MINIMISING DAMAGE FROM EARTHQUAKES

Most deaths are caused by the collapse of buildings, these can be minimized if:

  • Present building are reinforced

  • New building are designed to withstand earthquake shock

  • Tall building are not building in high risk areas.

  • Single storey are built instead of multi-storey building.

  • Evacuation route and passage ways ( for rescuer and medical team) are considered in land use planning.
