[Monthly Report vol. 40]

Three years and four months have passed since the occurrence of the Great East Japan Earthquake.

Thank you for your continuous support for Civic Force.

More than 320,000 people dead, about 620,000 people injured and about 220 trillion yen of economic loss—. According to an announcement by the government, these are some of the estimated damages that will result from the anticipated Nankai Trough Earthquake. The government set a goal to reduce this figure by 80 percent by taking measures in the next 10 years.

Attaining this goal means that concrete measures must be taken in each area because the government and local municipalities are limited in terms of what they can do. Civic Force is now focusing all its efforts on disaster preparedness by utilizing the experiences and lessons learned in its activities following the 2011 disasters.

The 40th monthly report focuses on a disaster drill conducted in Aichi Prefecture on June 15, and a joint drill conducted on June 20 and 21 in Okayama Prefecture, which was organized by the Self-Defense Forces.
