Report on support for Deaf disaster victims published

It will be soon three years after the Noto Hanto Earthquake that occurred in Ishikawa Prefecture.

The Ishikawa Prefecture Association of the Deaf completed a report, titled "An overview on support activities for Deaf people in the Noto Hanto Earthquake" (A4 size, 112 pages).

The report introduces examples and issues based on experiences of city officials and volunteers in the safety confirmation in the stricken area, interpreting, the daycare service, etc. with the illustrations.

The association also published a result of the questionnaire about the support to Deaf victims at the disaster based on the responses from 19 cities and towns in the prefecture late last year.

It was pointed out that the support system for Deaf victims was varied to those cities and towns.
