We will be managing Danville crisis based on strength of the Danville society perspective and the problem based perspective. Using our resources, liaising with healthcare providers, social welfare stakeholders, society and government to manage and minimize crisis. We also aim at assessing the risks through risk assessment based on social perception and projections on sensitive social issues. Through planning and holding meetings with various members of the society so as to understand the various weaknesses in the society and they can be managed.
We will also use all the resources at all levels of the Danville area. Management of the crisis is issue based and we intend to tackle issues through assessment and capacity building. This way we will alleviate the suspect and the conflicting social behaviour. By capacity building we will foster social-environmental change and subsequently stop bad social behaviour like, domestic violence, robberies, mugging, ethnic discontent and related social discords.
Capacity building will replace these bad aspects of social behaviour with alternative skills which will benefit the members of the society. Activities like social-economics, education and active participation recreational activities replace the behavior with alternative skills that serve the same function for the individuals with the weaknesses as well as the segments of the society affected or portraying similar bad behavior.
