The Vietnamese community in Koriyama city, Fukushima Prefecture has helped local authorities make Vietnamese subtitles for the disaster awareness-raising videos. The videos are part of the series launched by the Koriyama Municipal Government to raise disaster prevention awareness among expats in Japan.

They contain helpful information, including instructions to “Safety tips” – a disaster prevention app overseen by the Japanese government and available in multiple languages. English and Japanese subtitles are also available.

The videos, lasting over 8 minutes, briefly introduce the topography of Koriyama, northeast Japan. They convey the necessity of disaster prevention awareness, and tips to gather information and safely evacuate in the event of a disaster. Around 3,000 foreigners are currently living in the city.

“We hope people will utilize these videos to enhance their knowledge about disaster prevention no matter where they live in the city or elsewhere,” said Koriyama Municipal Government's International Policy Division, which created the videos.
