Yuko Suzuki

Than we are afraid of disaster,
"Preparations for thing" and "preparations for heart"


 "Meeting turning on light of heart" is disaster prevention group moving into action in Nerima-ku from 2002. With elementary school or child building in Nerima-ku, we performed handmade picture-story show and puppet play and continued working on enlightenment for child mainly. Opportunity of start dates back to the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake of January 17, 1995 when chairperson, Hiroko Suzuki experienced.

At "5:46 a.m. when earthquake was generated, the outside was still pitch-black. It was area relatively with a little damage that I lived, but it is lost power just after that and cannot confirm even face of the third son (4 years old at the time) who next, was sleeping. Tableware is broken and is scattered when it finally shows the situation of room at the sunrise, and goldfish bowl is overturned, too…It was state called this"

 There is examination of the eldest son, four days later to Tokyo. Afterwards, Suzuki who moved into Hikarigaoka housing complex. When Nerima-ku disaster prevention section called for administration of evacuation base in 2000, we participated as member of PTA.

From "disaster prevention section, we cut canned aluminum to half and hung down some salad oil and we did Koyori of tissue to core and had method to make light tell. Experience of darkness of earthquake disaster was combined, too and was impressed very much. So it was said, "we talk by all means in front of all" when we talked about the Kobe times

 We had you turn on "desired light" in Kobe minute and performed disaster prevention event with various places evacuated to from Miyakejima. Therefore Suzuki seemed to speak experiences for the first time.

"Taking this occasion, we could do what and were going to get along to me. And we did the name of meeting for "light of heart" when we wanted to convey consideration to importance and person with life

 Activity spreads and is taken up in the media such as national newspapers. Meanwhile, it was one girl that remained for memory of Suzuki.

After "having done puppet play with a certain child building girl in the first grade "scary very much. What should I do?" We were afraid of this seriously. "It is all right if we assume preparations for heart and preparations for thing, Ryokata. We explained, you returned to house, and talk with mom and daddy about well" and had teacher and mother respond

 There was faith not to waver to Suzuki and felt that it reached as sincere words simply because there were heart and preparations for thing properly.

Quantity of water which we want to have always ready per person of the day is 3 liters, life water with drinking water, and 7 liters is indication"

 It is method called "rolling stock" that Suzuki and others push forward. We find only some food which we usually eat a little too much and eat from near thing of the expiration date and buy more things that decreased. In this way, it is not necessary to buy emergency rations expressly.

If "hot meal near usual times is removed, even at the time of earthquake disaster, we are relieved and can protect health of family, too. At the time of disaster to refuge…If is apt to think of this, but house is safe; home is the first. It is hard to change maintenance of privacy to anyone"
