Human behavior is complicated and complex in normal times, but when individuals must deal with life-altering changes, chaos tends to prevail. Therefore, understanding how people respond to a disaster situation is important in developing strategies to help vulnerable individuals and responders. While it is important that education reaches all people, it also becomes an issue of attempting to change an individual’s behavior into acknowledging there will be disasters and to become prepared for them. This situation leads us back to the issue of individual autonomy. Therefore, it is important to develop strategies to assist individuals in understanding that the benefits of disaster preparedness outweigh its barriers when it comes to surviving a disaster and that being proactive is in their best interest.
