Preparedness and the Myth of Knowledge
Have you ever met someone who’s never ridden a bike, heard a song on the radio, received a piece of mail, pet a cat, eaten an apple, caught a cold or seen an ice cube? That’s because you’ve never been to North Sentinel Island, nor should you ever go.
The disasters after the disaster
Earthquakes are not a disaster. Earthquakes are the first domino in the series of disasters that will follow. We mitigate for the risks that are too large for and individual to handle; we prepare for the risks that are too small for the government to reach. The marriage of mitigation and preparedness gives rise to resilience.
