A District Crisis Group (DCG) meeting was organised by the civil administration in collaboration with the Factory and Broilers Department here on Tuesday. District Collector Parul Patawari chaired.

The DCG is the apex body in the district to deal with major chemical accidents and to provide expert guidance for handling chemical misadventures. The DCG assists in the preparation of the district off-site emergency plan, the Collector said.

Nine hazardous industries are functioning in Jagatsinghpur district of which six industrial houses are recognized sensitive because they deal with ammonia and chlorine gases. The DCG reviews all the onsite emergency plans. The risky industries should be asked to conduct at least one full-scale mock drill at its site each year and the DCG will forward a report to the State crisis group, the Collector said.

Attending the event as a resource person, Disaster Management Institution, Bhopal, deputy director Dr Asit Kumar Patro said the DCG aims to minimise the impact of any disaster through better planning, preparedness and response. DCG Chairman Paradip ADM Kanhu Charan Dhir discussed the disasters both natural and human-made. Factory and Broilers Deputy Director Chandra Kanta Dalei presented the reports on DCG functioning in the district.

The meeting was attended by CISF commandant, CDMO, police personnel, local Transport Department officials, fire officer, General Manager DIC, executive engineers from line departments, a representative from the State Pollution Control Board, and labour officer.
