ID card (copy) For peace of mind, keep a copy of your insurance card and driver's license in your emergency bag.
groceries Drinking water Assuming that convenience stores and supermarkets are closed during the evacuation, always keep a 500ml bottle of water on hand so you can take it with you when you return home.
sweets It is safer if it can be stored for a long time at room temperature.
Information acquisition item mobile battery Results show that the number one thing that people who were affected by the disaster were missing was a mobile battery. It's a good idea to have something you're used to everyday, not just in emergencies.
charging cable Along with a mobile battery, prepare a charging cable according to the device you are carrying.
mobile radio It's a good idea to keep one in your office that is easy to use, depending on its power supply type and size.
contact memo In case your cell phone battery dies, write down the phone numbers of your family and close friends.
emergency first aid kit If you leave scratches untreated, germs can get in and your clothes will get dirty, so it's a good idea to have a first aid kit with you. First aid kits usually include things like gauze, swabs, bandages, and slings.
Chronic disease medicine, regular medicine It is assumed that people with chronic illnesses are more likely to become unwell immediately after a disaster occurs. You may not be able to get the medicine you need while living in an evacuation zone, so it is a good idea to prepare your own medicines.
mask It's safer to keep a few new ones in stock. It can also be used as a cold protection item when it's cold.
Tissue paper Flushable tissue paper can also be used in the toilet. In addition to what you normally carry in your bag, keep some extra stock.
portable toilet During the evacuation process, it is assumed that toilets may not be available due to water outages. There are many portable toilets that are lightweight and compact when folded, so it is a good idea to have a small type on hand.
Cold protection disposable warmer Disposable body warmers that can be stored easily are effective not only in winter, but also for warming your body when cold due to wind and rain.
General purpose handkerchief A handkerchief can also be used as a mask when escaping from a building on fire. Tenugui are highly versatile disaster prevention goods that can be used as bandages, slings, and underwear. It won't be bulky even if you put multiple sheets in it, so prepare several.
safety pin It is useful for wrapping and securing bandages and gauze, as well as towel underwear and towel underwear. You can also include it with your first aid kit.
plastic bag If possible, it would be helpful to have several large and small sizes available. It can also be used as a rain gear or as a furoshiki.
Rain gear (poncho, raincoat, etc.) Having rain gear on hand at all times will come in handy not only in the event of a disaster, but also in case of sudden bad weather. Rather than an umbrella, choose something like a poncho that will leave your hands free and allow you to see clearly.
athletic shoes It can be difficult to walk long distances in pumps or leather shoes, so it's a good idea to have a pair of comfortable athletic shoes with you.
whistle Useful when asking for help. We also recommend keeping it in your bag.
flashlight Useful for nighttime evacuations and low power situations.
