  • Manual for Relief Activities under Nuclear Disasters (Revised in November 2018)
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: The Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) published "Manual for Relief Activities under Nuclear Disasters." According to the manual, the JRCS will conduct the relief activities outside of the area restricted by the national/local authorities, as long as cumulative doses of radiation do not exceed 1 mSv during an activity. The JRCS conformed the recommendation from the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) which is applied for the public. Since JRCS's relief activities are basically within a week per team, they can conduct activities even in most of the area called "difficult-to-return zones" in Fukushima if they follow this manual.Also in order to secure the safety of relief team members, the JRCS defined in the manual, the code for conducts during relief activities, and established training programmes on Radiological Protection for the members.This manual was partially revise in November 2018.

The Japanese Red Cross Society provided indoor playground program called ''Smile Park'' for young children to be free from radiation effects. Perception of radiation level depends on local governments. Some encourage their residents to return and others regard radiation risks as still high.

  • Concerned parents seek reassurance from Red Cross radiation scans in Fukushima City
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: Parents take their children to the Fukushima Red Cross Hospital to get them to be scanned for internal radiation exposure in whole body counter. Some parents are concerned about possible effects on their children from not exercising outdoors. Some fear that their children may be regarded as ''growing in Fukushima'' in the future. As of the article date, no case of internal radiation exposure dose exceeding 1mSv was detected.

  • The extraordinary challenge of a school lunch in post-tsunami Fukushima
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: Reclassification of restricted areas made it possible for the residents of Kawauchi Village to return to their town. But new challenges emerged. For example, schools have fewer students than before the earthquake, and ingredients for school meals need to be measured for radioactivity. There are still other challenges.

  • Red Cross helps set minds at ease on radiation
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: A whole body counter installed at Fukushima Red Cross Hospital allows internal radiation exposure on Fukushima people to be measured. Although the exposure does not affect human health immediately, the measurement needs to continue for a long term, and the results can be referenced to if a similar nuclear disaster happens.

We transported two patients in emergency, one who was drowned by the tsunami and the other one who got external wound, to the Fukushima Medical University Hospital. Because of the nuclear accident occurred on Mar 12th, we had to face relief activities for the evacuees from vicinities of the nuclear power plant and the responses to radiation exposures. On Mar 13th, the team was in charge of DMAT supervisory duties, as the first experience, at Fukushima Medical University.We would like to thank to all other organizations for their support to rescue Fukushima.

  • Relief activities hindered by Anxiety, Fear and Confusion
    Author: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: Soon after we started our medical relief activities in the evacuation center in Soma, we had to leave there because of the nuclear power plant accident. While hearing blaming words from evacuees, we reluctantly moved to Kawamata with feelings of guilt and a sense of fear of the radiation, and then we restarted our relief activities at the evacuation center where many evacuees from the vicinities of the nuclear power plant were evacuating. It was distressful and freezing night. At the evacuation center, the words "radiation exposures" were flying around and the evacuees were in a small panic every time they heard these words. I felt fear. On the other hand, we received lots of appreciation and encouragement from the evacuees, and we really appreciated.After returning to our hospital, my colleagues gave me a warm welcome at the operating room and I was so encouraged.

  • Activity in the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami --- After experienced nuclear disaster
    Author: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: We established a first aid center at the evacuation center in Soma. Soon after that we had to close it down because of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, and then moved to Kawamata. After the relief activities at the evacuation center in Kawamata, we moved to Nihonmatsu in the afternoon on March 13th to receive the body contamination screenings.Before the accident, I had a sense of security that such a severe accident as radioactive substances being spread around would never happen. However, “3.11” changed my mind completely. Radioactive substances had been widely spread in Fukushima that forced many evacuees unable to return to their lands, houses or homes they had lived for a long time. I received a big shock from the disaster, but more than that I felt how powerful the "bond" ["kizuna" in Japanese] between people was, and what a wonderful human beings we were!

  • Great earthquake disaster occurred in Fukushima --- Earthquake, Tsunami and Radioactivity; Lonely battle relief activities
    Author: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: I was at home when the earthquake started. I said to myself "I hate to be sandwiched between the buildings, but I have to go now!", and headed to the hospital. Here I will summarize what I felt together with the lessons that I learned from the relief activities as my personal opinions.The evacuation center at Fukushima High School was well managed, considering the evacuees' mind, considering that the facilities were divided based on the types of evacuees, i.e. pregnant women and infants, elderly people who needed nursing, and others.The "Maternal and Child Health Handbook" was so helpful for prenatal checkup. Pregnant women should carry it with them all the time.The training and education for the disaster relief conducted at the Red Cross Hospital helped me a lot in the actual situation. Especially the examination training without advanced equipment was useful in the disaster situation.In the early stages, all the relief teams from other prefectures, except Fukushima and Yamagata, had left to go out of Fukushima because of the nuclear power plant accident. Then it was really a lonely battle for us.I took care of the elderly evacuees from the nursing facility and transferred them to Date Fureai Center. Because of the shortage of the human resources and the first-aid materials there, we couldn't take care of them as much as we wished. I felt really sorry for them.One of the reasons we couldn't do what we could have done was the radioactive contamination. I felt "bitterness" but had no place or no one to vent on.

    Abstract: On the next day after the whole night duty, I provided the instruction for taking iodine preparation to the evacuees at Fukushima High School who might be exposed to radiation. Since I didn't know much about iodine, I checked through the Internet to collect the information about it. After finishing delivering iodine preparation to children, the entire relief team went to Nihonmatsu to go through the body contamination screenings. It was the anxiety what happened to come, but it was the day with valuable experiences.

  • Looking back on the relief activities in the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami disaster
    Author: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: Our team conducted relief activities at Azuma Gymnasium evacuation center, accepting 28 bedridden patients from the hospital located in the evacuation zone near the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. I never forget what I saw in the buses when they arrived. Unfortunately upon medical examination, three of them were confirmed dead. Four patients were transferred by ambulance to the Fukushima Red Cross Hospital.After the nuclear power plant accident, no supports from other prefectures were available, but the help from the Kanagawa Red Cross DMAT encouraged us. They said that "This is definitely our obligation to help you even after the nuclear accident," and these words remain in my heart since then. I realized I should not forget my mission as a Japanese Red Cross staff in any circumstances.

    Author: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: On March 16th at the evacuation center at Azuma Gymnasium, it was my very first opportunity working as a member of the relief team. At the evacuation center, there were long queues of people who were waiting for the body contamination screenings.When it was getting dark, we were informed that some patients were on their way from the Futaba Hospital so we started preparing for accepting them. While bringing them into the evacuation center with the help from the Japan Self-Defense Force, I called them out individually, "It is all right now", but most of them couldn't even respond to me. I did all that I could do as a relief team member, while remembering what I was taught in training. When we finished, it was past midnight. Early next morning, my husband brought me a change of clothes and breakfast. I heartily felt how good it was to have a family.Later on I started practicing dance, and now I occasionally visit care facilities as a volunteer to perform dancing.

  • Fukushima Summer
    Author: International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, and Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: Sep.11,2012 marks 18 months since the triple disaster hit Japan's Tohoku region. JRCS and IFRC have produced this short documentary movie. 'Fukushima Summer,' which focused on the life of an 11-year-old girl who lives in Fukushima. People in the area are still making use of scanning equipment, provided by the Red Cross, to check radiation levels in food and in their own bodies and permanent homes are just starting to be rebuilt. The film follows the girl to a Red Cross summer camp in the northern island of Hokkaido for children from all over the disaster area. Here children gain strength from their experiences and learn to help their communities on the road to recovery.

  • Guidelines for Domestic Facilitation and Regulation of International Disaster Relief and Initial Recovery Assistance
    Author: International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
    Abstract: Even developed countries may need international support when a major disasters strikes. Unfortunately, few governments have adequate systems in place to facilitate and regulate outside relief. The purpose of IDRL (International Disaster Response Law) Guidelines is to contribute to national legal preparedness by providing guidance to countries interested in improving their domestic legal, policy and institutional frameworks concerning international disaster relief and initial recovery assistance.

  • Medical relief activities by our hospital in the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami disaster
    Author: Fukushima Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: Dr. Watanabe, Deputy Director General of the Fukushima Red Cross Hospital, reviewed the activities for about 1 month after the earthquake, and summarized lessons learned to be utilized for future activities.(1) It is important to quickly and accurately grasp the number of inpatients and empty beds, and the status of the damages to the staff at the facility.(2) The annual training for disaster medical response was useful and our entire staff had a clear understanding of what to do.(3) Need to upgrade the emergency back-up power generator to support X-ray instruments and elevators during a power failure period.(4) Food for the inpatients and the staff are essential and therefore having an in-house kitchen staff and a kitchen facility is desirable.(5) Since both the satellite phones and the Red Cross Radio Communication System were not functioning, a reliable communication method in a disaster situation needs to be reconsidered.(6) Per ordered from the Fukushima Chapter, we withdrew from Hamadori. All the relief teams from other prefectures had gone home, and no replacements were coming. The possibility of the evacuees being exposed to radiation to the point that decontamination was necessary was small. Therefore, the activities could have been continued with necessary preparation such as the protective suits and dosimeters.(7) There were issues on the responses to the radiation exposure. By all means, securing the staff’s safety is most important.(8) The medical institutions having nuclear power plants in their residing prefecture, and the Japanese Red Cross Society National Headquarters need to hold workshops on radiation exposure and the training for radiation emergency medical care, so that we can prepare and properly perform the medical activities in these kind of emergencies.

  • Notice Regarding on the Guideline
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: In May 2013, the Japanese Red Cross Society developed "Manual for Relief Activities under Nuclear Disasters” based on lessons learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. The manual refers to a cumulative limit radiation dose during relief activities (up to one week) by a relief team member as 1mSv.Since JRCS's relief activities are basically within a week per team, they can conduct activities even in most of the area called "difficult-to-return zones" in Fukushima if they follow this manual. (Even in the area where dose of radiation exceeds 50 mSv/year = 9.59.5 μSv/h, cumulated dose getting from 24 hrs x 4 days activity will be 0.912 mSv)

  • Report on Assessment Mission to the Areas Affected by the Chernobyl Disaster, U.S.S.R.
    Author: International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
    Abstract: This document is a report on assessment of the areas affected by the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant accident, which was conducted by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in January 1990. This assessment mission included delegates from Japan, the U.K., Sweden, the Netherlands and West Germany (at the time) and they implemented the mission for eight days.Many people are still living in the contaminated areas and have some psychological anxieties. Regarding the health effects that they suffered, the released radiation was blamed for all of their physical disorders because there was lack of medical data and healthcare professionals had no scientific knowledge about radiation. It was pointed out in the report that this perception was wrong and mainly responsible for increasing their psychological anxieties. In 1990, four years after the nuclear accident, the mission focused on the increasing number of thyroid cancer cases.This report proposes to provide accurate information and better counseling to the survivors in order to alleviate their sufferings caused by some problems which still exist. The report also makes recommendations that it is important for the IFRC to offer opportunities to learn lessons from the Chernobyl accident experience in cooperation with scientists in and out of the Soviet Union and international organizations.

    Author: Nagahama Red Cross Hospital
    Abstract: This content is about an essay contributed by a staff member who worked at the headquarters of disaster control (HDC) of the Japanese Red Cross Nagahama Hospital during the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami:"The most important role of the HDC was to gather information. Our hospital set up the HDC right after the outset of the earthquake. However, the infrastructure in the affected area was completely disrupted during the disaster and the Internet access and mobile phones were disconnected there. In such a case, we had to gather and compile information and convey as much accurate information as possible to the relief teams in the field. We were able to figure out the situation of our first relief team dispatched to Soma City. However, it seemed that there was the lack of collaboration among the relief teams in the field. That situation prevented us from making a quick decision on mobilization of our second and third relief teams, and this imposed a burden on our first relief team. This experience made me realize the importance of the role and decision-making capabilities of the HDC."

    Abstract: This content is about an essay contributed by one of the second relief team members from the Japanese Red Cross Nagahama Hospital. The team arrived at the JRCS Fukushima Chapter but made a decision to leave Fukushima without providing relief activities. They made the decision by referring to other chapters' decision and the air radiation levels in the affected area:"We traveled to Fukushima by measuring air radiation dose. We expected to be exposed to only a small amount of radiation and we understood that we could protect thyroid gland from being exposed to radiation by taking stable iodine tablets. However, possibilities of the accident status to worse made us fear strongly. We arrived at the JRC Fukushima Chapter. However, because the relief teams from other chapters decided to leave Fukushima due to high air radiation doses, we made a decision to leave Fukushima without providing relief activities. On the way back to our hospital, we measured air radiation doses at services plazas and rest areas along the expressway for assisting teams that might be dispatched after our team. I thought that the Red Cross should develop its guidelines for possible future nuclear and radiological emergencies."

The team arrived at the JRC Fukushima Chapter but made a decision to leave Fukushima without providing relief activities. They made the decision by referring to other chapters' decision and the air radiation levels in the affected area:"All of our relief team members took potassium iodine tablets and learned how to use radiation measuring devices before leaving for Fukushima. We traveled to the affected area by measuring air radiation doses. The warning beeper of the device was so loud that the feeling of fear was overwhelming. A relief team from the JRC Yamagata Chapter was already in Fukushima before us. They decided to leave Fukushima due to high radiation levels. We thought that a choice to leave Fukushima would betray people of Fukushima but made a decision to leave there after having a discussion among the relief team members. I felt that relief team members should need to receive training if they provide activities in an environment contaminated by radiation.

    Author: Red Cross Nuclear Disaster Resource Center
    Abstract: The First Red Cross Nuclear Disaster Seminar was held on December 2, 2013 at the Japanese Red Cross Society National Headquarters. In this seminar two experts gave keynote presentations.The first presenter was Dr. Makoto Akashi, Executive Director of the National Institute of Radiological Sciences (NIRS). In his presentation entitled “Radiation Medicine in Japan”, Dr. Akashi provided some basic knowledge of radiation, the radiation emergency medicine system in Japan and how NIRS responded to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident. The next presenter was Dr. Yoichi Watanabe, Deputy Director General of the Fukushima Red Cross Hospital. In his presentation entitled “Relief Activities Conducted by the Japanese Red Cross Society after the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant Accident and the Challenges for the Future”, Dr. Watanabe presented information about the relief activities by the Japanese Red Cross relief teams and Fukushima Red Cross Hospital, in addition to the constraints posed by the nuclear accident. Furthermore, he raised issues about how the Japanese Red Cross Society should respond to a similar situation in the future.Following the keynote presentations, a video message was shown from Mr. Kazuhiko Amano, Director of Tomioka Odagaisama Center for Supporting Reconstruction of Victims' Living.

    Author: International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies
    Abstract: 10 years after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) was reviewed and its future orientation was determined. The Federation programme began in 1990. From 1992 the six MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) had been screening the populations at risk (the capacity of about 60,000 per year), with results that increasingly confirmed the link between the disaster and the growing number of cases of thyroid cancer in children. On the other hand many of illnesses recorded by MDLs were more likely to be attributed to lack of medical care and bad nutrition. During the Autumn of 1995, milk powder and multivitamins funded by ECHO (European Community Humanitarian aid Office) were distributed for children.

    Abstract: Screening by the MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) had contributed to identifying a huge increase in thyroid cancer among children, directly attributable to the Chernobyl nuclear accident. The Federation and ECHO (European Community Humanitarian aid Office) jointly proposed the plan of actions; (1) expansion of screening of thyroid cancer, (2) distributing milk powder and multi-vitamins to children, (3) implementing psycho-social programme for populations living in contaminated areas. The proposal was approved by the International Chernobyl Co-ordination Committee (ICCC). The Federation was seeking further funding for this programme.

    Abstract: The assistance in 1998 to victims of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster focused on screening for thyroid gland pathologies, particularly in children and young people (the highest risk group), and on psycho-social support. The funds, total CHF 1,300,000 were needed to enable the programme's six mobile laboratories to screen 90,000 people in 1998, and to expand the reach of the psycho-social support throughout Belarus and introduce it into Ukraine.The Federation was willing to support the financial level at that time for 1998-2000, then started withdrawing step by step. For the long term stability, however, the three National Societies and Governments had to prepare for financial responsibility during that time.

    Abstract: CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) emphasized on increasing the number of medical check-ups, with a focus on thyroid gland examinations, and improving and expanding psycho-social assistance to the population. The provision of multivitamins for children and levothyroxine medicaments for people with thyroid gland pathologies was a important part of CHARP activities.However, the programme is facing a severe shortage of fund. CHARP required about 1,500,000 CHF per year to maintain the scale of activities. ECHO (European Community Humanitarian aid Office) had to stop funding due to their internal regulation. German RC agreed to host an urgent meeting of donors to discuss the situation.

    Abstract: According to the latest scientific research, even low doses of radiation can cause multiple changes in human DNA. Researchers found “an unexpectedly high increase” in mutations among children born after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) carried out medical examination over 90,000 people in 2001, and detected 106 thyroid gland cancers comparing with 8 cases in 1997.CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) funding in 2001 did not allow to fulfill all the objectives. No L-thyroxine supply due to lack of funds. The Federation and the National Societies needed to assess the funding situation to set more realistic objectives.

    Abstract: CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) continued to focus on thyroid gland screening. Effective medical, social and psychological support was provided by six MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories). However, due to a lack of funding, some activities had not been implemented.A Netherlands Red Cross consultant conducted a review of the programme. It concluded that, even in the reduced extent (limited to the screening for thyroid gland cancer), the programme was relevant. It was complimentary to the health system which public services were not capable of covering needs.

    Abstract: Until Nov in 2004, the six MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) checked 79,876 people. Among them abnormal scans were detected in 32,610 people (41%).Since primary health care was rather limited in the remote rural areas, the laboratory doctors carried out the diagnosis and treatment of other ailments upon complaints of patients or results of clinic tests. At present, this activity was ranging from about 20% to 50% of all MDL works. There was the difficulty in fulfilling the target plan for examination of 90,000 people per year because in some villages only a few representatives of target group (0-18 years old at the time of accident) were resident.

    Abstract: The funding situation improved after the donation of 1 million EURO by the Dutch National Postcode Lottery (DNPL). To keep "Chernobyl" on the global agenda was an important international element of the Federation’s work.Six MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) checked 89,371 people for thyroid cancer and doctors detected 43,909 of abnormal scans. With 215 of these patients, thyroid cancer was confirmed. The detection of thyroid cancer was improved in 2004 partly because the training on performing biopsies and ultrasound specialist professional advancement courses were provided to MDL personnel.

    Abstract: The thyroid screening only of the target group (age 0-18 at time of the disaster) was not quite reasonable at remote areas. Two thirds of thyroid cancer cases have been detected in older age group.In March, a mid-term evaluation of the programme was carried out. One of the most important recommendations of the evaluation were, thyroid screening target group should be enlarged to age 0-40 at the time of disaster. The funding situation for the programme in 2006 and onwards was not secure. Therefore, it was necessary to draw attention of the international community.

    Abstract: The Appeal 2006-2007 aimed to revitalize donors’ interest and to seek international support to continue the programme. In 2006, it was the twentieth anniversary of the Chernobyl accident.The thyroid cancer incidence rate in the affected area was on average 16 times higher than that in not affected area by a nuclear accident.After 15 years of programming, the Red Cross and Red Crescent had accumulated unique practical expertise. It was highlighted the important role of RCs in the preparedness for and response to technological disasters. This expertise was available to others.The approach for 2006-2007 was to continue providing screening for thyroid cancer for the individuals who were 40 years old or under at the time of the disaster. The special task of this was to identify as early as possible thyroid gland cancer, to ensure early enough appropriate treatment to safe lives.

    Abstract: The pathology confirmed to be attributed to the accident’s radiation exposure was a large increase in thyroid cancer. In this year, the specialists of six MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) referred 10,055 patients to medical institutions for in-depth examination. In 221 patients, the suspected thyroid cancer cases were confirmed. For the early detection, fine needle biopsies at the MDLs in the field were introduced. In Belarus and Ukraine, MDL Specialists perform the biopsies themselves. Russia, however, local legislation prevented MDL doctors from performing biopsies in the field. Therefore the Diagnostic Centre in Russia sent their specialists to the areas where the MDL was operating.

    Abstract: Chernobyl Co-ordination Committee (ICCC) meeting was held in July in the Russian Red Cross sanatorium. The main topics discussed in the meeting were; Activities, achievements and lessons learnt from Chernobyl Program, Funding trends/sustainability of the programme, National Society activities regarding further increase of local input , and How are the National Societies going to continue the programme after the Federation’s possible phase out at the end of 2008.The leaders of the National Societies stressed at the meeting that it was quite difficult to provide an increase of local funding. However the National Societies were not going to close the Programme after 2008. Therefore, it was decided to act both ways: to seek the international support and try to increase the local input.

    Abstract: 2006 was the 20th anniversary of Chernobyl accident. in connection with the anniversary, the Red Cross National Societies organized a number of high level round-table meetings, press conferences and other commemorating events.In November 2007, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which calls for continuing attention to "Chernobyl" and proclaims the third decade (2006-2016) as a decade of "recovery and sustainable development". Theresolution recognizes "the contribution of the Red Cross Societies of most affected countries and the IFRC.The data collected by the RC MDLs (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratories) showed still a high incidence rate of thyroid illnesses. Therefore CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) would continue on the same conceptual basis, i.e., thyroid screening, psychosocial support, and the distribution of multivitamins to children. Also as the results of the research on what else could be included in the programme’s objectives, breast cancer screening was included in the appeal for 2008-2009.

    Abstract: Despite the clear indicators showing a dramatic increase in thyroid cancer, donor interest for this unique Red Cross programme had steadily declined.For sustainability, CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) strategy was handing over more programme responsibilities to the National Societies and gradually integrating its activities into the respective health care systems. it was planned to include HIV/AIDS preventive activities into CHARP. Though this disease is not directly linked with the Chernobyl disaster, the MDL (Mobile Diagnostic Laboratory) teams could give people important information on HIV and carry out necessary blood testing.This programme was seen as a model for training the staff working within the sphere of medical screening and for organizing mobile medical service.

    Abstract: in spite of 25 years after Chernobyl accident the health consequences of this disaster remained serious. Therefore in 2012, CHARP (Chernobyl Humanitarian Assistance and Rehabilitation Programme) should operate on same conceptual basis. In accordance with the UN Action Plan on Chernobyl, CHARP should be continued at least until 2016. However it might be more and more difficult to raise international support for the programme. Therefore the IFRC together with the 3 National Societies would have to consider how to further increase local input, and how to gradually hand over to the governmental health care system.

  • Three years on from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami: “Preparedness for nuclear disasters”
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: The video introduces how the JRCS is trying to enhance the ability to respond to nuclear disasters based on lessons that they learned from the Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami.When the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident occurred, the JRCS relief teams deployed in Fukushima were forced to withdraw temporarily. From that experience, the JRCS prepared “Manual for Relief Activities under Nuclear Disasters” and provided nuclear disaster training workshops for relief team members of 92 Japanese Red Cross hospitals across the nation. Through these actions taken, the JRCS was able to establish a system to conduct relief activities during a nuclear disaster while the safety of JRCS relief team members is being confirmed. The JRCS will continue to work on the next level action.In order to make use of the experiences and lessons from the nuclear power plant accident, the JRCS established the Red Cross Nuclear Disaster Resource Center. Furthermore, it is working on preparedness for nuclear disasters. These activities are funded by international donations from the Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and others around the world.

She goes on to say, "Through my round, I recognized again the importance of providing mid- and long-term psychological care.

  • JRCS Health Consultation Program for People Who Evacuated from Namie Town (Timeline webpage)
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: Due to the effects from the radiation release caused by the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, Municipality of Namie Town relocated its municipal office to Nihonmatsu City. Temporary housing for their citizens were also built there and the neighboring areas. However, many of the evacuees from Namie chose to live in Iwaki where the climate is similar to that of Namie Town. For these people who are living in rental houses in Iwaki City rented by Fukushima Prefecture, there are very few places where they can get together and this has caused their isolation. Furthermore, the stalled public health services for them by the Namie municipal government facilitated the anxieties of these people. At the request of Namie Town, the Japanese Red Cross Society (JRCS) provides a health consultation program for the evacuees who are living in Iwaki City. Japanese Red Cross hospital nurses across Japan and faculty members of the Japanese Red Cross College of Nursing work on the program in turn. They visit their homes in Iwaki City to figure out their health conditions and provide health consultation and psycosocial care for the people who are living in an environment they are not familiar to.In this content, the JRCS health consultation program activities are chronologically organized and the relevant news posted on the JRCS website are introduced.

  • I want to let other people know the hardship of being unable to return home suffered by the Namie people. -Health consultation program for people evacuated from Namie-
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: From June 9 to July 4, 2014, Kazumi Kawano, a nurse from the Japanese Red Cross Fukuoka Hospital, worked on the health consultation program. She says, “I met the people for the first time, but they talked to me without being distrustful of me. I realized this was because the JRCS has been involved in this health consultation program over a long period of time and the PR activities have been allowing the results of the program to be recognized little by little among the people from Namie.” She felt, “It may be difficult for people living in other areas to understand the suffering of the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami. Back in Fukuoka, I want to tell other people that the evacuation lives of the people from Namie are not over yet.”

  • We built a new house in Iwaki, but still want to return to our hometown. -Health consultation program for people evacuated from Namie-
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: From July 7 to August 8, 2014, Tomomi Ogasawara, a nurse from the Hachinohe Red Cross Hospital, worked on the health consultation program. Many people who had evacuated Namie to Iwaki built new houses in Iwaki. However, Ms. Ogasawara heard many of them saying, “We keep thinking about the house we left in Namie and sometimes go back there to clean the house,” or “we want to return to Namie if it becomes possible.” On the other hand, for other Namie people who are living in places other than Iwaki, they have no person to visit them, and less assistance reaches these evacuees.

    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: From September 16 to October 10, 2014, Mieko Tezuka, a nurse from the Nasu Red Cross Hospital, worked on the health consultation program. A husband and wife Ms. Tezuka visited openly shared their experiences with her. That was very impressive to her. Another elderly lady told her over the phone that 'I can’t talk to you because my daughter always tells me not to speak with strangers.' However the conversation continued for about 30 more minutes. This example demonstrates ‘listening’ is still required by the people as part of the JRCS health consultation program.

    Abstract: The area of Hisanohama Elementary School of Iwaki City was located within the 30km radius from the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. However, the Municipality of Iwaki made an independent decision and asked the residents there for voluntary evacuation soon after the nuclear accident. Then the elementary school gave children classes by renting some space of other elementary school in the city. In October 2011, they returned to their school building and restarted classes there. Before that, decontamination of the school premises was performed and radiation levels were measured to prove safety in specific values, and then the environment was in place for children to study again in the school. The efforts for children's safety are still continued.

    Abstract: About 2,000 people from Namie Town are living in Iwaki City under evacuation conditions. Mr. Watanabe, one of them, returns to Namie once a week to take care of white pine trees on his home premises. The life in the evacuation place is not necessarily easy, partly because his wife was hospitalized due to changes in the living environment. Ms. Naomi Nakagawa, a nurse from a Red Cross hospital, visited Mr. and Mrs. Watanabe for a health consultation program for people from Namie. Ms. Nakagawa says, "people from Namie are living in Iwaki by not telling their neighbors that they are from Namie, and that makes them live under stress." Mr. Watanabe says, "Our home is in Namie, but we can't return there because of the radiation effects. The compensations that we are receiving from the government are not unjust privileges. We try to get our neighbors understand that, but it will take time."

  • Three years after the earthquake: Satsuko Takezawa's Story
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: Ms. Satsuko Takezawa from Shinchi Town lost her home that was washed out by the tsunami and lived in a temporary housing. A few months ago, she moved to a public housing for affected elderly people built by assistance from Red Cross international donation. Back at the temporary housing, the sound of a small bell she used to cling every morning during a Buddhist prayer was transmitted to her neighbors' units because the wall was thin. She says that she no longer needs to be worried about that at a new housing and she can live a comfortable life. To construct this kind of housing, it takes time to decide which land should be used and to coordinate acquisition of the land with communities, which is one of the main reasons for delay in the reconstruction process. The municipality officials say that this kind of housing is certainly necessary but facilities for nursing and care will also be needed.

Those activities will be conducted mainly by JRCS chapters in the affected areas and will be continued by at least 2017.

  • Narrating the Risks of Radiation (Division of Radiotherapy, The Department of Radiology,The University of Tokyo Hospital)
    Author: Division of Radiotherapy, The Department of Radiology, The University of Tokyo Hospital
    Abstract: This book summarizes the interviews of the three experts who have been communicating with local residents in Fukushima after the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident to explain the health risk of radiation exposure. Before 3.11, there were no mechanisms, procedures or even preparation of mind to respond to a severe accident. Therefore, in order to learn and study how to find the better ways to respond to a severe accident, these interviews were planned. The three experts have been thinking and trying to come up with ideas about what kind of information and how they should provide to the local residents by putting themselves in residents’ shoes.

    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: From April 6 to 24, 2015, Mr. Makoto Hattori from Japanese Red Cross Narita Hospital and Ms. Kazumi Nishimura from Saitama Red Cross Hospital worked on the health consultation program. From this round, JRCS nurses who work on the health consultation program receive a special lecture to understand more about the current situation of the people of Namie before they are dispatched. The JRCS is making efforts to provide a closer assistance for them.Mr. Hattori says that by hearing from people saying more often: "I have no problem now." or "I am fine," I felt they are trying to overcome their difficulties and live positively by having their new living basis here. When Ms. Nishimura provided health consultation to the people of Namie, she told each of them: “The JRCS and Japanese people never forget about you.” She looks back on her term and says with expectations, “Hopefully the message will encourage them to be positive or keep going.”

  • JRCS nurses learn how people of Namie really feel through door-to-door visits -Health consultation program for people evacuated from Namie-
    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: From June 8 to July 3, 2015, Ms. Yuka Sato from Japanese Red Cross Akita Hospital and Ms. Yoko Doi from Japanese Red Cross Sendai Hospital worked on the health consultation program. Looking back at her activities that were conducted for nearly a month, Ms. Sato reflects, “Health consultation by JRCS nurses and public health nurses, who are professional personnel, allows the people of Namie to pour out their feelings that they would otherwise keep to themselves. By talking, I think they can reduce their stress and prevent physical symptoms that are caused by mental suffering from worsening.” Ms. Doi emphasized, “It takes time for them to relieve psychological distress caused by the earthquake and the nuclear accident. My involvement in the program made me recognize again that the length of time to recover varies from person to person.”

    Author: Japanese Red Cross Society
    Abstract: From July 6 to August 7, 2015, Ms. Tomoko Kono, a chief nurse from the Japanese Red Cross Kyoto Daiichi Hospital worked on the health consultation program. She is an instructor for the JRCS psychosocial care program and knows well the importance of listening to people who are suffering. During her participation in the program, she dedicated herself to listening to the people from Namie by visiting them at their homes in Iwaki. Ms. Kono looks back at her one-month duty and says: “If I had not come here and spoken personally with the evacuees, I never would have understood the reality that they are facing. Working on the program convinced me that one of the JRCS’s roles is to convey to the wider public what happened at the time of the earthquake and tsunami as well as the perspective of the evacuees from Namie.”

    Abstract: This content refers to Chapter 1 which is part of the Nuclear and Radiological Emergency Guidelines - Preparedness, Response and Recovery - developed by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Socieites. The IFRC Guidelines were developed after the adoption of a resolution at the IFRC General Assembly in 2011, the same year of the Fukushima Daiichi accident. The resolution urged the national and international components of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement to take on a greater role in preparedness and response for radiological and nuclear emergencies. The purpose of the IFRC Guidelines is to support the RCRC Societies in preparing measures to help people affected by nuclear and radiological emergencies and response plans. The IFRC Guidelines also include information necessary to prepare such measures and plans.

Recovery assistance activities support recovering local communities. The activities begin to provide assistance for affected populations during the response phase and continue for a long period even after the response phase is over. Recovery programs aim to reconstruct the survivors’ lifestyle patterns to those before the emergency occurred. The programs are also aimed at protecting and reconstructing their livelihoods. The programs need to take into consideration complex factors such as damage spreading to other areas, prolongation of effects and evacuation in addition to concerns about health problems.

    Abstract: Ms. Akiko Nakamura from the Japanese Red Cross Karatsu Hospital was involved in the program from October 26 to November 27, 2015. A mother in her 30’s told Ms. Nakamura her thought: “I will cherish my sons whose lives were protected.”When the Great East Japan Earthquake occurred, her older son who was an elementary school boy took his younger brother’s hand quickly and rushed together to take cover under a "kotatsu." A days later the mother and her sons evacuated to an empty lot in their neighborhood. Three junior high school girl students who happened to pass by the lot, hugged younger son gently until the mother went to home then came back. Younger son said, "Everyone protected me." The mother said pleasantly: “I will nurture my children, who will create the future, by always remembering my feeling of gratitude for protecting my sons.”
