Introduction to Health Disaster Management

: Develop for yourself a working definition of disasters from a community perspective. From a community perspective, disasters can be defined as events that usually happen abruptly, and which have adverse effects on people’s lives and property, and negatively affects the normal day-to-day functioning of a community, its institutions and social systems. According to the Emergency Management Australia, disasters disrupt community life by causing injury and deaths, and create pressure on the authorities’ capacity to perform their functions effectively due to the strain on available resources (Australian Emergency Management, 2011). Consider three recent events and explain why they meet this definition of a disaster. Three recent events that meet this definition of a disaster include, the Japanese earthquake in 2011, the bushfire in Queensland, Australia, in 2009, and the 2010-2011 flooding in Queensland. The Japanese earthquake fits the definition of a disaster because the event had a serious effect on community life by causing the death and destruction of property. The Queensland bushfire was also unanticipated, and resulted in the loss of human life.
