b. Defining or expecting flash flood route and flood scope upon the situations.

The determination of flood route and the scope of flood is a complex task, generally it must performed by specialized consultancy on the basis of calculating flood and flood wave caused by dam break, topography materials, materials of river bed etc ... When having no yet conditions to define and calculate specifically, it should be expected the flash flood based on the regional map documents and investigation, research at scenery to determine

c. Listing objects to be affected, affected rate according to different situations.

d. Proposing the proactive plans of prevention, handling, damage mitigation and remedy of consequences, including advance preparation work when the situations have not occurred yet like additional dyke construction, road of evacuation, rescue, equipping means of media, whistle, alarm v.v.
