When large-scale disaster occurred in Yokohama-shi, for which had difficulty in life as an evacuee at evacuation shelter and home, we concluded social welfare facilities and agreement in the city and placed as evacuation sites in particular.
We change name to "the welfare refuge" which is used widely in the whole country from April, 2018.

  • When serious damage occurs by large-scale disaster and cannot live at home, we will take shelter in evacuation shelter such as elementary and junior high schools in the city.
  • Among towers such as elderly person, child with a disability, person, expectant mothers, infants required, we are to find space for towers required in each evacuation shelter to person having difficulty in life as an evacuee in gymnasia.

Still secondary refuge to accept person judged to have difficult life as an evacuee in evacuation shelter is "the welfare refuge".
