthquake. Being able to act calmly in emergency situations means that danger is controlled and lives are saved. It is well worth making a plan with your family about what you will do in an emergency.
