Disaster Mitigation, Management & Emergency Operation

Course Title : Disaster Preparedness, Mitigation and Emergency Operations
Course Preamble.
Disaster preparedness refers to measures taken to prepare for and reduce the effects of disasters. That is, to predict
and where possible prevent them, mitigate their impact on vulnerable populations, and respond to and effectively
cope with their consequences.
