Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Les plans d'urgence ou plans catastrophes sont des dispositifs prévoyant l'organisation des secours en urgence en cas de catastrophes ou d'événements de grande ampleur ou à risque majeur mettant en péril la santé des personnes ou l'intégrité des biens.

Modalités générales[modifier | modifier le code] Le plan d'urgence a vocation d'apporter une méthode d'organisation rigoureuse, étudiée, planifiée, enseignée et répétée. La notion de plan d'urgence repose sur la prévision. Il s'agit d'une part de capitaliser l'expérience des événements passés pour améliorer le système et éviter de reproduire les erreurs, et d'autre part de tenter d'envisager des situations nouvelles. La construction d'un plan d'urgence consiste également en la formation du personnel d'intervention afin de pouvoir gérer une situation d'urgence et notamment la maîtrise du stress. Organisation générale[modifier | modifier le code] Cet ordre est en général oral. Emergency management. For the legal concept, see Emergency Aid Doctrine Disaster management (or emergency management) is the term used to designate the efforts of communities or businesses to plan for and coordinate all personnel and materials required to either mitigate the effects of, or recover from, natural or man-made disasters, or acts of terrorism.[1][2] Disaster management does not avert or eliminate the threats, although their study is an important part of the field.

Events covered by disaster management include acts of terrorism, industrial sabotage, fire, natural disasters (such as earthquakes, hurricanes, etc.), public disorder, industrial accidents, and communication failures. Emergency planning ideals[edit] If possible, emergency planning should aim to prevent emergencies from occurring, and failing that, should develop a good action plan to mitigate the results and effects of any emergencies. OperationSAFE. Global Water Foundation. The Global Water Foundation (GWF)is a non-profit organisation dedicated to delivering clean water and sanitation to the world's neediest communities. Professional tennis player Johan Kriek founded the organisation in 2005 after attending meetings of the World Economic Forum in Cape Town, South Africa. The goals of the GWF echo the Millennium Development Goals established at the United Nations' Millennium Summit in September 2000.[1] Headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, with offices in Sarasota, Florida, and Raleigh, North Carolina, in the United States,[2] the GWF's goal is to raise public awareness, contribute technical assistance and fund programs to improve water quality and provide adequate sanitation in schools, rural areas and other communities across developing nations.

Overview[edit] The GWF is in the service of humanity: to help make the world a better place, a healthier place, a safer place and ultimately a place of peace and prosperity.

Resilience of traditional societies in facing natural hazards. Purpose – This article sets out to address the response of traditional societies in facing natural hazards through the lens of the concept of resilience. Design/methodology/approach – This paper considers that resilient societies are those able to overcome the damage caused by the occurrence of natural hazards, either through maintaining their pre-disaster social fabric, or through accepting marginal or larger change in order to survive. The discussion is based on a review of the corpus of case studies available in the literature. Findings – The present article suggests that the capacity of resilience of traditional societies and the concurrent degree of cultural change rely on four factors, namely: the nature of the hazard, the pre-disaster socio-cultural context and capacity of resilience of the community, the geographical setting, and the rehabilitation policy set up by the authorities.
