PREFACE

Disasters, whether caused by natural forces - like earthquakes, floods, or pandemic, or human forces - like war, terror, Cyber-attacks, or accidents, are nearly impossible to be prevented. However, the outcome of such disasters can be downscaled and managed significantly with proper planning and preparation. Outcome of such disasters may include significant loss of life, severe physical and mental effects on population and heavy burden on community and economics, as well as significant material losses, destruction of critical infrastructures and elementary services - from food or medical supply to traffic control.
Such disasters, if not adequately prepared for, can cause any nation a severe economic, psychological, and political crisis and cause instability in the country and region. Grim scenarios can range from hunger and mass displacement of residents, thru riots, looting and political shift by power and/or economic collapse and bankruptcies and can even result in war or armed conflict.

“Preparation is always better than panic”

A well-prepared nation with adequate Crises and Consequence Management system and planning and preparedness program - Community, Organization, Equipment and Training- can mitigate the effects of such events.
