|The emergency card which Tokushima-shi |
plans to distribute to the Deaf community.
Tokushima-shi, Tokushima Prefecture in western Japan made the business-card-sized "emergency note" which the emergency contacts, required support, etc. can be filled in.
The card will be useful when a Deaf person needs support from the surrounding in state of emergency, the shelter at the time of a disaster, etc. according to the city office. Free distribution is scheduled to start on October 1 in the city office, etc.
Tokyo has already advanced the spread of such an emergency card since 2012.
