"Stockpile" that is said to be fully prepared in anticipation of earthquakes and typhoons. Since the food and daily necessities required differ depending on the age and gender, some people may be wondering, "How much do you need at home after all?" Introducing a service that I found useful after using it. This is a function provided by the website "Tokyo Stockpiling Navi".
Tokyo stockpile navigation
" Tokyo Stockpiling Navi " is a website where you can check the items and quantities required for "daily stockpiling". You can also access it from the Tokyo Metropolitan Disaster Prevention Homepage or the Tokyo Metropolitan Disaster Prevention App.
If you answer the gender and age of your family, pets, and type of housing, the quantity of food and daily necessities you want to stockpile (for about a week) will be displayed immediately. The contents presented to the author of living with three people (a couple and one infant) covered 52 items such as 59 L of water, 59 meals of retort rice, 210 disinfectant wet wipes, and 105 simple toilets. Some of them, such as "disposable body warmers: 42" and "portable stoves: 1", assume the time when the temperature will drop. "There is no space to put this many items!", But he said, " I think that the lifeline will stop for at least two weeks, so let's keep that much stockpile." It can be said that the amount you want to bring as close as possible while devising the storage method.
The importance of preparation that was reminded by the pandemic. I would like to regularly recollect "I don't know when and what will happen" and review my stockpile at home. If you are at home, be sure to read back the disaster prevention book "Tokyo Disaster Prevention" that was distributed a few years ago!
