What is Individual Preparedness?

Natural Disaster preparedness is a system that focuses on prevention, response and how to recover from natural disasters. It involves planning, organising, training, equipping, evaluating and taking collective action. 


Why is it important? 

Preparing for natural disasters is crucial because it enhances personal safety and reduces the risk of harm. Adequate preparation ensures a prompt response, minimising potential damage to property and well-being. It also enables individuals to cope better with disruptions to basic services like electricity and water supply. Advance planning facilitates a quicker recovery process for both individuals and communities, fostering resilience in the face of unforeseen circumstances. Overall, proactive preparation is a key factor in mitigating the impact of natural disasters on individuals and surroundings.
