U’khand to have mock drill for chemical disaster

Thursday, 30 January 2020 | PNS | Dehradun

To check the preparedness of the administration, the Disaster Mitigation and Management Centre (DMMC) would hold a mock drill for chemical disaster on February 11 and 12.

The drill would be held in the districts of Dehradun, Haridwar and Udham Singh Nagar and would help in checking the preparedness and vulnerability of the industries in talking any accident caused by chemicals.

 Incidentally these three districts of the state have high concentration of industries so the chances of threat from chemicals are more in these districts.

The drills would be held under the watchful eyes of team of National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). The team would be headed by Major General (Retd) V K Dutta who is an expert on the subject.

The executive director of DMMC, Piyoosh Rautela said that table plan for the mock exercise would be prepared in Dehradun on February 4.

He said that the chemical disasters are different from other forms of disasters and they have entirely different set of procedures and safety protocols. Rautela added that the factory workers would be the focus of these trials and they would be educated about ways of tackling the disaster.

Apart from the workers the people residing near the industrial units would also be included in the plan of the mock drills.

The DMMC would synergise with administration, police, health and other departments during these drills.
