'If There Was A Disaster, Could The Government Protect Your Family?

We live in a world in which the media drip-feeds us with a steady flow of disastrous news. Crises have almost become a part of life. When fires or hurricanes rage across the country, we find out about it instantly on the TV or our smart devices. 

That’s not to say, though, that disasters are just a normal part of life or easily managed; they’re not. They still present a real danger. People might be nonchalant about the threat, but that is only because of the preparedness systems put in place by the government. 

As the following infographic shows, the number of disasters is going up. In the mid-1990s, there were comparatively few crises to manage compared to today. Whether that is by chance or some underlying reason such as climate change, remains to be seen. But what we do know is that the government needs to take action now to ensure that we’re all prepared should disaster strike. 

If you’re interested in how the government is trying to protect your family from fires, diseases, earthquakes, and hurricanes, please take a look at the following infographic. It charts the increasing costs of disasters and the growing need for emergency management in the public sector. It then goes onto explain how authorities respond to crises and the strategies that they have employed. Finally, it discusses how modern technology improves the capacity for disaster mitigation. As you’ll see, the problem is much more complicated than you might imagine, with all kinds of moving parts.
