Urban disaster science is a subject that studies the action mechanism of disaster system and urban system. It is a comprehensive subject of modern disaster science, accident and urban theory, urbanization development strategy. Urban disaster prevention planning is an important part of urban planning. People's Republic of China Planning Law clearly stipulates that the preparation of urban planning should conform to the requirements of urban fire , explosion, earthquake, flood, landslides and other anti-disaster prevention requirements.
Urban Disaster Prevention systematic exposition of the disaster and urban disaster, the scope of urban disaster prevention and related research, analysis of earthquakes, floods and geological disasters, fire, air strikes and other major urban disaster, an overview of the City Disaster Risk Analysis and Evaluation , the city's comprehensive disaster prevention system. It focuses on the methods and procedures for urban earthquake disaster prevention, flood, fire, air defense, prevention of geological disasters and other urban disaster planning and disaster prevention engineering. The purpose of this course is to enable students to master the knowledge of disaster prevention planning, to understand the role of various types of disaster prevention engineering system in the city.
Through the course of this systematic study, they can master the basic principles and project planning and disaster prevention design about urban earthquake , flood control and drainage, fire protection ,air defense and other disaster, develop initial capacity and the basic quality of the research, organization, decision-making ,management in urban disaster prevention and reduction. It can provide a series of defensive systems and early warning network for the sustainable development of the city, and reliable scientific basis for the disaster protection of the modern city .
