Earthquake professional rescue teams and local governments,
as well as the search and rescue teams organized by the army are
important components of earthquake relief. However, during the period
between the earthquake and the arrival of the rescue team,
people and residents in the disaster area should avoid danger timely
and help mutually, which are more effective in avoiding the disaster
or rescuing the victims.
The principle that should be followed in earthquake relief is
"from easy to difficult". Rescue the survivors in building's edge,
and those who are easy to be rescued first because of the survivors
with slight wound can quickly enrich rescue teams and expand the rescue
activities more reasonably. In addition, pay special attention to places
with dense population such as hospitals, schools,
hotels and other crowded places.
In order to prevent epidemic disease, it is necessary to
carry out large-scale epidemic prevention work in time
after the earthquake disaster. The anti-epidemic medical team
should visit and treat the injured, vaccinate and spray all kinds of
disinfectant in time. Local people and rescue teams should immediately
begin to restore water supply systems, garbage transport
and sewage discharge systems and other sanitation facilities.
A growing number of earthquake examples show that the human
have been able to resist the devastating effect of earthquakes
to some extent through scientific and reasonable prevention,
fighting, rescuing and other measures and people have achieved the goal of
effective disaster reduction. We firmly believe that although earthquakes
are inevitable, the damage they cause can be greatly alleviated
and even avoided.
