Disaster Relief Volunteers
icon-navigation-arrow-right-main
It is known from the experience of Japan, a country with a long record of disaster prevention and relief,  that the coordinating ratio among self-help, mutual support, and public support is 7:2:1.This shows that the importance of self-help and mutual support between community members account for a considerable proportion when taken together. Therefore, it is very important to think about how to promote community disaster prevention. This is when we need disaster relief volunteers!Why are disaster relief volunteers needed?"Self-help, mutual support, cooperation" is their principle.Self-help: Becoming a disaster relief volunteer and gaining disaster prevention-related knowledge allows you not only to protect yourself, but also to achieve the aim of helping others.Mutual support: You can immediately lead disaster response after the disaster has occurred. This largely increases the chance of successful rescue.Cooperation: Assist relevant units in strengthening the communities' and civilians' autonomous disaster prevention capabilities; be a bridge between the government and citizens.What can disaster relief volunteers do?Before a disaster occurs: Assist relevant units in promoting disaster prevention among families, communities, and workplaces.When a disaster occurs: Assist in various response measures, including evacuations, disaster information reporting, and shelter management.After a disaster has occurred: Carry out aftermath restoration work, and guide external resources to assist in restoration and reconstruction.How do I become a disaster relief volunteer?Step One: To participate in the training course to become a disaster prevention specialist, one must have graduated from junior high school or a higher level of school, or hold equivalent academic qualifications.Step Two: After course completion, academic and technical examinations will be conducted. The technical test involves rescue subjects, such as basic first aid training and emergency rescue measures.Step Three: After passing the examinations, the Ministry of the Interior will issue a disaster relief volunteer certificate and badge. Congratulations to those who have become a member of the disaster prevention team!Where do I go to participate in disaster relief volunteer training? Please refer to the Disaster Prevention and Rescue Information Website of the National Fire Agency, Ministry of the Interior for information about disaster relief volunteer training in each county and city.

Disaster Prevention Park
icon-navigation-arrow-right-main
What is the definition of disaster prevention park?Usually, a disaster prevention park is like any other general park; it serves as a place for people to carry out recreational activities, exercises, and educational activities.In the event of a major disaster, it provides a safe space for evacuation so that secondary disasters can be avoided. A disaster prevention park needs to have sufficient outdoor space to shelter large numbers of disaster relief personnel, machines and equipment to be brought in, and groups of evacuated civilians. It serves as a foothold for disaster relief, restoration, and reconstruction. It is where disaster-affected civilians are guaranteed short-term shelter and basic life necessities; it also ensures smooth flow of traffic on disaster relief roads.When should I go to a disaster prevention park?When a large-scale earthquake occurs and the district office announces the opening of a disaster prevention park (or emergency shelter), and you think your house is no longer safe, it is recommended that you take your emergency kits (bug-out bags) with you and head to the nearest disaster prevention park (or emergency shelter) to gather with others and let government units carry out shelter arrangements.Where are disaster prevention parks in Taoyuan?Taoyuan currently has designated 20 disaster prevention parks, and each administrative district has at least 1!Taoyuan District: Jianguo Park, Yangming Park, Fenghe Park, Xiangyang Park, Shuixiu ParkBade District: Jiande Park, Danan ParkZhongli District: Wenhua Park, Zhongzheng ParkPingzhen District: Fuxing Family Park, Xinshi Park Luzhu District: Guangming Riverside ParkYangmei District: Puxin ParkLongtan District: Longtan Sports ParkGuishan District: Dahua ParkDaxi District: Daxi Puding ParkDayuan District: First Park, Intercity Bus Park, Taoyuan AerotropolisGuanyin District: Shulin ParkXinwu District: Zhaoling Temple ParkFuxing District: Jiaoban Mountain ParkWhat facilities are there in disaster prevention parks?Facilities are sorted into 3 categories.Red: Administrative management category - mainly related to the administrative management performed by the authorities (e.g., a district office) that set up the park.Orange: Disaster victims' daily living category - mainly related to the victims' short-term lives in shelters.Blue: Water facility category - mainly related to water resources. When using a floor map of a disaster prevention park, you can quickly find the facilities you need by referring to the categories!

What Is a Compound Disaster?
icon-navigation-arrow-right-main
What is a compound disaster?The occurrence of a major disaster often directly or indirectly creates other secondary disasters, forming a linked relationship between them. This is called a "compound disaster".The losses and damages caused by such disasters do not accumulate like addition, but multiply like in a geometric series.For example: The large tsunami triggered by the March 11 Fukushima Earthquake in Japan subsequently created a nuclear crisis.The most common compound disaster is typhoon and earthquake:The disaster in a typhoon itself: Wind damageTyphoon-generated disasters: Floods; debris flows/landslides; disasters involving public gas and oil pipelines and electricity transmission lines; air disasters; maritime disasters, traffic accidents on land, toxic chemical disasters.The disaster in an earthquake itself: Tsunamis, sloping-land disastersEarthquake-generated disasters: Fires; disasters involving public gas and oil pipelines and electricity transmission lines; traffic accidents on land; tsunamis leading to  nuclear and other catastrophes.How do I respond in a compound disaster?1.Understand how to coexist with disasters.2.Put disaster prevention awareness into practice in your daily life. For example: Prepare emergency kits (bug-out bags), participate in disaster drills, set up an evacuation plan with your family, etc.
