Miyoshi City, Japan, February 11, 2014 /3BL Media/ - Miyoshi City and Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) signed an agreement here to strengthen coordination of disaster aid activities.  The agreement forms part of Toyota's ongoing commitment to working with local stakeholders to create disaster-resilient communities.

Toyota will work with Miyoshi City in Aichi Prefecture to provide humanitarian assistance and regional recovery support through: 1) post-disaster rescue and relief; 2) provision of temporary evacuation sites following a major disaster; 3) provision of food, drinking water, and other daily necessities; 4) cargo handling assistance at Miyoshi City relief supply facilities; and 5) assistance in planning local recovery activities.  Toyota will also exchange disaster-related information with the city government to facilitate implementation of support measures.

At the signing ceremony held at Miyoshi City Hall, Miyoshi City Mayor Kenji Onoda said: "As we prepare for possible future disasters, we are grateful for this disaster aid agreement with Toyota which provides reassurance to our city."  TMC Senior Managing Officer Naoki Miyazaki stated: "Toyota is proud to fulfill its role as a local business by helping Miyoshi achieve its goals of becoming a safer, more self-dependant city, where people can live with peace of mind.  We will provide all possible support in the event of a disaster."

Through the agreement, which follows a similar agreement with Toyota City made in October 2013, Toyota aims to contribute to the recovery and disaster preparedness of the region with a concentration of Toyota plants (including Toyota City and Miyoshi City) through stronger collaboration and cooperation between local businesses and municipalities.

As disasters can cause large-scale damage to communities, company operations and supply chains, Toyota is reorganizing its business continuity management systems and bolstering its preparedness for potential large-scale natural disasters based on the idea that post-disaster humanitarian support and rapid regional recovery systems are indispensable.
