Anyone who has been living in a tropical country surrounded by waters, such as the Philippines, knows how much inconvenience a typhoon brings. Suspension of classes, power outages, and interruption of businesses happen because of the heavy floods and robust winds that typhoons bring. Worst of all, such event doesn’t just take away properties, because without the necessary preparations, it can also cause fatalities.
No one exactly knows how severe the negative impact of natural disasters can be. To avert possible dangers that may happen anytime, authorities have been very persistent in reminding people about the importance of preparing a disaster contingency plan.
A disaster contingency plan contains all the measures to take that can manage the risks that a natural disaster may bring.
