I had the opportunity to take part and witness the Yokohama Annual Disaster Drill in August. For this blog post I have made an infographic to showcase the event and relate it to what simple things we can do in Victoria to be more prepared in case of an emergency.

The event was for the local public to engage and learn about disaster preparedness, as well as to facilitate all the different stakeholders for training purposes. The disaster drill began with an earthquake simulation in which everyone was to participate by ducking and covering. Small structures to simulate fallen houses and buildings were used for controlled fires and rescue missions. A multi-story building was used to demonstrate firefighting and a rescue as well.
