Understanding the responses to disaster from organization also provides specific approaches and concepts that different organizations can use. This includes approaches that involve management and recovery of disasters within any given area. When beginning to look at disaster, there are several levels that are involved to have the correct prevention as well as responses. It is through the organizations insight, behavior and management that the correct responses can be made and that the civilians and victims who are in a disaster can receive the correct recovery. Understanding how an organization works at it's best, as well as how it can be developed for the correct behaviors also allows for a complete structure to develop for responses and assistance in any disaster.
By understanding examples of different programs and how they function within disasters and organizational behavior, is also an understanding of how this alters the outcome for disaster recovery. The first example of an organization that is designed to respond to disasters is the Federal Office for Civil Protection. This specific organization is dedicated to over 168 governments around the globe, beginning in the year 2005 with implementation programs to help civilians who suffer from natural disasters.
The concept is based around what is known as the Hyogo Framework, which has become a blueprint for global areas and is designed to help save lives when there is a natural disaster in a specific region. This is being designed with ways to reduce casualties as a preventative measure if it is seen that a natural disaster occurs in the region. This is combined with both a global platform to help with the recoveries, as well as national committees that are designed to implement the disaster recovery when a natural disaster occurs in the area (Federal Office for Civil Protection, 2008).
The design that the Federal Office for Civil Protection offers is one that shows several areas for disaster recovery, all which are initiated at an international and national level. The first is the categories that the Federal Office for Civil Protection uses as a response method to the natural disasters. This includes preventative care for natural disasters. Educational programs, capacity development, building infrastructures against natural disasters, researching risks and building health facilities are all a part of the care that is given for the disaster recovery of this area.
The second part to this is for disasters that have already occurred. The plans that are used in relation to this are relationship building, insurance coverage for risk management, safety zones for the disasters and building complex emergency routines for the disasters. Having both preventative care in several categories, as well as response systems for the natural disasters is what begins to classify this specific example.
According to the classification system of Mullins, there are several aspects to consider with this. The first is that the organization works in relation to governments and civilians. The second is that it is an inter-relational as it works on an international level in collaboration to these specific affiliations. This is combined with being an organizational based affiliation, without moving into the public unless it is for help, assistance or training. The sociological basis of this includes a link to the public; however, the main basis is an internal classification that affiliates with government resources.
This shows a link to the public; however, only resources and information is given for assistance with natural disasters. There is no participation that is completely involved from the public within this organization which moves it into an internal system for disaster recovery (Mullins, Wayman).
