There are many risk reduction success stories around the world. One of the success stories happened in India. This story will explain the importance of both a mitigation plan & a contingency Plan. It is about how the Odisha State government saved many lives from Cyclone Phailin in October 2013. The maximum tốc độ was 260km/h. The number of casualties was small compared with the previous similar disaster in late 90’s. Only 40 casualties were reported in the 2013 disaster compared khổng lồ 10,000 lives in the previous disaster. How is this possible?
The risk of the cyclone was foreseen. The operation began with early warnings from the Indian Meteorological Department. The warning was disseminated 4 days before the expected date. The government phối up a few mitigation plans such as accurate forecast, disaster response centers, Operation shut-down, response teams, etc.
The mitigation plan outlines the planning process for identifying và implementing actions lớn reduce or eliminate business losses, loss of life, property, functions, etc due to lớn any type of hazards.
No, it was not yet victorious after the hit. It would be easy lớn expect massive damage caused by a 200km tốc độ cyclone. Nearly 200,000 houses were damaged. 14,000 villages in 12 districts were affected. Thousands of trees were uprooted. Roads, boats, etc were badly damaged, & crops worth millions were destroyed. That’s when contingency plan steps are taken into action.The contingency plans set by the government are rehabilitation plans, emergency aid programs, etc.
It is important to lớn understvà that Contingency planning is not just about major disasters; it is about preparing for events such as loss of data, resources, customers, & other unknown disputes. When the response (PLAN A) to the situation is poor, it may cause a dramatic impact on the future of the business or environment. Then here comes PLAN B.
