disaster plan preparedness

Other environmental disasters, such as avalanches, lightning strikes, meteorites, solar flares for example, can strike pretty much anytime.

The trick is to be prepared for anything that may come along.

Being prepared means:

1. Having a plan of action in the event a disaster occurs
2. Having drilled that plan so all are aware of it and know exactly what part they play in it
3. Having the resources to sustain life during and after a disaster

A Plan of Action
You might think that each type of disaster would require a different plan and so many plans would need to be put into place. Then the correct plan instituted at the onset of the disaster.

In fact this is not necessarily the case. Although some plans might call for evacuations, such as with an avalanche or tsunami for example, most plans simply call for moving people to a safer position or place.

Some disasters are quite sudden, lightning strikes, meteorite showers and so forth. So the plan would be to get people under shelter as much and as quickly as possible.

Part of planning is to assess the risks involved in preparing for a disaster. It is important to identify the hazard or disaster quickly in your area and have a plan that offers a the best survival for you, your family and those around you.

Having the emergency services contact numbers and keeping in touch with them in the event of a disaster is important as they will have contingency plans already in place to cover most disaster situations.

There are usually various alert and warning systems in place such as through radio, TV, internet, Phone Apps and even emergency workers going door to door.

A plan should include the needs of infants, children, seniors and pets are important. Sometimes this can be easily overlooked.

Participating in local community activities, especially with regard to survival skills will help enormously and enhance your and your family's chances of survival during a disaster.

Drilling the Plan
The reason military activities work so well is that they are disciplined. This not does mean doing what one is told but rather each person knowing what they job is and all working together as a team to produce a specific result.

The same applies in drilling. If a disaster breaks out, what does each person in the community or family unit do? Perhaps one collects up the survival kits, one arranges transport, one organises contact with emergency services, where to meet if the group is separated and so forth. Many offices have fire drills and this includes assembly points for all staff in the event of a fire. This so people

1. Have somewhere specific to go and

2. That they can be checked and all accounted for to ensure no one is missing.

If and when the time comes to implement a plan for survival, one does not want to have to think, what do I do next? Or where do I go now? That should already be established and each person should be aware of the plan in its entirety.

Resources to sustain life
Having survival kits easily accessible and at the ready is vital. Not locked away somewhere in a cupboard and 'no one knows where the key is.'

Under beds so they can easily be grabbed is a good idea also in the car or garage. Provided they are easy to access and grab at a moment's notice.

Importantly having plenty of kits. At least one per person in the household and each sufficient for at least three days. They should have all the necessities of food, a first aid kit, some useful items such as torches, batteries, and so forth and easily carried in case it is necessary to walk long distances.. most companies that provide survival kits do an excellent job and have thought out the most important items needed. There are many reviews of such companies on this site. Go to for a list.

Many disasters can be overcome. It is just the major sudden disasters that are a big problem. Local disasters, such as floods, fires, extreme temperatures can be worked around. It is a matter of understanding what is most likely in your area. If you love in a forest then fire is perhaps the greatest hazard. If you are in flat lands and there is often a lot of rain, then flooding may be the most common problem. Coastal areas have their own problems and same with mountainous regions.

Being aware and alert is probably your best resource for any disaster.
