                 The District Disaster management plan is prepared under Section 31 of DM Act, 2005. The objective of DISASTER MANAGEMENT PLAN is to pre-define the roles of the concern person responsible to tackle such situation as in case of any emergency. This in turn, helps in responding any emergency effectively at the shortest possible time and thereby minimizing loss of lives and properties.

Disaster basically means any natural or manmade catastrophe of substantial extent causing significant physical destruction of properties, loss of life, degradation of environment and which disrupts the normal functioning of society and Government and adversely affects people’s security.            


  1. Planning and implementing measures to mitigate or reduce the risk of disaster.
  2. Mitigating the severity or consequences of disaster.
  3. Preparedness for emergencies and disaster.
  4. Assessing the effect of disaster.
  5. Providing emergency Relief and Rescue and post Disaster Rehabilitation and Re-construction.


  1. The Plan establishes an administrative structure for a systematic, coordinated and effective response at the district level. The purpose of the plan is to:
  2. Define a system of coordination at the district level.
  3. Identify all the responder agencies at the district level, and assign functional responsibilities to each of them.
  4. Establish a central facility in the district, which enables all the responder agencies to interact and coordinate their efforts.
  5. Suggest hazard-specific preparedness, response and mitigation measures.
  6. Plan resource requirements, and coordinate with the state government for requisitioning more resources.
  7. Provide an inventory of resources, key facilities and addresses for deployment and assistance towards preparedness and mitigation.
  8. Responding to an urgent call of society to change the paradigm from the traditional practice of giving relief towards reducing the risk of disaster, the Govt. is emphasizing that at all level; administration’s primary role should be the preparedness, mitigation, reduction and response of a disaster based on community participation.

Plan Evaluation: –

I. The purpose of evaluation of DDMP is to determine:-

  1. The adequacy of resources
  2. Coordination between various agencies
  3. Community participation
  4. Partnership with NGOs
  5. The ease of understanding and using the plan will also be important consideration. The plan will be updated when shortcomings are observed in: –
  6. Organizational structures
  7. Available technologies
  8. Response mechanism following reports on drills or exercises.


  1. Since the whole area of the district comes under seismic zone- V, vulnerability to earthquake Disaster is very high.
  2. The plain areas like Pasighat Sub-Division, Ruskin, and Mebo of the district are vulnerable to flood including flash flood / erosion, cloud burst and storms especially during monsoon.
