Test of Disaster Prevention Speakers -- "8,800,000 Osaka people Drill"

2016-9-5 (Mon) 11:15 -

In order to guarantee a means of communicating information in case of a large scale disaster, Osaka University has set up wireless "disaster prevention speakers" at major locations on its campuses.

Thus, on September 5, as part of the "5th 8,800,000 Osaka people Drill" (sponsored by Osaka Prefecture, Osaka City, and Sakai City), we will be conducting an actual test of those speakers, as outlined below, both to make people more aware of those speakers and to heighten people's awareness of disaster prevention.

We ask for your understanding and cooperation in this test.

1. Time of the announced Test

Monday, September 5 -- 11:15 a.m. (for about 30 seconds)
