Mitigation phase

The common contribution from these agents is giving precautionary measures to the public in case of earthquake and educating people about this natural disaster. 2. Define these occupations and discuss the different roles of each in mitigation. What kind of information would help people in each occupation work together to help mitigate the impacts of future earthquakes? School board is an organization appointed by the government in order to govern the overall activities of schools in a particular state. According to (Usavage,2011)A school board is a legislative body of citizens called school directors who are elected locally by their fellow citizens and who serve as agents of the state legislature. A psychologist is a doctor who specializes in treating mental illness and disorders. Geologists is a scientist who studies about the constitution of earth .Construction engineer is the one who plans , designs and construct buildings. An architect mainly is a creative person who designs a building layout and a politician is an individual who make public policy and administers national affairs. These people also have different roles to play in mitigation of earthquake. School board can alert students regarding earthquake occurrence and preventive measures. The psychologists can pacify and treat the people traumatized by earthquake. Geologists can make public awareness about the aftermath of an earthquake. Construction engineers can help the public to built earthquake proof building for safe future. Architect can analyze and plan building structure which can survive earthquake to an extent. Politicians can implement strategies and earthquake funds to aid the victims of earthquake hazard. The kind of information that would help these parties to mitigate the impacts of earthquake is as follows: a) Understanding the nature of earthquake activity b) What action needs to be taken by common men in order to not get victimized by earthquake? c) Which regions in a country are most prone to earthquake? 3. Outline the tasks you need to do. These tasks include making internal assessments and working together toward long-term solutions in a collaborative manner with multiple agencies. Some internal assessments include determining potential risks, prioritizing activities according to life safety, number of people exposed, cost, and probability the hazard will occur again. On the occurrence of earthquake there is a high chance of development of tsunami or landslides. The rescue plan for saving the people living in coastal areas should be structured efficiently. Moreover there should be warning and alert to people living in suburbs regarding the arrival of landslides. Due to the ground shaking there can be considerable loss to buildings which are vulnerable and equipments which are lose fitted. Damage to this equipments and building can lead to exposure of toxins and chemicals into the environment. This can cause serious damage to the people in the area affected by earthquake. It is also highly essential to keep a record of people living in specific area in order to estimate the loss of life which can happen during the occurrence of earthquake, tsunami and landslides. The earthquake risk assessment must be carried out by different agencies of government and action must be taken according to the arrived outcome. As per
