Especially in natural gas, such as electrical switches, to enable our citizens to take precautions immediately after the earthquake in processes that can cause both fire and poisoning … Then, to ensure that cars do not get on the road, but the roads are open … I hope it is empty. To ensure that the vehicles of firefighters, ambulances, search and rescue teams reach the relevant places and wreckage areas on the roads we consider to be staying. Otherwise? Otherwise, it is a disaster. Let me say this clearly, there is no need to bend it. “

“I had the opportunity to watch a little more television due to my illness. It is really appreciated how successful the AFAD trainings with the Ministry of National Education have been. Because we can observe how our children got their education in schools and how they collapsed, shut down, and held on. However, our citizens, whose age range should collapse and hold on when an earthquake occurs, are standing on the table. We have seen dozens of examples of this in the videos shot. We have many public spots, we make many more public spots. We prepared a video about the first 6 hours of the earthquake, now. we will present it by cutting it into smaller sections. “

Then we start to determine them one by one. Who knows when Allah conservation earthquake?” nobody knows. we try to identify Just them put it after a time. so it who would identify? Turkey Disaster Response Plan within the framework of 26 working detects we found Evacuation Placement Planning Group in our group.

Stating that there may be deficiencies in the works brought to them from time to time, but it should not be seen as bad faith, Soylu continued his words as follows:
“The square meter per person in Istanbul was 1.29 square meters in the gathering areas. At the moment, we increased this to over 2 square meters with our latest work. But some neighborhoods did not have any. Now we have eliminated nothing in some neighborhoods, we have taken our steps to realize this in every neighborhood.
In some neighborhoods it was 0.60 square meters, in some neighborhoods it was 0.80 square meters, we took all of these up and above it. A critical meaning, of course, will be criticism, but I invite people who only criticize to a little bit of mercy. There are so many people here. 493 meetings took place. We are all responsible. We all have other public works. We are all in other institutions, but we are here. “
MEETING AREAS WILL BE HANGED AT THE ENTRANCE OF EVERY BUILDING

Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu said that they will complete the planning by the end of 2020, press the button at the beginning of 2021, and that this work plan will be implemented within one year, as in Kahramanmaraş.
Stating that they have been working with Gendarmerie Search and Rescue, AKUT, IHH, Red Crescent and non-governmental organizations for a long time as seen in the Izmir earthquake, Soylu said, “We are trying to accredit each of them to the AFAD system. We will also see police search and rescue in future earthquakes and disasters.”
Stating that the nutrition group needs a contribution in disasters, Soylu said, “There are municipalities, Religious Affairs, IHH, Hayrat, Beşir, but all of these, we have our police prepared a kitchen for 10 thousand people, our Gendarmerie for 10 thousand, and the union of municipalities for 10 thousand. In addition, our Red Crescent. “We are making preparations to provide this with intermediate stations. We are making containers. We are manufacturing new tents,” he said.
Stating that this state is the people of this nation, Soylu said, “In the most difficult days of our nation, it is our main responsibility to share and extend our hands to all the capacity of our state and the most important abilities of our state and nation. Much more than the most developed countries of the world, including America and Europe. “We have a high capacity to respond to disasters. It is our main responsibility to carry this to a much better point.”
“AFAD IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT INSTITUTIONS IN TERMS OF HARDWARE”
Interior Minister Noble, telling the earthquake that occurred in Turkey in the last 10 years, the words continued as follows:
“We take general measures regarding these. Each of them has an experience and knowledge for us. Therefore, we have to continue this here. This is done in cooperation, together, by interlocking. AFAD is one of the most important institutions in the world in terms of this equipment. there is no need to explore, because the most important issue in an earthquake is to provide coordination and organization.
There is only one thing that needs to be done, here is to be subject to AFAD. It is equipped with his knowledge. It is to act within the framework of Turkey Disaster Response Plan. Every move will be separate, already clear to Turkey Disaster Response Plan that the law will emerge as a violation of regulations fortified with this plan.
Sometimes we take drastic measures during earthquakes, that’s why. To cause complexity here, to create a cacophony and create chaos is to become disreputable when society expects the state. Therefore, it is necessary to put forward a total understanding here. This is not a place to get opportunities.
On the contrary, it is to be able to put forth all the opportunities and possibilities at hand in the service of the nation under the presidency of AFAD in the difficult day of the nation. The rules are certain, we have to put forward the evaluation that can provide this together with these rules. “
Noble reminiscent of Elazig earthquake occurred on January 24, “a section of buildings in Elazig centers that 15-20 days before it was delivered. Promise to our Elazığ and Malatya, was the middle of 2021. Only the intervention of the earthquake is not immediate, Turkey has developed a capacity so May Allah be pleased with our President, our nation, our state, and our nation is not left victims there.
This winter is a process in which the wounds of the citizens are healed before passing through a winter when the container cities are moved to homes, especially in some places.
