Mitigation

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

The easiest way to prepare for disaster or nuclear war is to prevent it in the first place. The world governments are actively trying to mitigate the chances of full scale military attacks, acts of terrorism and even natural disasters. When dealing with foreign national threats the best course of action is diplomacy, foreign policy, political measures and of course nuclear disarmament. When dealing with terrorist threats, intelligence and direct action become the main focal points. While natural disasters are hard to prevent the damage can be minimized with long term planning.

Types of Civil Threats

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

In a military situation there are numerous civilian threats, each with their own risks and required responses. The first task is to identify the threat situation of each type of threat. Conventional explosives are amongst the most used weapons against civilians. To protect against traditional bombs there must be a thick concrete shelter. Nuclear attacks are perhaps the biggest threat due to the mass destruction they cause and the following radiation fallout. Switzerland is regarded as the most prepared country. Other threats include Chemical and Biological weapons.

Modern Civil Defense

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009

While civil defense programs still deal in protecting civilians during a military attack the programs are more involved with emergency and natural disaster defense. These programs include crisis management, emergency management, emergency preparedness, contingency planning, emergency services, and civil protection. This would take into account things such as dealing with mass flooding, earthquakes and hurricanes that we have seen in the past few years. These are seen as a bigger threat to most nations than a full scale war.

The term civil defense is broad term that takes on many tasks in a combined effort to minimize the civilian and structural losses in a hostile military situation. The programs involved within emergency operations include prevention, mitigation, preparation, response, or emergency evacuation, and recovery. While the theories of civil defense have been around for a long time the most notable efforts began around the 1920s when nuclear attack looked plausible.
