Emergency management based on a historical perspective case study
- Problem Statement
- Literature Review
Previous study proposes that emergencies are accidents and therefore are unforeseen. While the term emergency implies a condition of urgency and need, and thus implies lack of preparation and need for a response, this view is not accurate. While the incidence of accidents leads to crises, it is not possible to use historical information to predict accidents and therefore make further preparations.
The increase is an attribute if climate change and the increased severity of the accidents is a result of increased populations in the world. Therefore, these are emerging issues, and it would be impossible to use past events to prepare for them because such events do not exist. Therefore, it is possible to predict failures and accident using other means apart from an evaluation of past trends.
