DISASTER MANAGEMENT

Introduction

Bitou Disaster Management with all sections and departments believe together we can take great strides to try and reduce the occurrence or impact of disasters and ensure that we can cope in the best way possible when they do occur. DISASTER MANABEMENT IS EVERYONE’S BUSINESS.
 

Mission

To save life, property and the environment.

We ALL need to think ‘safety’ and act safely.

 TASK

It is our aim at the Disaster Management to identify, prevent or reduce the occurrence of disasters, and to soften the impact of those hazards that cannot be prevented.

We perform a co-ordination role, ensuring that multiple emergency and essential services work in an integrated and efficient manner, both pro-actively (risk reduction, planning and preparedness) and re-actively (response, relief, recovery and rehabilitation). Respond to all types of incidents/emergencies.
Emphasis must be made on planning and risk reduction to mitigate effect and impact
Response must be co-ordinated and relief and recovery towards rehabilitation done as quickly as possible to bring those affected back to normality
 
Goal

To implement risk reduction strategies on identified risk and plan accordingly.
Expand knowledge about the disaster risks and hazards to the community.
