We went on a field trip – Day 4

We went on a field trip to Akita City on May 29th.

The destinations of the trip were the Akita Prefectural Fire-Defense and Disaster Prevention Air Corps and the INPEX Corporation. At the Akita Prefectural Fire-Defense and Disaster Prevention Air Corps, we listened to a presentation on the roles of the Air Corps in dealing with and preventing disasters as well as on the cooperative arrangements they have with other organizations, which included some sample cases.

They also showed us their disaster-prevention-purpose helicopter.
