Disaster management ppt Presentation Transcript

  • 1. DisasterManagement16.17.18.19.20.21.22.23.
  • 2. What is disaster management??? “A disaster can be defined as any occurrence that cause damage, ecological disruption, loss of human life, deterioration of health and health services on a scale, sufficient to warrant an extraordinary response from outside the affected community or area”. (W.H.O.) “A disaster can be defined as an occurrence either nature or manmade that causes human suffering and creates human needs that victims cannot alleviate without assistance”. American Red Cross (ARC) ’
  • 3. What is Disaster Management
  • 4. What it involves ?? Dealing with and avoiding both natural and man made disasters. Preparedness before disaster. Rebuilding and supporting society after natural disasters.
  • 5. BACKGROUND Enormous population pressures and urbanizationA flood, a drought or an earthquake millions of peoples are affected each time a disaster occurs Large-scale displacement and the loss of life, loss of property and agricultural crops
  • 6. BACKGROUND The reasons for this are varied including:  an increasing population pressures in urban areas  an increase in the extent of encroachment into lands, e.g., river beds or drainage courses, low lying areas etc.  poor or ignored zoning laws and policies  lack of proper risk management (insurance)
  • 7. TYPES OF DISASTER Natural Man-made Disasters Disasters Meteorological Technological Industrial Topographical accidents Environmental Security related
  • 8. FACTORS AFFECTING DISASTER • Age • Immunization status Host factors • Degree of mobility • Emotional stability • Physical Factors • Chemical Factors Environmental • Biological Factors factors • Social Factors • Psychological Factors
  • 9. CHARACTERISTIC OF DISASTER Predictability Controllability Speed of onset Length of forewarning Duration of impact Scope and intensity of impact
  • 10. PHASES OF DISASTER Pre-impact phase Impact phase Post-impact phase
  • 11. PRINCIPLES OF DISASTER MANAGEMENT Disaster management is the responsibility of all spheres of government Disaster management should use resources that exist for a day-to-day purpose. Organizations should function as an extension of their core business Individuals are responsible for their own safety. Disaster management planning should focus on large-scale events.
  • 12. Contd…. DM planning should recognize the difference between incidents and disasters. DM planning must take account of the type of physical environment and the structure of the population. DM arrangements must recognise the involvement and potential role of non- government agencies.
  • 13. PHASES OF DISASTER MANAGEMENT Disaster Preparedness Disaster impact Disaster Response Rehabilitation Disaster Mitigation
  • 14. Disaster preparedness Preparedness should be in the form of money, manpower and materials Evaluation from past experiences about risk Location of disaster prone areas Organization of communication, information and warning system Ensuring co-ordination and response mechanisms
  • 15. Contd…. Development of public education programme Co-ordination with media National & international relations Keeping stock of foods, drug and other essential commodities.
  • 16. E.g.: Indian Meteorological department (IMD) plays a key role in forewarning the disaster of cyclone-storms by detection tracing. It has 5 centres in Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, Vishakapatanam, Chennai & Mumbai. In addition there are 31 special observation posts setup a long the east coast of India.The International Agencies which provides humanitarian assistance to the disaster strike areas are United Nation agencies. Office for the co-ordination of Humanitarian Affair (OCHA) World Health Organization (WHO) UNICEF World Food Programme (WFP) Food & Agricultural Organisation (FAD)E.g.: Non Governmental Organizations Co-Operative American Relief Every where (CARE) International committee of Red cross International committee of Red cross
  • 17. Disaster impact
  • 18. Disaster response Epidemiologic surveillance and disease control Vaccination Nutrition
  • 19. Rehabilitation phase Water supply Food safety Basic sanitation and personal hygiene Vector control
  • 20. Disaster mitigation This involves lessening the likely effects of emergencies. These include depending upon the disaster, protection of vulnerable population and structure. Eg. improving structural qualities of schools, houses and such other buildings so that medical causalities can be minimized. Similarly ensuring the safety of health facilities and public health services including water supply and sewerage system to reduce the cost of rehabilitation and reconstruction. This mitigation compliments the disaster preparedness and disaster response activities.
  • 21. DISASTER-EFFECTS  Deaths  Disability  Increase in communicable disease  Psychological problems  Food shortage  Socioeconomic losses  Shortage of drugs and medical supplies.  Environmental disruption
  • 22. DISASTER RECOVERY Successful Recovery Preparation Be vigilant in Health teaching Psychological support Referrals to hospital as needed Remain alert for environmental health Nurse must be attentive to the danger
  • 23. Major Disasters in India 1984 Bhopal Gas Tragedy 2001 Gujarat earthquake 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami 2008 Mumbai attacks
  • 24. India’s Vulnerability to Disasters  57% land is vulnerable to earthquakes. Of these, 12% is vulnerable to severe earthquakes.  68% land is vulnerable to drought.  12% land is vulnerable to floods.  8% land is vulnerable to cyclones.  Apart from natural disasters, some cities in India are also vulnerable to chemical and industrial disasters and man-made disasters.
  • 25. GOI – NGO Disaster preparation and Response Committee Members World Vision of India SOS Childrens Village India Ramakrishna Mission Plan international OXFAM India Trust Lutheran World Service India Red Cross Catholic Relief Services CASA CARITAS India Voluntary Health association Of India Action Aid Action for Food Production-AFPRO Indo German Social Services Society
  • 26. Areas of Concern Activating an Early Warning System network and its close monitoring Mechanisms for integrating the scientific, technological and administrative agencies for effective disaster management Terrestrial communication links which collapse in the event of a rapid onset disaster Vulnerability of critical infrastructures (power supply, communication, water supply, transport, etc.) to disaster events
  • 27. Contd… Funding : Primacy of relief as disaster response. Preparedness and Mitigation very often ignored. Lack of integrated efforts to collect and compile data, information and local knowledge on disaster history and traditional response patterns. Need for standardized efforts in compiling and interpreting geo-spatial data, satellite imagery and early warning signals. Weak areas continue to be forecasting, modeling, risk prediction, simulation and scenario analysis, etc.
  • 28. Contd… Absence of a national level, state level, and district level directory of experts and inventory of resources. Absence of a National Disaster Management Plan, and State level and district level disaster management plans. Sustainability of efforts Effective Inter Agency Co-ordination and Standard Operating Procedures for stakeholder groups, especially critical first responder agencies. Emergency medicine, critical care medicine, triage, first aid
  • 29. Nodal Agencies for Disaster Management Floods : Ministry of Water Resources, CWC Cyclones : Indian Meteorological Department Earthquakes : Indian Meteorological Department Epidemics : Ministry of Health and Family Welfare Avian Flu: Ministry of Health, Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Husbandry
  • 30. Nodal Agencies for Disaster Management Chemical Disasters : Ministry of Environment and Forests Industrial Disasters : Ministry of Labour Rail Accidents : Ministry of Railways Air Accidents : Ministry of Civil Aviation Fire : Ministry of Home Affairs Nuclear Incidents : Department of Atomic Energy Mine Disasters : Department of Mines
  • 31. Dynamics of Disasters There is a high probability or a low probability for an event happening somewhere sometime soon… The unpredictability of disaster events and the high risk and vulnerability profiles make it imperative to strengthen disaster preparedness, mitigation and enforcement of guidelines, building codes and restrictions on construction of buildings in flood-prone areas and storm surge prone coastal areas.
  • 32. New Directions for Disaster Management inIndia  The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has been set up as the apex body for Disaster Management in India, with the Prime Minister as its Chairman.  Disaster Management Authorities will be set up at the State and District Levels to be headed by the Chief Ministers and Collectors/Zilla Parishad Chairmen respectively.
  • 33. New Directions for Disaster Management inIndia  A National Disaster Mitigation Fund will be administerd by NDMA. States and districts will administer mitigation funds.  A National Disaster Response Fund will be administerd by NDMA through the National Executive Committee. States and Districts will administer state Disaster Response Fund and Disaster Response Fund respectively.  8 Battalions of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) are being trained and deployed with CSSR and MFR equipments and tools in eight strategic locations.  A National Disaster Management Policy and National Disaster Response Plan will also be drawn up.
  • 34. Lessons Learnt Be Prepared : Preparedness and Mitigation is bound to yield more effective returns than distributing relief after a disaster. Create a Culture of Preparedness and Prevention. Evolve a code of conduct for all stake-holders
  • 35. Future Directions Encourage and consolidate knowledge networks Mobilise and train disaster volunteers for more effective preparedness, mitigation and response (NSS, NCC, Scouts and Guides, NYK, Civil Defence, Homeguards) Increased capacity building leads to faster vulnerability reduction. Learn from best practices in disaster preparedness, mitigation and disaster response
  • 36. Future Directions Mobilising stakeholder participation of Self Help Groups, Women’s Groups, Youth Groups, Panchayati Raj Institutions Anticipatory Governance: Simulation exercises, Mock drills and Scenario Analysis Indigenous knowledge systems and coping practices Living with Risk: Community Based Disaster Risk Management
  • 37. Invest in Preparedness Investments in Preparedness and Prevention (Mitigation) will yield sustainable results, rather than spending money on relief after a disaster. Most disasters are predictable, especially in their seasonality and the disaster-prone areas which are vulnerable. Communities must be involved in disaster preparedness.
  • 38. Future Directions  Inclusive, participatory, gender sensitive, child friendly, eco-friendly and disabled friendly disaster management  Technology driven but people owned  Knowledge Management: Documentation and dissemination of good practices  Public Private Partnership
  • 39. Best Practices On 12 November, 1970 a major cyclone hit the coastal belt of Bangladesh at 223 km/hr. with a storm surge of six to nine meters height, killing an estimated 500,000 people. Due to the Cyclone Preparedness Program, the April 1991 cyclone with wind speed of 225 km/hr. killed only 138,000 people even though the coastal population had doubled by that time. In May 1994, in a similar cyclone with a wind speed of 250 km/hr. only 127 people lost their lives. In May 1997, in a cyclone with wind speed of 200 km/hr. only 111 people lost their lives.
  • 40. New possibilities National Urban Renewal Mission for 70 cities: recent experience of “unprecedented” extreme weather conditions in a few major metros and megacities 100,000 Rural Knowledge Centres ( IT Kiosks): Need for Spatial e-Governance for informed decision making in disaster-prone areas: before, during and after disasters
  • 41. Disaster Reduction Day NIDM observed "Disaster Reduction Day" on the 12th October Rallies and special lectures were organized in the universities and colleges to mark the initiatives of awareness for disaster reduction amongst youth & children Childrens Colour Activity Book for Disaster Preparedness
  • 42.  FORINFORMATION ON DISASTERS DIAL TOLL FREE No. 1070 Log on to http://www.ndmindia.nic.in
  • 43. DISASTER NURSING  It can be defined as the adaptation of professional nursing skills in recognizing and meeting the nursing, physical and emotional needs resulting from a disaster.
