JRCS Nuclear Disaster Response Basic Training Sessions
The Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) has held Nuclear Disaster Response Basic Training Sessions (Nuclear Disaster Training Sessions) since FY 2014 as one of its efforts to strengthen nuclear disaster preparedness, based on the lessons learned from its response to the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami as well as Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Accident. In FY 2014 and 2015, the JRCS held the training session twice each year and reviewed the content of the sessions and materials for use. The JRCS divides the country into six operational blocks. Starting from FY 2016, the JRCS decided to organise the training session by each block to tailor it to the location of each nuclear power plant and the situations of each JRC chapter and hospital. In FY 2016, the JRCS held the sessions for the Second (Kanto and Koshinetsu), Fourth (Kinki) and Sixth (Kyusyu and Okinawa) blocks. In FY 2017, the JRCS held the sessions for the First (Hokkaido and Tohoku), Third (Tokai and Hokuriku) and Fifth (Chugoku and Shikoku) blocks.
