Editorial: Shocking Reminder To Make Disaster Plan

Disaster plan in case of terror attack at Olympics

Top Stories

Items were knocked off shelves, windows were smashed, a concrete fence collapsed, and there was minor rockfall at Mangaweka, in the Manawatu Gorge and at the Anzac Cliffs. Heart levels raced as people clambered for safety under tables or in doorways, and some people could be seen crying in Palmerston North’s Square after evacuating nearby buildings. The Pahiatua-Pongoroa Rd was closed and power was cut to some areas. The consensus seems to be that it was the biggest quake felt in this region for many years, perhaps even in living memory. It was sudden, unusually violent, and anyone who says they were not scared should be viewed with suspicion. If yesterday’s earthquake has not got you thinking about how prepared you and your family are for a major disaster, now is the time Survival Bag to give it serious consideration. A survey in 2012 of New Zealanders’ level of disaster preparedness found Manawatu people led the country – but that is not saying all that much.

Under the revised plan, the government will put stronger measures in place to cope with nuclear disasters in light of the Fukushima No. 1 power plant crisis. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe vowed at a meeting of the Central Disaster Prevention Council to take disaster prevention measures in anticipation of a major earthquake directly hitting Tokyo or one predicted to occur in the Nankai Trough off central and western parts of the country. We will take all possible steps to prepare for natural disasters with a continued sense of vigilance and protect the lives and properties of the people, Abe said. Based on the revision, municipalities are required from April to create lists of the most vulnerable people, including the disabled, to prevent a recurrence of what happened in 2011 when many elderly people failed to evacuate. Evacuation of people with special needs is expected to go more smoothly if a list of their names, addresses and contact numbers is compiled and shared with neighborhood associations and social workers. The Fire and Disaster Management Agency has found in a study that a little less than 30 percent of municipalities had not created such lists as of last April. To cope with a nuclear disaster, the government will distribute iodine pills, which help prevent thyroid cancer, beforehand to those staying within 5 km of atomic plants.

Start by gathering enough for three days. Anything after that is a bonus. We could camp out quite comfortably for a long while if necessary. We have enough supplies for a few months including food, plus seeds to plant if necessary, water, cooking and fuel, bedding, clothing, medical supplies and communications, plus shower and toilet facilities. We also have a rain water collection plan and plenty of firewood. If there is a disaster, our plan is to stay put on our property if possible, as we live in the country. This is for security reasons and also so as not to drain resources that would be needed for other people.
