Preparing for Disaster: A PILLARS Guide

PILLARS Guides aim to increase confidence among group members, so that they can successfully manage change within their own situation without the need for outside help. They try to build on existing knowledge and experiences among the members or within their community, so that different ideas can be tried out, adapted, and then either abandoned if not found useful, or adopted if found useful.

Objectives of this guide are to increase awareness of the need to prepare for a possible disaster, to reduce the impact of disasters by helping a community to work together more effectively, by considering their ability to respond to disaster, to enable local facilities to respond adequately to any kind of crisis, and to educate local people in basic emergency procedures.
