What is preparedness?
Preparedness refers to the state of being ready and well-equipped to respond effectively to emergencies, disasters, or unexpected situations. It involves a combination of planning, organization, training, and resource allocation to minimize the impact of potential risks and ensure the safety and well-being of individuals, communities, and organizations.
Preparedness is a crucial component of emergency management and disaster risk reduction. By being prepared, individuals and organizations can minimize the loss of life and property, expedite recovery efforts, and increase overall resilience in the face of various threats, including natural disasters, public health crises, and human-made emergencies.
