Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Disaster management is
a very important subject in today’s business environment. However, one of my experiences
regarding this subject is that, many are the times we are caught unaware by a
disaster. This is so because our disaster preparedness is usually not up to
standard. Most of the disasters which have hit the world in the recent years
have had greater impacts which could have being reduced. For instance, recent
earthquakes have led to many deaths, yet countries could have done better by educating
more people on how to manage such disasters. Another experience is that we
usually lack enough resources to face different disasters. In most cases,
countries start looking for resources to fight a disaster after it has occurred.
We even lack clear disaster preparedness. Generally, my experience with
disaster management is that we need to be always prepared to face any given disaster;
otherwise the effects of disasters will forever be quite high.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
