ABSTRACT

New paradigm to the advancement of technologies and policies for disaster management is required for building resilient and safe society which can protect life and properties of the citizens from the complex disaster environment. In these circumstances, enhancing the capacity of disaster management of local society has become important issues, which is based on the interactive system among central authority, local authority and citizens. The Disaster and Safety Management Basic Act prescribes that local government should announce the emergency management capacity in public. However, It does not describe in detail which items should be announced by local government. In this study, the public announcement items designed for explaining the emergency management capacity of local government are suggested. The conceptual framework of public announcement system is categorized into 4 stages, such as assessing the vulnerability, indexing the emergency management capacity, evaluating and improving the capacity, and participating of local society. The 9 index categories are suggested; (1) understanding the characteristics of disaster in the local area, (2) disaster management system, (3) preparation of disaster management plan, (4) disaster mitigation project, (5) logistics of emergency resources, (6) emergency operation system, (7) preparation of disaster response plan, (8) participating and sharing education/training/information, (9) assessing the outcomes based on the goal. And 58 detailed index under the 9 categories are suggested. This study provides some examples that show how the suggested index can be used for assessing the emergency management capacity. It is expected that the enhancement of emergency management capacity of local society can be achieved by the efforts of local government analyzing and improving the vulnerability as well as the participation of local society who recognize the emergency management capacity of their area announced by the local government.
