Tachikawa Life Safety Learning Center
The Tachikawa Life Safety Learning Center is a facility where you can experience disaster prevention in an enjoyable way.
We look forward to welcoming you as part of a group or with your family members or friends.
Of course, you can also visit on your own.
Mini Disaster Education Theater
A view of a city where an earthquake has struck is projected onto a large screen. If a major earthquake hits Tokyo directly, what actions should we as individuals take? Also, what kinds of earthquake preparations should we make on a day-to-day basis? We will be projecting an earthquake-themed video.
Earthquake Simulation Room
Experience the realistic shaking of an earthquake so that you can avoid panicking when you feel the earth shake in real life. Junior high school students and those older can experience a magnitude 7 earthquake. However, there is a limit on the seismic intensity for elementary school-aged visitors and younger. (No small children allowed.)
We will also be introducing various tools that can be used to rescue people who have been trapped under furniture.
Smoke Maze Room
Learn how to evacuate without inhaling or being surrounded by smoke in the event of a fire inside a building.
Learn about the damage caused by and characteristics of smoke. Also learn about “hot doors” that feel hot when touched.
Experience a series of actions from conducting a search to rescuing survivors in a space that reproduces an earthquake disaster scene with realistic modeling. Also experience indoor spaces modeled after a bedroom or office.
Fire Fighting Training Room
Extinguish images of fire projected onto a large screen using a simulated fire extinguisher. Learn about proper fire extinguishing methods and making assessments and gain the ability to take action. Members of office self-defense firefighting units can also experience firefighting exercises using actual indoor fire hydrants.
First Aid Training Room
Learn how to perform chest compression massages and how to handle an AED using training dolls in case of an emergency.
