Mitigation :

Mitigation Personal mitigation is mainly about knowing and avoiding unnecessary risks. This includes an assessment of possible risks to personal/family health and to personal property. In a flood plain , in areas of subsidence or landslides , home owners may not be aware of a property being exposed to a hazard until it strikes. However, specialists can be hired to conduct risk identification and assessment surveys.

Preparedness:

Preparedness Personal preparedness focuses on preparing equipment and procedures for use ''when'' a disaster occurs, i.e., planning. Preparedness measures can take many forms including the construction of shelters, implementation of an [[Emergency Communication System|emergency communication system]], installation of warning devices, creation of back-up life-line services (e.g., power, water, sewage), and rehearsing evacuation plans.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The response phase of an emergency may commence with search and rescue but in all cases the focus will quickly turn to fulfilling the basic humanitarian basic needs of the affected population. This assistance may be provided by national or international agencies and organizations. Effective coordination of disaster assistance is often crucial, particularly when many organizations respond and [[local emergency management agency (LEMA) capacity has been exceeded by the demand or diminished by the disaster itself.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Within the [[United Nations]] system responsibility for emergency response rests with the Resident Coordinator within the affected country. However, in practice international response will be coordinated, if requested by the affected country’s government, by the UN [[Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs]] (UN-OCHA), by deploying a UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) team.

{ Natural disasters are part of life in Australia. Drought occurs on average every 3 out of 10 years and associated heatwaves have killed more Australians than any other type of natural disaster in the 20th century. Australia’s emergency management processes embrace the concept of the prepared community. The principal government agency in achieving this is [[Emergency Management Australia]]. [[Public Safety Canada]] is Canada’s national emergency management agency. Each province is required to have legislation in place for dealing with emergencies, as well as establish their own emergency management agencies, typically called an "Emergency Measures Organization" (EMO), which functions as the primary liaison with the municipal and federal level.

[[File:Wall in kalpakkam.JPG|thumb|200 px|A protective wall built on the shore of the coastal town of [[ Kalpakkam ]], in aftermath of the [[2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake]].]] The role of emergency management in [[India]] falls to [[National Disaster Management Authority]] of India, a government agency subordinate to the Ministry of Home Affairs. In recent years there has been a shift in emphasis from response and recovery to strategic risk management and reduction, and from a government-centered approach to decentralized community participation. The Ministry of Science and Technology.headed by Dr Karan Rawat , supports an internal agency that facilitates research by bringing the academic knowledge and expertise of earth scientists to emergency management.
