Response to the TEPCO's Fukushima Daiichi NPS Accident and Local Communities (1/2)
Providing useful information for helping affected people to solve or deal with real issues has been proven to be an effective means for offering psychological support.
In the event of a nuclear disaster, expert knowledge is required to understand the possible effects of radiation and to come up with measures for radiological protection.
After the Chernobyl NPS Accident, as well as after the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO)'s Fukushima Daiichi NPS Accident, experts and local residents had dialogues. If affected people are able to solve radiation issues by themselves with experts' support, that is considered quite effective in reducing their psychological stress.
