Course on Disaster Management

Institute of Disaster Management

(An Autonomous Institute established by Mission Bhartiyam)

A disaster is a natural or man-made hazard that devastates the life and property; and the damage of which takes enormous time & resources to be recouped. It also brings drastic change to the environment that adversely affects the health of all living beings on the earth. It is a phenomenon that devastates the economic, social and cultural life of people. A disaster can be perceived as any tragic event with great loss stemming from events such as earthquakes, floods, catastrophic accidents, fires, or explosions.

Some disasters cannot be prevented eventually, but we can reduce the loss of life, material, environment etc. by preparing ourselves. Although avoiding any accident depends upon our own common sense, though building our capacity through scientific ways and upon community resources makes us prepared & vigilant. There are a number of resources lying around us that can help us prevent ourselves in the event of any disaster, but we have to train ourselves to use those resources in different settings.
