Kumamoto Earthquake: Information system to keep Deaf persons aware at shelter


Keeping Deaf/deaf persons aware of what is going on is a problem at a shelter in Kumamoto Prefecture where an earthquake yet occurs.

They miss an announcement in the shelter because of deafness, missing an important information while people around them don't notice, so there is a fear that the Deaf/deaf persons are easily isolated at the shelter.

The person concerned said, "When you have an important  information at a shelter, you should make it written as much as possible."
