Disaster Preparedness and Emergency Planning

Order Details

Disaster preparedness incorporates all activities that will enhance the efficiency, effectiveness and impact of disaster emergency response mechanisms in the local community and throughout the country. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) forms the pillar of disaster preparedness, that is, it forms the action plan to be implemented before, during, and after disasters. Risk reduction, according to IFRCRCS, is defined as physical measures designed to reduce vulnerability and exposure of infrastructure to natural hazards as well and to provide coping and adaptive infrastructure in case of a disaster event.
