Mitigation of EarthquakeRunning Head: Mitigation of EarthquakeEarthquake mitigation[Student Name][University Name]1
Mitigation of Earthquake
Earthquake used to be commenced due to sudden release of energy in the earth crust thatgenerally produces seismic waves. It is harder to measure actual pace of earthquake;instruments some time don’t give real measurement. However, lower earthquakes beingmost imperceptible while earthquake with seven magnitudes may cause severedestruction. Earthquakes may occur not only because of natural cause but also it showson its consequences. Human made earthquakes used to be come for the reason of geological faults, landslides, nuclear experiment, mine blast, and volcanic activity.However, earthquakes are naturally occurred disasters, and it is far difficult to forge astrategy to prevent from the consequences of earthquake. For instance, Haiti disaster,Katrina disaster, and tsunami disaster. On ground reality, human creature can be saved upto a certain level via employing different techniques of prevention. Emergencymanagement has purpose to aces upcoming expected risk, and it is supposed to give theappropriate solution of those lethal problems. In following paper, we will also deemmitigation strategies.
Impediment in mega cities:
In mega cities, it becomes immense difficult especially in disaster situations. Our purposeis to make you understandable for such mishaps. In 2005, Mexico a largest city of America got stuck in deadlock earthquake. Literary, thousands of people had been died;approximately 400 buildings had been collapsed due to following reason. However, ahuge portion of population was left homeless. In case of larger cities, natural disaster used to act more brutally comparatively as thousands of people are living unsafe,informal. For this particular reason, larger cities are supposed to be more vulnerablenatural hazards. In urbanize areas; it is mandatory to formulate mitigation strategies insuch a way that it can lemmatize the damages caused by earthquake. However, mitigationstrategies have been tailored to squander specific risk, which urban settlements have toface. Skyscrapers building and heavy construction leave no way even for pedestrian to pass through. Apparently, housing demands used to get higher. There is a truth aboutthese practices. In such particular consequences, bank used to rise up its markup rate onhousing investment. There is a prediction that in next month approximately ninety percent of total population living in rural areas would migrate to urban areas. World hasfifteen largest mega cities, solely four are located in highly industrialized countries. Onother hand, facilitation disbursement level varies with respect to rural and urbanizeresidential. People used to move to city to spend live with proper facilitation. (Naibori(2005))
Mitigation strategies:
Emergency management is greatly helpful especially at bad time. The generic purpose of mitigation strategies is to take preemptive measures, and activity base costing and on spotmanagement skills. However, there are three levels of mitigation strategies such as preemptive measures, response and reaction. On other hand, mitigation strategies are thesuitable in offering the ideal solution to balancing the needs of maintaining the integrity,economic development. Mitigation strategies are as such mandate conservation andefficiency. In earthquake case, the generic roles of mitigation strategies are to practice2
Mitigation of Earthquake peace process.
Output of earthquake:
Earthquake is the result of seismic waves due to energy. On other hand, it used to make people homeless, and a great example of destruction used to be commenced. Normallyliving practices used to be disturbed on large scale. On other hand, it becomes difficult,and impossible to change the direction of coming disaster. It is power of planningthrough which organization would remain in safe hands.
In synthesis, earthquake incident used to be commenced due to inside the earthmechanical processes. However, frequency of earthquakes is becoming increase day byday. Human being can not spare himself from upcoming uncertainties; he has only that power in his hands like he can plan to avoid further destruction. Any more, Mitigationstrategies can help out to minimize the consequences of the happening an earthquake.3
