Imaginet’s Integrated Solutions to HA/DR Missions

Natural calamities and disasters are not only detrimental on the global economy but also brings great impact to low-income families who live on multi-hazard zones or disaster “hotspots” where help is very limited.

Lack of disaster monitoring tools, poor communication channels and inefficient deployment of responders and resources are just few of the reasons that can lead to inadequate response during the emergency phase.

 

The Disaster Management Cycle

Disaster and risk management cycle begins with the impact of the disaster and mobilizing First Responders on a local level, and preparing to receive additional support from National or International Response teams.

The immediate physical impact of a disaster will include deaths and injuries along with infrastructure damage within the affected community. Social impact includes psycho-social, demographic and economic effects of the disaster and are often more difficult to assess than the physical impacts and will need to be addressed in the Emergency & Recovery Phases.

After the initial impact of the disaster has been quantified and first response mobilised, the transition stage, which involves emergency and recovery measures, is implemented. During this Recovery Phase, there is still a risk of incremental loss of life from disease outbreaks requiring real time location based data gathering and assessment.

This diagram emphasis the equal importance of prevention and response in order to continually improve Emergency & Recovery activities to reduce or mitigate risk in future events using FIST’s analytics post Recovery.
