    That is a very important question! First of all, I would suggest getting the “Disaster Preparedness Tokyo App”:

    It has great information and alerts. Even if you do not live in Tokyo, it is useful. There are other apps for general alerts, but the one above has good guides and is in multiple languages.

    You should also secure furniture in your house, so it does not fall.

    But the most important part for people with disabilities is registering with your city and asking about their disaster planning. For example, in my city the residents with disabilities are checked on first in case of a disaster because we can register our address. Also, many cities have a rental emergency button you can place in your house.

    Hopefully that is a good start. Does anyone else have any advice?
