After investigating the disaster, keeping in mind the Secrets of crisis networking, there are some things which should have been done which would have minimized the damage greatly.
These are the measures that should be taken in the future...
A Consensus of people living in remote areas which are at risk.
An efficient warning system
which covers little villages, and gives warning quickly."Announce early, even when there’s incomplete information.", as AV said in his post
Preparedness is the key to averting disaster.
Form village communities called DMT's (Disaster Management Task Forces) who take care of:
1. Search and rescue
2. First Aid and emergency care
3. Early warning and communication
4. Mob control
5. Emergency shelter and food
6. Damage a****sment and relief
Mock disaster drills to show people how to remain calm and act accordingly
Organise a rating system for NGOs, so we know whom to donate to.
Organise the correct relief
, many spend money on unnecessary aids like clothes and some medicines, which are useful to some degree, but are often wasted. See Poor Naked Africans
