【English】First aid and subsequent treatment of affected photos

With the cooperation of Fujifilm Corporation and other organisations, the following two videos have been released to show how to provide first aid for damaged photographs caused by wind, flood and tsunami disasters.

This know-how is based on the experience of the Sanriku Archive Disaster Mitigation Centre and volunteers who also work pro bono to return and rescue photographs (Rikuzentakata City souvenirs, Kamaishi City souvenirs) that were washed away by the tsunami after the Great East Japan Earthquake.

The key point is to dry or freeze them as soon as possible. If they are well dried, they can be processed slowly after life has settled down.
Save as many important photos of you and your family as possible in case of a disaster.

By getting the word out to a wider audience before a disaster strikes, you can save photos that are important to those affected.
Please save as many photos as possible, which are precious treasures for you and your family.
