Whenever there is a calamity, the goal is to minimize casualties. However, this is often not achieved because of one common reason: the people are not aware of the intensity of a disaster whether it is a typhoon, hurricane, earthquake or fire. In spite of the efforts of broadcast and radio channels, still, a lot of citizens became casualty simply because they were uninformed or they very limited information. This infographic proved that connecting to social media is one of the best ways to disseminate information about a calamity.
1. Radio channels and TV stations often send out their personnel to cover a live onslaught of a typhoon but because not everyone especially teenagers listen to news on a daily basis, some people have very little information about the coming of a disaster.
2. In the 21st century, the use of social media is very common. Even children have their social media accounts where they knew news about everything that is happening in the world. Hence, social media should indeed be included in your medium for information dissemination.
In addition, some businesses have their own ways of sending information to their employees about the company’s response to the disaster. This has become effective in ensuring that everybody is prepared and can stay resilient despite the attacks of the calamity.
