"Be Prepared! Lessons Learned on Readiness and Resilience"
The 10th Year Anniversary & Commemoration of
3.11.2011 The Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami

Wednesday, March 10, 2021

Program #1:"International Webinar Conference"

5:00~6:00PM (PST)

Due to its climate and topography, Japan is prone to natural disasters, and throughout history it has experienced more than its fair share of typhoons, floods, earthquakes, and tsunamis. 

 In the upcoming complimentary webinar entitled, "Be Prepared! Lessons Learned on Readiness and Resilience," a panel of experts and a survivor of one of the strongest earthquakes in history will share how best to prepare for and survive a natural disaster. The event is especially timely as we commemorate the Ten-Year Anniversary of the Great East Japan Earthquakes and Tsunami and consider the recent ranking of the County of Los Angeles by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as the riskiest county in the United States for natural disasters. 

Attendees will hear a first-hand account of surviving a catastrophic 9.0 magnitude earthquake and tsunami.  They will learn about the recovery and rebuilding work in progress in Japan in the 10 years since 2011.  That will be followed by presentations from top experts in the field of natural disasters and a panel discussion covering the key tactics to take before, during, and after a disaster to survive it. 

The program will be emceed by Yuko Kaifu, President of Japan House LA, and moderated by David Ono, award-winning news anchor of ABC7.  It will include both English and Japanese translations.
