Disaster Management

Earthquake, Tsunami, Tornado, Hurricane, Flood, Landslide, Fire etc. can lead to disaster.

Disaster is a threat to Environment and the society. Disaster management deals with preparations to reduce the impact of natural or man-made disasters.

Phases of Disaster Management

There are four phases of disaster management; mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Mitigation focuses on avoiding hazards or reducing the impact of disaster.

The mitigation actions are of four types:

(1) Local Planning and Regulations,

(2) Structure and Infrastructure Projects,

(3) Natural Systems Protection,

(4) Education and Awareness Programs.

Preparedness involves developing action plans to combat disaster when it happens.

Response includes mobilization of emergency services for evacuation and rescue operations.

Recovery is involved in the rehabilitation and rebuilding process.
