The Tokyo Fire Department is Using Animal Crossing: New Horizons to Share Safety Tips

Tokyo Fire Department Safety Tips with Animal Crossing New Horizons

If there’s one way to grab everyone’s attention to share safety tips in Japan, it would have to be through Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The Tokyo Fire Department is doing just that to help share safety tips on Twitter. [Thanks, Ryokutya2089.]

Here’s the first Animal Crossing: New Horizons tweet from Tokyo Fire Department, followed by an introduction:

(Using popular games and such to share disaster prevention info.)

“While the entire nation has been going through one disaster after the other, we haven’t had many opportunities to practice disaster prevention due to social distancing. We’re currently planning various things to better inform everybody about disaster prevention, in a way that is easy to understand.”

(New dispatch of disaster prevention info begins!)

“We’ve relocated staff to the island of Bousai (Disaster Prevention). They will share information about disaster prevention while watching over the safety of the island.”

Here’s the latest Animal Crossing: New Horizons tweet from the department about summer heat safety tips:

(The rainy season is almost over, let’s be careful with accidents in the summer)

“Heatstroke prevention measures:

  1. Hydrate yourself.
  2. Wear a hat.
  3. Use the air conditioner or natural breeze to be in cooler temperatures.

Water accident prevention measures:

  1. Keep an eye on your children at all times.
  2. Do not swim after consuming alcohol.
  3. Pay attention to the weather reports.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch. In case you missed it, island backups will arrive on July 30, 2020.
