Rescue Operations

Rescue Operations have to be planned well to be effective.
The three major factors to be planned during a rescue operation are …

  • Man-power
  • Rescue equipment
  • Method of rescue

In a rescue operation the man-power is very important. If there are skilled rescuers among the local people they could also be involved in the operation. Others who seem adequate can be called to help as in some cases the more the number of people the better the rescue operation will be.

In certain disasters like during floods and earthquakes, rescue equipment plays an important role.

The method of rescue should also be planned well, keeping in mind the nature of the disaster. The operation method should be such that further injuries to the victims are avoided.
