Disaster management/Emergency Preparedness (or emergency management) is the discipline of dealing with and avoiding both natural and man made disasters. It involves preparedness, response and recovery in order to lessen the impact of disasters. It may also involve preparedness training by private citizens, as by FEMA in the United States. All aspects of disaster management deal with the processes used to protect populations or organizations from the consequences of disasters, wars and acts of terrorism. This can be seen through government publications such as the national Strategy of Homeland security which details how individuals and varying levels of government respond during the different phases of a disaster. Disaster management does not necessarily avert or eliminate the threats themselves, although the study and prediction of the threats is an important part of the field. The basic level of emergency management are the various kinds of search and rescue activity.

This takes many forms, including rehearsals of evacuation plans, stockpiling of essentials and creating a “72” hour kit” and implementing of an emergency communication systems and early warning devices. The 2 viable options are “waiting it out” or evacuating as necessary. The survival kit should contain non-perishable foods, appropriate medication, money, valuable documents and candles/flashlights.
