Accidents and disasters have become a global concern and occur all over the world.A look at the history of the origin of human life from the beginning until now has shown a path full of accidents and disasters.Events such as floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, fires, etc.. have always been a concern of the human mind and have caused countless casualties and injuries to various areas of society's life.The purpose of this review article is to investigate the role of community-oriented interventions of social workers in the field of increasing people's preparedness against natural disasters.

Articles, books and documents related to the subject were reviewed by using the methods of reviewing internal and external sources about natural crises and disasters and in a documentary and library manner.( A review article using 26 Persian sources and 8 foreign sources)

The approach of social workers to accidents and natural disasters that includes a large part of the population includes disaster management, neighborhood self-help and coordination with other organizations and systems. Social workers can play many roles in natural disasters both at the macro level (general society and the affected society) and at the micro and intermediate level (individuals and affected groups).
