A disaster resistant college understands the threat posed by natural hazards to its campus and its mission. It actively implements policies, programs, and practices to address its risk. It integrates loss reduction into its teaching and public service activities. A well-prepared college has well prepared students.

artificial disaster. Whatever the scale of the disaster, members of the local community will carry out the first response.
