Rapid onset disasters:- A disaster that is triggered by an instantaneous shock. The Impact of disaster be short- lived long term . Earthquake , cyclone, flash flood, volcanic eruption are some example of rapid onset disasters Natural disasters :- A natural disaster is an event that is caused that is caused by natural hazard and leads to human, material, economic and Environmental losses , which exceed the ability of those affected to cope.PowerPoint Presentation: 4.

Some of the hazards are industrial accidents, Rail road etc…PowerPoint Presentation: WORLD DISTRIBUTION OF disaster TRIGGERED BY NATURAL HARZARDSPowerPoint Presentation: Community planning for disaster management :- Read the story….. The southern coast of India was hit by giant tsunami waves on 26 th December 2004. the poorest and the Most undeserved, who where mainly from the fishing Community, had to bear to brunt. But the people of Samiyarpettai, a small village in tamilnadu, India were one of those blessed communities who were saved The villagers closed samiyarpettai had five times Higher death toll, but how was it possible to save So many lives in samiyarpettai?PowerPoint Presentation: The short story mentioned above clearly reflects the importance and the need of community planning for any hazard that is likely to occur in a area. During and immediately after a disaster, it is most often the neighbors or people of the community who respond first. They are normally the first responders before the affected people can seek any support from the local authorities or any non governmental organizations The government of India have strongly advocates the buildings of community capacities in various aspects of disaster response, urges communities to develop disaster plans etc.. The students, teachers as educated members of the society play a crucial role in guiding the communities to reduce disaster risk.PowerPoint Presentation: Why should the community at the heart of any Disaster management initiative? First responder : since the community is at site of the disaster. It is first one to respond it. Source of maximum information : when a disaster occurs in an area, no one will have better or more comprehensive and up to date information on the people living there and its resources than the inhabitants of the areas. Local copying mechanisms: most disaster are recurrent; hence there is always a traditionally established coping mechanism that is handled down over generations. This would ideally be the most immediate response measure for the local environment through it could be improved technical backing.PowerPoint Presentation: Tips for safety at schools and homes Read this story… The china earthquake which killed more than 900 students of a high school on 12 th may 2008 also reminds us of the importance of having safe schools both structural and non-structural. Many precious lives could have been saved had the teachers and students carried out regular mock drills and had a school disaster management plan in place. Another incident that reflects the vulnerability of children in schools is the kumbakonam fire tragedy that occurred in lord Krishna school on 16 th July, 2004 in tamilnadu killing 93 students all belowPowerPoint Presentation: The age of 11 years. The impact of this accident could have been reduced to a considerable extended had the administration, teachers and students been better trained prior to the incident. The administration could have looked into the location of the kitchen in the school, placement of fire extinguishers/ sand buckets, preparation of fire evacuation plan in the school and generating awareness regarding fire safety amongst teachers and students etc.. Had students and teachers been properly sensitized, the precious lives of the 93 young students could have been saved by evacuating them to the safe places.PowerPoint Presentation: Components of a school disasters management plan Sensation and awareness amongst teacher and school management : before preparing the school disaster Management plan, there is a need to carry out a sensitization programme with the key people like principal, vice-principal the school management and Administrative staff, teachers and head students so that the need and importance of the plan is felt by everybody. formation of the disaster management committee: the members of this committee will have the overall responsibility in guiding and developing the plan forPowerPoint Presentation: The school and also carrying out regular mocks drills in school.

There are three kinds of maps to cater to different requirements.PowerPoint Presentation: Social map Resource map Vulnerability map Formation and training of disaster management teams(DMTs) awareness generation team: the members of this group should be creative and have an inclination for art and culture.
