Retrofitting Hospitals
PDF File Size: 1.15 MB | Download   
During a disaster, health centres and hospitals are critical life-lines. They become the central focus for dealing with those directly affected by the emergency. Not only do they need to cater to existing patients, but must be ready to attend to the hundreds who will suffer the outcomes of the disaster. It is imperative that health facilities survive the disaster and that health workers within do not become casualties due to the disaster. During an earthquake what kills people is collapsing buildings and heavy equipment and furniture crashing on victims.
