Tokyo Tech's Department of Chemistry and Department of Chemical Science and Engineering collaborate to offer master's students the Environment Preservation and Chemical Safety I and II courses. In the first and second quarters of AY2019, 210 students learned about the basics of safety on campus, medicine management methods, and crisis management. The course also included a hands-on first aid class that focused on the use of an automated external defibrillator and administration of cardiopulmonary resuscitation.

This course was developed based on guidance from the Tokyo Disaster Prevention and Emergency Medical Service Association, and was executed with the help of many disaster support volunteers from the Denenchofu area. It is clear that this course can boost the disaster prevention capabilities of the region, and I hope that, in the future, we can continue to develop youngsters who are ready and able to help in case a disaster strikes.
