In response to the increasing number of deaths due to heat stroke in Japan due to the effects of climate change, the revised Climate Change Adaptation Act was enacted in April 2020 to further strengthen heat stroke countermeasures. It was fully implemented in April 2016.

The revised Climate Change Adaptation Act creates a “special heatstroke alert” to be issued when there is a risk of serious health damage, and also allows municipal mayors to designate designated heat evacuation facilities (cooling shelters). .

Handa City has been in the process of designating public facilities since May, and is looking for private facilities that can cooperate as cooling shelters to prevent health damage caused by heat stroke and protect everyone’s lives and health. We are looking forward to applications from private facilities that would like to cooperate with Handa City in preventing heatstroke!
