Rikei Corporation (Head Office: Shinjuku-ku, Tokyo; President & CEO: Tetsuo Kuroda) would like to announce it started to sell an Integrated Emergency Flash Report E-Mail Distribution System” for use by local governments

Outline of this new product

This new product is an integrated type of “Emergency Flash Report E-Mail Distribution System” which is designed to automatically link with Emergency Earthquake Flash Report, Weather Information and Citizen Protection Information (which include instantaneous voice synthesis method and advance voice replacement method) which are distributed by the J-ALERT System. As for the emergency flash report e-mails provided by the three major cell phone carriers (NTT DoCoMo, KDDI (au) and SoftBank), they will provide broadcast distribution of mails only with one-time activation operation. This system also is designed to work together with the Registered E-Mail System which can be used to send notices to the staff or residents outside the service area as well as the Staff Gathering Mail System.


  • Broadcast distribution of any emergency flash report “Area Mail” (*1) and any Emergency Flash Report Mail (*2) of the three major cell phone carriers.
  • Linkable with the Citizen Protection Information issued by the J-ALERT System (instantaneous voice synthesis method, and advance voice replacement method).
  • High-speed processing has been realized in order to send the information from the J-ALERT System directly to the three carriers.
  • Linkable with the Area One Seg(ment) System (which provides broadcasting services for a specific area) and with L-type Telop System.
  • Linkable with external devices such as the Digital Signage System, and products by disaster relief vendors (such as automatic vending machines).
  • As for weather information, this system can work by responding to variable information such as headline information of the telegraphic message issued from Japan Meteorological Agency.
  • Other maker’s receiver can be used together this system as long as it is specially designed and made as a receiver for the J-ALERT System.
  • As an option, you can confirm the voice message of the J-ALERT System by using a PC or a cell phone (when the output is limited to E-Mail if only fixed sentences are available.) Automatic text linkage with Twitter and FaceBook is also possible.

Reason for Development, and Marketability

We, Rikei, developed the J-ALERT System, and have been delivering many sets of this system to the Fire and Disaster Management Agency. And to respond to the increasing needs among local governments and public services organizations for conveying J-ALERT information to their residents, we released a separate type of receivers “JAK-1000” and then an automatic activator (“JAK-1500”) for radio broadcasting.

We believe you vividly remember the scene in which staff members of local governments were risking their life to provide a tsunami warning to as many residents as possible at the time of the Great East Japan Earthquake which occurred on March 11, 2011. We believe it is our company’s very important mission to urgently develop products and systems, by fully using our accumulated experiences and expertise, which will ensure the safety of residents and reduce the burden of staff members of various local governments across Japan.

Our Future Plan

Because of our mission explained above, we will continue our best efforts to supply this product to local governments across Japan based on our experiences in selling JAK-1000 and JAK-1500.

Start of Selling this Product

We started to sell this product from April 25, 2013.
