AHODs/HODs sensitized on Incident Response System

AHODs/HODs attending the one day state level sensitization programme on IRS at the Secretariat Conference Hall.
Kohima, February 20 (MExN): The Nagaland state Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA) in collaboration with National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), organized a one day state level sensitization programme on ‘Incident Response System’ (IRS) with all the AHODs/HODs at the Secretariat Conference Hall.
The Chief Secretary, Lalthara graced the function as the chief guest while J.K.Sinha, member NDMA, MHA, GOI, gave an introduction on the IRS. In his address, he stated that the IRS incorporates all the duties that may be performed in case of any disaster or event. Stressing on the importance of the IRS, Sinha said that it is put in place and stakeholders trained in their respective duties and roles; it will help reduce chaos and confusion during actual incident management.
It may be mentioned that the IRS consists of useful features like Management by objectives, Unity and Chain of Command, Transfer of command, Organization flexibility, Area command, Unified command, Common Terminology, Mobilisation, Deployment and Demobilisation, Incident Action Plan, Information Management, Proper documentation of the entire response, Responder’s Safety, Media management and Agency Coordination.
A very interactive session followed after the address, with bureaucrats putting up questions on how the IRS can actually work in Nagaland.  Earlier the programme was chaired by the Secretary RR&DM, T.Ao, IAS, while the welcome address was given by the Home Commissioner. The programme ended with vote of thanks from the Deputy Secretary NSDMA (Home), Vyasan R, IAS.
