What are the Officers of Department of Disaster PREVENTION and Mitigation doing more than just warning people?  Like to read about their Anticipation PREVENTION skills & doings in that line.  For just warning people we not need them. Would be interesting too to know who in dangerous zones actually read their warning.  And than? What is next?
