Fujitsu Group to Carry out Joint Disaster Response Drills

Tokyo, Aug 28, 2014 - (JCN Newswire) - Fujitsu today announced that it will carry out Group-wide disaster response drills throughout Japan on the first day of Disaster Prevention Week, September 1, 2014. Disaster prevention drills are held annually in Japan, on Disaster Prevention Day, September 1. This year will mark the twentieth time that these disaster prevention drills have been carried out.

This year, the Fujitsu Group will perform drills based on a scenario in which the northern Kanto region, where a number of Fujitsu's important manufacturing and services facilities are located, is damaged by an earthquake in southern Ibaraki Prefecture. The drills will verify the company's ability to put initial disaster response measures into place in coordination with each Group worksite that sustains damage.

In addition, Fujitsu Group worksites across Japan will simultaneously perform initial response drills, such as confirming the safety of employees and evaluating damage to buildings immediately following the scenario's earthquake, as well as drills to identify any dangerous areas around worksites and confirm evacuation routes developed in line with disaster support maps.

By carrying out these drills, Fujitsu will build upon its Group-wide system for quickly making initial response to disasters while also promoting strong business continuity capabilities.

Overview of the Fujitsu Group Joint Disaster Response Drills

1. Date and time: Monday, September 1, 2014, from 13:30 to 17:00

2. Participating Group Companies: Approx. 90 companies, including Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu FSAS Inc.

3. No. of Participants: Approx. 500 people

4. Main Contents of the Drills
1. Through the coordination of information among a disaster response headquarters established at Fujitsu's headquarters and each business group's response unit, simulation drills will involve the collection of information on the extent of damage sustained by each Fujitsu location in the affected area, including manufacturing facilities, sales offices, and datacenters. The simulation drills will cover the first 48 hours following a disaster, and aim to help customers that have sustained damage maintain their business operations as well as Fujitsu's own business continuity.
2.In coordination with the City of Saitama, Fujitsu's Kanto branch and the Kanetsu branch of Fujitsu FSAS will perform drills to support the recovery of customers' ICT systems. The drills will involve receiving recovery support requests from customers, dispatching emergency recovery teams, assessing and confirming the extent of the damage, and urgently sending maintenance parts.
3.Fujitsu's Oyama Plant, based on its business continuity plan and disaster response plan, will perform drills to confirm the safety of employees and evaluate damage to structures and equipment, as well as drills to quickly establish its business continuity systems.

Together with these Group-wide disaster response drills, an approximately two-hour disaster scenario video will be distributed across the company intranet to each Fujitsu Group office in Japan. While observing this video, each office will perform initial response simulation drills, such as confirming the safety of employees, evaluating damage to property and equipment, and performing first aid, while also conducting drills to create disaster support maps that identify any dangerous areas around the worksites and confirm evacuation routes.
