Shinagawa to Give PHS to All Primary Students

Tokyo's Shinagawa ward announced a plan to issue a personal handyphone system (phs) to all primary school children from next April. The scheme was jointly developed by the ward and a NPO made up of local manufacturers. The phones will be given to about 12,000 pupils, who will be able to activate a simple alarm by pulling out an attached pin. The ward will contact community and PTA leaders in the vicinity of the alarm.
