Inside the subway

Hold on
  • Do not fall down as tightly grabbing the handle because a great shock can come around.
  • Behave calmly according to the cabin announcement.
  • Inside of the subway is relatively safe. It is dangerous to run outsid a hurry even when the subway stops, due to an earthquake.
  • Inside of the subway cabin is equipped with the emergency light to be immediately turned on in case of blackout, so running hurriedly toward the exit is the most dangerous behavior and is the cause of a great confusion.

Inside the station

Don't lose your composure!
  • The subway station is set up to immediately turn on the emergency light although the blackout occurs; therefore, do not get confused, but behave calmly according to the station guidance announcement or the guidance by the station staff.
  • Since the subway station is a place where many people gather, behave calmly not to bring about a great confusion.

Inside the elevator

Don't lose your composure!
  • When experiencing an earthquake inside the elevator, push the button and get off rapidly and evacuate when the elevator stops.
  • In case locked inside the elevator, contact the station office through the interphone and ask for help.
  • When an earthquake occurs, do not use the elevator.
  • When an earthquake of three-degree intensity occurs, the subway temporarily stops its operation.
  • An earthquake ends in one minute at the longest (about 15 seconds for a strong shock), so find a safe location at the present place.
