  immediately on whichever floor it stops. If trapped inside, press an emergency-call button and wait
  for help.

 In a Mass Retail Shop or Crowded Public building

  ・In a mass retail shop, you should move away from showcases or merchandise shelves that may
  fall over, and protect yourself from danger.

  ・In a movie theater or other places, you should protect your head with a bag or other things. 
  Lie flat quickly between the seats, and other places. Find an open space to protect yourself from
  falling objects. Follow advices of attendants.

 If driving a Car
  Slowly reduce your speed, find safe place, and park your car on the left. Listen to the car radio to
  obtain disaster information.

 In a Underground Mall
 ・Don't panic even if the electricity goes out.
 ・Don't rush to stairs or emergency exits. When so many people rush to one place in a hurry, they
  are more likely to fall down on the stairs. Follow advices of attendants.

 In a moving Train
  Don't panic, and follow advices of a train attendant. Don't attempt to exit from the train.
    You will be exposed to the risk of electrical shock or be hit by another train.

  There is no telling when tsunami strikes. When there are strong tremors near coasts in the sea,
  move inland to higher ground immediately. Don't wait for a tsunami warning to be issued.

 Near a Mountain or Cliffs
  Move as far away from a mountain or cliffs as possible if you are near, and evacuate to a flat and
