œSaigai-yo Dengon Dial (Telephone message service during a disaster)(Tel 117)

 During a disaster, it is often difficult to make telephone calls to the affected area. At suchtimes, use the Saigai-yo Dengon Dial service

(telephone message service during a disaster). People outside the area can listen to recorded messages made by those within the

affected area regarding their safety, etc. It essentially is a voice message board. Similarly, people outside the area can send messages to people within the affected area.

 An announcement will be made on the television, radio, etc., when the NTT Saigai-yo Dengon Dial service is available. To use thes service, dial "117" and follow the directions (in Japanese ) to record or listen to messages.
