Other well-known examples are the aforementioned soldiers who are in a conflict zone, in these situations both parties already have defined areas or territories in which they can keep injured or sick soldiers safe, they are locations where armed attacks they are unlikely and not only serve to heal those who have been injured but also to supply the civilian population with humanitarian aid such as food, water and everything they need to survive while the conflict lasts.
The security zones are spaces already mentioned and that are supported by international organizations, are considered an international law and are governed by the whenever there is some type of conflict between two or more countries. On the other hand, if we talk about security zones in case of natural disasters, there are three types:
- Internal security zones: they are inside a building and their structures are much more resistant so they can protect people in a situation of risk.
- External security zones: as their name indicates, these are places located in parks, parking lots, squares, stadiums and have previously been approved and delimited by the authorities to be easily recognized.
- Concentration areas: these are places where the population is temporarily supplied with resources such as food and drinking water, basic health care is given in the event of natural disasters and that have left said population in a precarious situation.
Examples of security zones:
- Parking lots.
- Patios and sports tiles within a school, institute or university.
- The highest floors in buildings in tsunami cases.
- Environments with resistant and spacious structures within a building either to protect themselves during an earthquake or for an easy and fast evacuation.
- Territories away from any type of armed attack in a war conflict.
- Parks where there are no poles or structures that can collapse.
