Taiwan Observes National Disaster Prevention Day|9點21分國家級警報簡訊 10點海嘯警報


Taiwan observes National Disaster Prevention Day every year on Sept. 21. This year, President Tsai Ing-wen traveled to Tainan to participate in earthquake preparedness drills. Phone users in Taiwan all got warning about an earthquake at 9:21 a.m.


It's 9:21 a.m., and a national level text message is sent to mobile phones warning about an earthquake and telling people to duck, take cover, and stay still. Some phones use sounds to inform users. At 10 a.m., a tsunami warning was sent out by the anti-aircraft defense warning system.

At 10:59 a.m., all cable TV channels cut their programming and switched to Public Television Service at the request of the Ministry of the Interior for a disaster prevention information broadcast.

Today is National Disaster Prevention Day. We are conducting a national-level disaster prevention drill. Right now, we are simulating an emergency situation and using multiple channels to help the public grasp information quickly and respond accordingly.

Sept. 21 is National Disaster Prevention Day in Taiwan. President Tsai Ing-wen traveled to the Xinhua Branch of Affiliated School for Students with Hearing Impairments of National University of Tainan to participate in earthquake preparedness drills. As soon as the warning was issued, students calmly sought cover and moved to assigned evacuation zones. Tsai told teachers and students that Taiwan is located in a seismic zone and is often pummeled by typhoons. However, as long as the proper preparations are made, Taiwan will be able to respond accordingly to any disaster.

I want to give everyone the highest praise. After you get home, you can share this knowledge with your families and help disaster preparedness to become a part of our everyday lives.

Tsai also said disaster preparedness education needs to be fully implemented everywhere, especially in schools for those with special needs. This isn't easy, as it requires extra attention, effort, and planning. She said she expects everyone to continue putting in effort, so that campuses can provide the safest education environments to students.



上午9點21分一到,手機簡訊發出國家級警報,有的還會以語音告知,要民眾配合演練,趴下、掩護、穩住地震保命三步驟,10點一到還有防空警報系統發布海嘯警報。

內政部也在10點59分時,要求有線系統業者、同步切換到公視頻道,播放地震演練訊息。

總統 蔡英文表示:「今天是921國家防災日,我們辦理國家級防災演習。現在就是在模擬應變的狀況,在第一時間,透過多元的管道,讓民眾能夠掌握準確的訊息迅速應變。」

國家防災日,總統蔡英文來到台南大學附屬啟聰學校新化分校,出席地震避難掩護演練,當地震即時警報響起時,學生都能就地掩蔽到撤離到疏散地點,表現很冷靜。蔡英文告訴在場師生,台灣位於地震帶又常常受到颱風侵襲,但只要做好準備,就能因應災害的發生。

總統 蔡英文表示:「我要給大家比一個大大的讚,回到家以後,也可以把這些知識,分享給我們的家人。讓防災的態度,落實在我們日常生活當中。」

蔡英文認為,防災教育、尤其是特殊學校更要充分落實,這做起來不容易,需要更細的心思、更周全的規劃,因此期許大家繼續努力,讓學校成為防災校園,讓孩子們有最安全的學習環境。
