Why is it important?

The Health Belief Model-Based Intervention (HEBI) module improved community flood preparedness by increasing knowledge, skill, preparedness, perceived benefit, perceived barrier, and action cues. As a result, the community should be aware of this module.


Community flood preparedness ensured that every crisis decision had the least impact on humans.
