Abstract

This chapter covers the emergency countermeasures for immediate response actually taken in the government sector. Many citizens outside the affected region from Japan and all over the world, as well as many NPOs and NGOs, have been providing relief and rescue operations right after the occurrence of the 3.11 disaster, and many overseas governments have also provided relief personnel and supplies. This section covers only those organized by the Japanese central and local governments for the initial disaster countermeasures.
