Fukuoka Prefecture established a partnership with a Yamanashi Prefecture-based carpenter association to provide rapid emergency repairs for disaster-hit houses. The 2017-established group has approximately 120 registered carpenters and scaffold workers to dispatch to regions that suffer strong typhoons, earthquakes and more. It was the first time that the association partnered with a prefecture in Kyushu. Source: Mainichi / Nippon Stainless Industry Co. Ltd
