Disaster Preparedness Inadequate

Disaster Preparedness Inadequate

Most cities across the country, except for Khorramshahr and Abadan in Khuzestan Province (areas with low seismic activity) “are prone to moderate to very strong earthquakes,” said Seyed Hamid Jalaleddini, deputy of education, research and technology at the Iranian Red Crescent Society (IRCS).  “Based on our research, the level of households’ preparedness for earthquakes is only 9.3,” Salamat News quoted him as saying. In order to prepare families for possible disasters, a scheme was piloted on the International Day for Natural Disaster Reduction (Oct. 12) in one county in each province. It is expected to be implemented nationwide in a few months.
