It can also play role in timely broadcasting of warnings and thus reducing the damages caused by the disasters and help in evacuating people to safer places and saving lives. Therefore, role of media is a very responsible. It acts like a bridge between Disaster Risk Reduction Planning organizations (Government or Private) and the public both before and after the disaster.
