Hazard
A hazard is any object, situation, or behavior that
has the potential to cause injury, ill health, or
damage to property or the environment.
Emergency
An emergency is a situation that poses an
immediate risk to health, life, property, or
environment. Most emergencies require urgent
actions to prevent a worsening of the situation,
although in some situations, mitigation may not
be possible and agencies may only be able to offer
palliative care for the aftermath.
Risk
Risk is the potential of gaining or losing
something of value. Values (such as physical
health, social status, emotional well-being, or
financial wealth) can be gained or lost when
taking risk resulting from a given action or
inaction, foreseen or unforeseen (planned or not
planned).
Vulnerability
Vulnerability describes the characteristic and
circumstances of a community, system or asset
that makes it susceptible to the damaging effects
of a hazard. There are many aspects of
Vulnerability , arising from various physical,
social, economic, and environmental factors.

potential losses from hazards and appropriate
assistance to victims of disaster, and achieve rapid
and effective recovery.
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.
Disaster management
cycle

ongoing process by which governments,

the impact of disasters, react during and
immediately following a disaster, and take steps to
recover after a disaster has occurred.

Mitigation - Minimizing the effects of disaster.
Examples: building codes and zoning;
