Disaster is a calamity visited upon mankind that overwhelms community response capacity, threatening public health and the environment. The Southeast Asia, particularly Pakistan was badly affected by the natural disasters. Earthquakes and floods claimed many lives and disrupted the life process. In Pakistan earthquakes and floods are frequent. The immediate response to combat the situations by distributing safe relief, maintaining early and sustained recovery was badly affected by recurring aftershocks, scattered population, difficult hilly area, harsh cold weather and lack of planning. These earthquakes and floods inflicted utter devastation on a large scale involving valuable human lives and material destruction. The victims who were not affected physically but have psychologically, socially, emotionally and financially affected. In this modern era of technology, the geological survey reported that we are on fault line of earthquake may face a future disaster. We have some future strategy plan ?Community Oriented Disaster Education System (CODES)? with the objectives of prevention, mitigation and preparedness to lessen the trauma.
