The ACCJ, the Tokyo American Club (TAC), and the U.S. Embassy Tokyo, will hold an information session with officials from the U.S. Embassy, including Deputy Chief of Mission Jason P. Hyland. The session will teach participants how to be prepared for potential disasters and explain the support that the U.S. Embassy can provide to American citizens during a disaster. Representatives from the Tokyo Fire Department and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government will also be on hand to discuss municipal-level support.
