Disaster and Information

In a disaster scenario, how is the information about safety spread ? If I am in a disaster what would I expect and how should I behave and what should I be careful about.

Two aspects are important in my opinion, a means of transport and a means of communication. If these can be setup effectively and fast, the prolonged effects of a disaster can be reduced.

I think, railways is the most efficient means transport. Being able to transport large number of people over large distances. But railways as of today have railway tracks and railway tracks are not easy to lay ? If there is a effective way to lay tracks fast it could transport people out of into the disaster zone fast.

 

World Around

With the images of devastation around because of either way or natural catastrophes, I wonder if I can help someway to help. I know there are ways like donating money or probably even having the ability to physically present there; but is there a way one can contribute with using myself as a resource in the current space and time. In being having the ability to contribute as of where I stand currently in my house without having really to change anything I am doing right now.

For example, is it possible to donate money in ways that does not explicitly involve writing a cheque ? Like contributing a day’s electricity bill into charity as one example or some cause that you believe in like education, children health, research about batteries, nano technologies, saving the amazon forest.

My thoughts are not very mature as of now how to contribute to the world around in a way that it is right at this moment and I have the opportunity to contribute everyday and it is not a one time thing and I have continued interest and continued contribution.
