Disasters are those unexpected scenarios that occur due to different climatic changes or due to those harmful activities of us human beings. These are storms, heavy rains, floods, hurricanes, landslides, earthquakes, tsunamis and so on. However, the point is that disasters are events that might occur anytime anywhere and at anyplace. The impact that these events leave behind is highly tragic. This is because these natural disasters can ruin the daily life of human beings. They completely destroy houses, working places and even more tragic, the life of a loved one. The thing is these cannot be stopped but we can take steps to be precautious and minimise the damage that these disasters can cause.
The starting point should be from part of the government of the country. The government officials need to ensure that the public are aware of disasters and methods to minimize the damage of it. Placing of Tsunami alarm warning systems, and the various equipment’s that could detect a change of earth’s core changes can be a start.
Earthquakes can shake the base of your house. In countries like Japan where earthquakes occur generally houses are constructed in such a way that the earthquake would not affect the foundation. Thereby, this keeps the house stable and the damage is minimised.
What can one do in a situation where there is a sudden flood? At least until the flood rescue services reach you might have to ensure your safety. The best solution is to climb the height. that is the roof. Roof access systems need to be easy and quick. Less complicated ways of reaching the roof top, for example having a stare way can make it easy for anyone to rush up in an emergency.
Hurricanes and tornados can just sweep of your house. The roofs in the house should be moulded and repaired daily so that they are apt and stable in an emergency. However, height safety systems need to be practiced and followed before any roof alterations. This is because usually more accidents occur during taking precautions to protect from disasters than the actual disasters.
Steel doors and locks are more stable than plastic and wooden doors and locks. Steel or hard metal have the ability to hold and stand in most difficult climates. However, metal has the negative quality of rusting. This can minimize its ability to stand in any climate. The paints in the house have the ability to get ruined in harsh weather. Either when it’s too sunny or when it is too cold. Consider applying a weather shield paint instead of a normal house paint. These simple tricks and precautions will ensure that the damage done by natural disasters is minimized greatly.
