A REPORT ON DISASTER MANAGEMENT:

Going against Mother Nature creates imbalance in nature. This results in natural disasters aking place. Natral disasters occur not because of what God does to man, but because of what man does to man.

Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba gave directions to the Organisation in 2002 to start Training the Youth of the Organisation in Disaster Management. This represents a paradigm shift from just Disaster Relief to Comprehensive Disaster Management.

As per His Divine Directions, in 2002, Sri Sathya Sai Seva Organisations, India commenced Disaster Management Train-ing programmes on a National Scale. These efforts got a boost in 2012 when this was made as one of the National Initiatives to mark the 90 th Birthday of Bhagavan and the 50 th year of the Organisation. These efforts created a large pool of trained Sevadals, both as Faculty members for Training and First Response Force during disasters. There is a twin fold focus of these programmes, viz;-

a) To create teams of well trained First Responders during disasters, using a common sense approach with whatever equipment that is available at that time.

b) To create Disaster Awareness in the public at large, particularly the youth. A very brief report on DM / DA activities from 1 st January, 2017 to 31 st May, 2017.
