Every disease that is caused in a state where mass of people are affected requires a wide range of interrelated program, action, and activities that will see to it that the situation is under control. This calls for prevention measures to be facilitated so that health risk can be controlled in a resilient aspect, this should be offered by the national and state government where by polices are implemented the will enhance actions in a flexible perspective. In this case, the intervention will be described in following levels: Primary Prevention, Secondary Prevention, and Tertiary Prevention. To begin with, the primary level where it aims at preventing injuries before they occur or any interrelated hazards that are prone to occur. Nursing Intervention that can be reflected in this case is educating people about health and safe habits so that prevention can partake on the primary basis. This means that people in this situation ought to be prevented on various factors regarding how earthquake situations can be handled.  

 Secondary prevention is designated to reduce the impact that is caused in a certain situation. This means that various measures ought to be facilitated so that the situation can be in control. This means that programs and activities ought to be used so that the initial aspect of the health condition can obtained. In case, the main obligation is to make sure that long-term problems are dealt with in appropriate standards. This calls for regular intervention and analysis of the repercussions that are caused by the earthquake, which means that the situation can be controlled reflecting the intervention offered. More so, this involve prevention of communicable diseases after the earthquake has occurred. It is in this case a plan and a control vector are initiated so that any venerable effects can be deterred with appropriate measures.  

 Tertiary prevention is based on how the situation is responded to, so that the repercussion caused by the disaster can be minimised and soften the situation. This is done so that people involved can manage long-term problems, health problems, and any injuries. In this case, support groups can be initiated so that people can work on the basis of knowing what to do and maintaining the situation. This means that the other level and the approach that is partaken in controlling the situation is reflected in Tertiary prevention. More so, internal and external perspective are enhanced so that a better approach can be obtained this mean that every agency either in the local, state or federal government is essential so that a better solution can be offered.   

 The speculated disaster of the earthquake can be defined by engaging all level in a proportional manner, this is because the situation is deified in a large scale since it  affect the people in a large scale aspect. The reason as to why all this phase are defined to be important is because an overall solution can be obtained in a more flexible aspect and the affected people can come up with variable solutions in a more resilient aspect. In addition, defining how the situation can be controlled is based on the approach that is facilitated. An earthquake disaster can be determined by the plate tectonics phenomena that is based on interaction of rigid lithospheric plates that define the magnitude that the earthquake will occur .

 In the Primary Prevention, the intervention that is obtained is defined to be facilitating educational programs that will help in ensuring the every person is briefed on what is expected to be done. This means that every kind of people or agencies will be recommended to work in this situation so that an appropriate solution can be obtained. By doing this, every aspect that tends to emerge can be well addressed because control vectors are used whereby every situation is kept under control. More so, it implies people will gain knowledge and tips for overcoming challenges you might face along the way.
