Abstract

Voluntary disaster prevention organizations in neighborhood should prepare the emergency response ability in regions exposed to especially higher earthquake disaster risk. Against the expected Off Miyagi earthquake with Mw=8.0, an evaluation method for emergency response ability is applied to all of the 1,391 organizations in City of Sendai. Even if some regions exposed to especially higher risk, most of their preparedness levels of emergency response were uniformly low. Strategy for disaster prevention promotion considering the risk differences is needed.
