Case study – [Reality of Organisational behaviour in emergency] from Namie Town Office
Detail of the case study –
Namie Town office was an ordinary municipality before the earthquake. Community disaster prevention plan and manual were prepared and disaster drill was carried out just as same as other municipalities. Such one of average municipalities faced the outbreak of the unprecedented Great East Japan Earthquake, tsunami and nuclear accident.
How measures for disasters as the plan, manual and drill functioned or not?
What kind of problems the officers faced at the disaster scenes?
The case study provides participants with simulated experience of disaster measure through Namie town officers actually conducted.
Feedback from the participants
– It was practical as I could assume if I were in the same situation through simulated experience type training.
– I thought that there were no “absolute correct answers”. In such situation I think I have to utilise own ability and resources at the maximum for the community people.｡
– The session was full of realism by lively explanation and session process, and it was like I experienced the earthquake related work.
