World is a happening ground for the disasters almost daily. These incidents of mass destruction irrespective of the whether natural calamities or man-made catastrophes cause a huge loss of money, property and lives due to non-planning on the part of the governments and the management agencies. Therefore, steps are required to be taken towards the prevention of these situations by pre-determining the causes of these disasters and providing quick rescue measures once the disaster occurs.
