Emergency management exercises on rescue and rehabilitation tasks are currently being carried out in various regions and states to prepare for the potential natural disaster and ensure effective relief efforts and cooperation.
Military personnel practise rehearsal with members of the police, fire brigades, red cross, social rescue groups and locals at the Township stadium of Namseng, Mongpan, Mongnaung and Mongshu in Shan State (South) and basic education middle school in Sittway Township in Rakhine State.
In addition, in the event of a natural disaster, disaster relief teams are preparing in advance to be able to provide assistance and rescue operations, preparing storm protection buildings (Cyclone Shelter), and arrangements are being made to ensure that five types of food and drinking water are sufficient in the respective areas.
Yangon Region Chief Minister U Soe Thein, Yangon Command Commander Maj-Gen Zaw Hein and officials inspected the preparation for the natural disaster at People’s Square in Dagon Township.
Furthermore, the coordination meeting of the Natural Disaster Management group in Chin State was held at the meeting hall of the Chin State Government office.
