Disaster Response: How Markham Investigations and Protection (MIP) Ensures Your Safety
A disaster is an unexpected event that causes significant disruption and destruction and often poses a threat to human life and property. These calamities come in various forms, ranging from natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, and wildfires to man-made crises like terrorist attacks, civil disturbances, and infectious disease pandemics. When disasters strike, they can create chaos and lawlessness and threaten critical infrastructure. The aftermath may lead to looting, burglary, and workplace disruptions, leaving local response and mutual aid pools overwhelmed. It is during these trying times that a comprehensive and effective disaster response strategy becomes crucial.
