Guide to Safety



The ultimate objective of all efforts is twofold: to ensure individual as well as collective safety against all types of disasters through pre-disaster strategic thinking, planning, preparedness, prevention, and to reduce risks and minimize losses through timely interventions and swift post-disaster response. The chapter serves as a “Dummies Guide” to safety against earthquakes, landslides, tsunamis, cyclones, thunderstorms and lightning, dust storms, floods and fire. It also provides simple tips for personal safety at school, home, and place of work.
