The government began delivering 700 dosimeters to the Fukushima Prefectural Government and all 59 municipalities in the prefecture on Nov. 8 to help them track radioactive contamination released in the ongoing Fukushima nuclear disaster.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology is lending the devices to the local governments free of charge. It expects to pass out 6,000 dosimeters by February next year, with the prefecture slated for about 1,000 and the rest — in lots of between three and 855 — delivered to municipalities based on their pre-Great East Japan Earthquake populations.

“Our residents in temporary housing complexes are always asking us if it’s safe to hang laundry outside,” the Namie official said. “I wish we’d got these dosimeters sooner.”
