This study intends to report the results of COCOA during the disaster drill in Ishinomaki City. On Sunday, 15 November 2015, a rainy day, the verification was conducted at the Comprehensive Disaster Drill in Ishinomaki City using an information sharing system on shelter, called COCOA, with the aim of supporting information sharing between headquarters and each shelter for disaster control and effective shelter management. COCOA is an information sharing system on shelter developed by Numada’s university office. This disaster drill confirmed that shelters can be effectively managed with respect to any change in circumstances over a given period of time; for example, the number of evacuees at each shelter can be grasped in real time, and those who need care can be identified easily by effectively preparing a list of evacuees.
