I came across a great video to illustrate my point, the other day. It is of a zoo safety drill. A rhino has escaped and this is how you are supposed to handle it. PS- Note the number of legs the rhino has LOL
Japanese are known as a people who highly value safety. In general, they are a reserved culture and are always seeking to minimize risk both in government and private matters. Having experienced many disasters historically and being one of the most active places for earthquakes on the planet, I guess it is SAFE to say that nobody knows "safety and prevention" like the Japanese.
