Disaster following Natural Events-Prevention and Management of Disaster
Disaster means “crises situation causing wide spread damage that far exceeds the ability to recover”. Disasters are not totally discrete events. There possibility of occurrence, time, place and severity of the strike can be reasonably and in some cases accurately predicted by technological and scientific advances. A manager needs to apply both modern management principles and a disaster control plan to handle the situation.
Disasters are broadly classified as natural disaster (acts of God) and accidental disaster (man made).
Disaster Management aims at reducing or avoiding the potential losses from hazards, assure prompt and appropriate assistance to victims of the disasters and achieve rapid and effective recovery. The disaster management cycle illustrate the on- going process by which the organizations and the government plans for and to reduce the impact of disaster, react during and immediately following a disaster and takes steps to recover after a disaster occurred.
