Opinion: Protection Against Tidal Waves, National Emergencies Urgent

We are not against the show of sympathy to community members who experience misfortune that is sometimes through no fault of theirs. Of course, showing concern is human and the government cannot be faulted for doing that.

The Daily Graphic, however, believes that there should be adequate warning systems in place to warn people of impending danger, so that they can flee to designated safe zones to save their lives and property.

Better still, places prone to disasters must be labelled as no-go areas for human habitation and the security agencies must work in concert with the relevant government agencies to ensure that there are no trespassers.

We live in times when disasters — natural and man-made — occur anytime and do not discriminate among countries. Both developed and developing countries experience earthquakes, floods and fire disasters.
