Crimes, Traffic Accidents
110 Dial 110 and contact the police if you are a victim of a crime, witness of a crime, or are involved in a traffic accident.
Fire 119 When a fire occurs, alert your neighbours in a loud voice. If there is a fire-alarm box in your building press the button right away. After securing your safety, dial 119 and tell the operator that there is a fire and your address.
Sudden Illness, Injuries 119 In the event that you suddenly become ill or injured and cannot go to the hospital by yourself, you can call an ambulance.
*You can dial 110 or 119 from a public phone at no charge. Lift the receiver and press the emergency button on the telephone. You can also call from your cellphone.

In Case of Earthquakes
Japan is one of the most earthquake prone countries in the world. When an earthquake occurs, be sure to protect yourself from falling debris. After the shaking stops, turn off the stove and gas right away. Find the nearest exit and open it. If a major earthquake occurs, take refuge at your municipality's designated evacuation area. Make sure you are aware of the evacuation area in your neighborhood.



Medical Facilities with Foreign Language Support
  Information regarding medical facilities with foreign language support is available on the internet. AMDA International Medical Center, an NPO, also provides medical interpretation via telephone.
