Disaster Management

N.C. Asthana (Author) Priyamvada Asthana (Author)

Disaster management is a relatively new subject in India. Our record in disaster management has been far from satisfactory. Whether it is earthquakes, floods, flash floods, cyclones, drought, industrial disaster like the Bhopal gas tragedy, or outbreak of various types of epidemics, we almost invariably end up with massive loss of lives and property. The memories of the Uttarakhand floods, the cyclones in Orissa, floods in Bihar, the Bhuj earthquake, and the 2004 tsunami are still fresh in our memory. This exhaustive book covers, among other things, the following in great detail: · Fundamentals of disaster management · Disaster mitigation measures; disaster preparedness; response to disasters; and recovery from disasters · Disaster emergency medical care · Search and rescue operations · Indian government’s approach and systems for disaster management · Various types of disasters and measures to deal with them including cyclones; earthquakes; floods; tsunamis; droughts and famines; railway accidents; health-related disasters and various outbreaks like dengue, Japanese encephalitis, and avian flu; mining accidents; industrial disasters including nuclear reactor and chemical plant accidents; aircraft accidents; war-related disasters; landslides; avalanches; and wildfires etc. This book provides detailed practical advice on the techniques and equipment which you would not find in any other book on disaster management. Drawing from the examples and best practices in the world, it will enable individuals, organisations and governments to know what they ought to do for preventing disasters and coping with them; what equipment they should have; what preparation they should make, and how they must employ them. Every citizen of this country must read this book so that he is better prepared for coping with any type of disaster.
