Joint Exercises for Civil Protection Implemented by the National and Local Governments

In order to implement civil protection measures against unexpected emergencies, such as armed attack situations, in an appropriate and prompt way, people need to be well trained under normal circumstances. Article 42 of the Civil Protection Law stipulates the details for implementation of exercises.
The national government implements drills for civil protection (map exercises*1 and training exercises*2) in cooperation with local governments. We expect that repeated exercises will help people deepen their understanding of civil protection.

*1 Map exercises: Methods to give exercises on maps for Task Force activities and work at the Task Force Head Office of the national and local governments
*2 Training exercises: Methods to give on-site exercises to participating residents and the national and local governments under simulated conditions
