Village House Led an Exercise on Earthquake Preparedness for The First Time with Its Foreign Residents in Japan


Japan is considerably an earthquake-prone region. Thus, the Village House Vietnamese Customer Service Team in Kato City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, led an earthquake preparedness event for its Vietnamese residents—who are not as familiar as the native Japanese population with response protocols—to educate this growing community on how best to manage in the event of an earthquake.
