In case of severe natural disasters, elderly people and the disabled often lost their lives as a result of the difficulty to prevent and evacuate. For a long-term care facility, the number of facility staff may not fulfill the large manpower required during accidents for evacuation and dispersal and may have to rely on disaster prevention and rescue organizations. However, numbers of injuries and deaths may be decreased if the responsive organization can efficiently operate. Therefore, mechanisms and measures such as emergency contact systems and evacuation transport should be pre-established as the foundation of effective response during the time of adisaster. This study interviewed the fire department of Hsinchu County and Hsinchu City, the staff or section chief of disaster prevention at the Social Affairs Department, and the head (director) of five long-term care facilities or the staff of disaster prevention through semi-structured interviews. This will serve to elucidate the mechanism of intercommunication and mutual support between different organizations, as well as the established structureof emergency contact resources in long-term care facilitiesfor emergency responses during a disaster. Based on the practical information from the research interviews, a system of device application that can rapidly and conveniently connect the administrative agency of long-term care facilities with neighboring units of civil affairs, police, and fire service may be established. It may help the staff of long-term care facilities to report important information and messages to related personnel in a more convenient manner during a disaster. This is expected to increase long-term care facilities’ speed and certainty of information transfer during a disaster and help them react more promptly.
