TAIPEI (TVBS News) — Over 70 percent of Taipei's housing is over 30 years old, exposing residents to potential risks like earthquakes. The Taipei City Government is prioritizing improvements in the disaster response skills of rescue teams to ensure a safer living environment.

In April, a live, scriptless disaster prevention and rescue exercise was held to test Taipei's emergency response systems.

 

The drill simulated a 6.6-magnitude earthquake. Taipei City Mayor Chiang Wan-an explained the distribution of responsibilities: logistics teams managed victim resettlement; frontline teams prepared for rapid response to a potential building collapse near an MRT station; and controllers monitored real disaster situations to develop rescue strategies.

At the SusHi Tech Tokyo 2024 City Leaders Program, Mayor Chiang showcased a Disaster Response Collaboration Cloud Platform. This technology offers real-time updates on incident locations and status classifications, he noted.

The city government aims to mitigate risks associated with aging, unsafe buildings by promoting urban renewal and enhancing disaster response capabilities, striving to make Taipei a safer city for all residents.
