Kini nga mga lakang nga agihan buhaton lamang diha sa sitwasyon nga dunay katalagman o kapit-os sama sa panahon sa bagyo, baha, linog, giyera, ug uban pa. Ang tumong ug katuyuan sa magdumala, mao ang paghatag ug luwas, maampingon nga palibot ug ang pag respeto sa paghipos sa mga impormasyon bahin sa hintungdan (survivor), pagpakisayud sa ilang mga panginahanglan, paghatag sa tinuod ug klarong impormasyon mahitungod sa mga serbisyo nga ilang madawat. Kung kini gikauyonan na sa maong hingtundan, himoon na dayon ug “referrals” ug pwede usab ubanan ang maong hintungdan aron makaangkon sa maong serbisyo nga angay kaniya. Kung ang hintungdan usa ka menor de edad gikinahanglan nga adunay kauban nga hamtong (ginikanan, paryente o nagbantay nga edaran nga maoy gisaligan sa mao nga bata).

Ang mga hakbang na ito ay dapat gawin sa panahon ng kalamidad gaya ng gyera, baha, bagyo, at iba pa. Ang pakay ay ang pagbibigay ng ligtas, maingat at nararapat na impormasyon at seguridad para sa biktima upang hindi sila mapahiya sa kanilang komunidad; pag-aalam ng kanilang mga pangangailangan at pagbibigay ng malinaw na impormasyon tungkol sa serbisyong matatanggap. Kung papayagan ng biktima ay gagawin kaagad ang pagsusumbong tungkol sa nangyaring pang-aabuso at kung maaari ay dapat samahan sila sa tagapagbigay ng nararapat na serbisyo. Kung menor de edad ang biktima o di kaya ay bata, dapat may kasama siya na nasa tamang edad na gaya ng magulang o kamag-anak. Titingnan palagi ang kabutihan ng menor de edad o bata.
