The Japan Emergency Team is Japan`s only non-government related Disaster Relief Team and Asia`s pioneering such operation.

Begun in 1989 when a group of 38 Students from Chuo University in Tokyo met with US President Ronald Reagan and subsequently traveled to assist on site at the San Francisco Earthquake it became the first overseas disaster response in Japanese history.

Japan`s government disaster team is modeled after the team and was set up following subsequent meetings with the Japan Emergency Team which enjoys very close cooperative relations with the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs and other agencies.

Following the San Francisco Earthquake response The Japan Emergency Team has been to nearly every disaster in the world.

Currently the team is in Iraq and the Niigata area of Japan where there was a terrible earthquake.
