Sendai Earthquake Disaster Prevention Officer
Hi, I am looking forward to explaining ways on how you can best prepare for an earthquake or any number of disasters.

What is the Earthquake Disaster Prevention Advisor?
The position of Sendai Earthquake Disaster Prevention Officer was instituted after a rather large earthquake took place off the coast of Miyagi in June of 2003. In concert with Sendai’s Fire department, this position seeks to inform Sendai citizens of how to prepare specifically for earthquake disasters.
