Disaster Management

Disasters can happen to anyone at anytime. Creating a plan at the family, community, national, and global level will help manage and reduce the impact of disasters.Avoiding the time, cost, and resources needed to create a proactive plan is inexcusable and can have potentially devastating consequences. Are you and your community prepared?

Important Note: These phases do not have to occur in sequential order or in isolation of each other. - Mitigation - Minimizing the effects of the disaster (i.e. building codes, zoning, vulnerability analysis, public education).- Preparedness - Planning how to respond (i.e. preparation plans, emergency exercises and training, warning systems)- Response - Efforts to minimize the hazards created by the disaster (i.e. search and rescue, emergency relief).- Recovery - Returning the community to as close to normal as possible (i.e. temporary housing, grants, medical and psychological care.)See the full GRDC Document
