Introducing New Model Evacuation Center amid COVID-19 in Omachi

On June 29, A-PAD Japan hosted a demonstration of a thermography camera with a distributor at the Omachi welfare center in Saga. The Omachi welfare center was used as an evacuation center last year during heavy rain. Staff members of the Omachi municipality joined the demonstration to check out the termography camera. A-PAD Japan plans to lease the device to municipalities free of charge.

In addition to the thermography camera, A-PAD Japan set up an isolation room with two beds made of cardboard boxes and a portable toilet. A-PAD Japan plans to install those items at evacuation centers upon request from interested municipalities.

Portable toilet and tent: this portable toilet does not require water but it uses saran wrap to conceal the waste.
