8 DISASTER MANAGEMENT TIPS FOR Kenyans THIS 2019

Following the recent attack at Dusit D2 Hotel and business center at 14 Riverside Drive, there has been a question of whether we are properly and adequately prepared for disasters in Kenya. Be it a terror attack or a natural disaster, there is a sense of alarm in the country.

If you feel like you don’t know about how to handle disasters, here are some tips on how you can deal with the next disaster.

Know what you’ll face

In some instances, you need to well-educated on the kinds of disasters you are more likely to face and this comes from the area you are in. Evaluate the area and think twice about the situation at hand, not all places experience the same kinds of disasters.

 

Make sure you know how to reconnect with your loved ones

During certain disasters in Kenya Like the Dustin Disaster, if you are not close to your family, then you should be able to come up with a means of reconnecting with them.

They will be worried or they could be in the same disaster with you, but in a different area. During such a time, you should have a set plan as to how you will be able to reach them after things have finally cooled off.

Sign up for emergency alerts and know how officials will communicate with you during a disaster

Subscribing to messages and alerts when disasters are speculating or when they are going on is another thing you can do to ensure that you are on the safe side as a way of preparing yourself for these kinds of things.

There are also likely to be broadcast on radio or TV, so keep alert and be active on both.

Find a way to manage it if you’re caught in it when not at home.

You won’t always be on the safe side when a disaster strikes like in the Dustin Disaster, because more often than not it comes at a time when you least expect it. In this case, you should be able to know what to do and what not to do by the time you’re in such a situation so that you don’t end up freaking out or anything of that sort.

Learn your area’s evacuation routes and shelter locations

Don’t wait for an earthquake to happen for you to be curious as to where the exit routes and emergency shelters. Waiting to the last minute will ultimately lead to more harm that gain to you. Have a map available so that you are able to easily identify and fast and nearby escape route for you and your family.

Always remember that some people will need special education

Kids, infants, people with disabilities and seniors may all need special considerations while planning for an emergency. If you or a family member need medication or special equipment, make sure you have a plan to bring it with you. Talk to your neighbors about how you can help one another in a disaster, and check on each other in case of an emergency.

Learn the necessary emergency skills

If more people knew about emergency skills then the Dustin Disaster would have been delt with betterMake sure you know little things that can make a huge difference, like how to use a fire extinguisher or perform basic first aid.

Get trained in CPR or the even simpler hands-only CPR, which could help save someone’s life even when you least expect it. You can also learn how to shut off utilities in your house in case of a disaster that may damage gas, water or electrical lines.

Find out how to help your community during a disaster

Want to help out even more? Learn how you can be a community leader during a disaster or teach others how to be prepared. Volunteer positions with local emergency response agencies or nonprofits are available in a huge range of capacities.
