    Predictions Although predicting an Earthquake is very hard, we can use technologies to help identify when, roughly, they are about to happen. For example, we can use things such as satellites as they can monitor the active volcanoes. Also we could use sensors as they can. How to reduce the risk of earthquake damage. To prepare your home to cope better in an earthquake you can: strap hot water cylinders and heat pump water heaters at the top and bottom to the wall framing. Tanks over litres should have a third strap around the centre. If possible, have the cylinder on a .

earthquake to be absorbed when the building deforms. Thus, a building’s ability to resist seismic forces increases, reducing the chance of collapse and so risk to people inside.

Other key methods of preparation include training emergency services, organising supplies, planning, practicing drills and evacuating.

Reducing the impacts of natural hazards Natural hazards create many dangerous scenarios for people and environments. Volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and tsunami are a constant threat. Vulnerability is the potential for harm to the community and relates to physical assets (building design and strength), social capital (community structure, trust, and family networks), and political access (ability to get government help and affect policies and decisions).

Vulnerability also refers to how sensitive a population may be to a hazard or to disruptions caused by the hazard. The key to reducing loss of life, personal injuries, and damage from natural disasters is widespread public awareness and must be made aware of what natural hazards they are likely to face in their own communities.
