Chetna raths for disaster management awareness



PATNA: The Bihar State Disaster Management Authority (BSDMA) has directed all the District Disaster Management Authorities (DDMAs) in the state to take out Chetna Rath at block and panchayat level to create awareness about flood safety, disaster preparedness and risk management under the 'Observe Flood Safety Week' programme in the state from June 1.

Giving this information, the vice-chairman of BSDMA, Anil Kumar Sinha, said a quick response to disasters was imperative to reduce the loss of human lives and damage to property, and so the people and volunteers need to join hands to face the calamities.


The DDMAs will create public awareness regarding disaster mitigation and risk reduction, safety measures will be publicized at railway stations, panchayat bhawans, airports, libraries, hospitals, banks, post offices, civil courts, bus stands, shopping complexes, hats and bazaars, cinema halls, municipal bodies, and public places, he said.

Keeping in view the vulnerability to floods and the need for wide public awareness activities, the BSDMA will organize two state-level workshops, Sinha said. The first workshop on 'Flood Preparedness and Resource Mapping' will be organized here jointly by the BSDMA and Unicefon June 1 to build new partnerships between the NGOs and state officials to strengthen existing relationship and promote better coordination among the stakeholders involved in addressing the issues of flood in Bihar by way of information sharing. This workshop will focus on the issues ranging from the status of flood preparedness in Bihar, the findings of disaster perception study and preparedness of government and NGOs.

The second workshop on 'Flood Risk Management: Flood Forecasting, Monitoring and Mitigation' will be organized here on June 6. Sharing of best technological practices implemented across the country for flood preparedness, response and mitigation will be in focus at the workshop.

Sinha said people having the skills of disaster preparedness and reduction can become 'Apda Mitra' to be involved as volunteers during the floods. He said songs relating to disaster preparedness have been sent to the DDMAs. Measures need to be taken for preparing kits in every home to save important documents from being washed away during floods. Cattle safety measures too need to be taken and structural mitigation model has to be prepared as part of flood safety measures, he said.
