Training Analysis is most often used as part of the system development process. Due to the close tie between the design of the system and the training required, in most cases, it runs alongside the development to capture the training requirements. The training need analysis is done considering variable factors of intensity, affected population and severity of damage need to be quickly assessed based on which government and nongovernment agencies can allocate and deploy relief. The training requirements would be based on emergency response functions. Each Emergency Response Function [ERF] consists of sub-functions. The ERFs are:

  • Coordination and Command
  • Source and Impact Control
  • Population Care
  • Medical Care
  • Maintaining law and order

Capacity development of stakeholders shall be built across all mission streams and across all stakeholders. It involves the development of a cadre of individuals across SDMA and State Departments, DDMA and agencies working/supporting the District Administration and the Local Authority (including the PRIs, Urban Local Bodies).

Standardization of training is important and for this there is a need to develop target oriented curriculum, conduct Training of Trainers (ToT), evaluation and certification (for select groups say, Certification of masons in disaster-resistant construction practices, Certification of Volunteers in Search & Rescue/First-Aid). Reporting of training across the State should be made available through the form of annual reportt.

Following key areas have been identified (for design and development of modules, implement training):

  • Earthquake resistant design for engineers and architects
  • Seismic strengthening and Retrofitting of buildings and infrastructure
  • Construction technology training for construction workers (masons, bar benders among others)
  • Assessment of seismic safety of buildings and infrastructure
  • Damage and Needs Assessment
  • Search and Rescue & First Aid
  • Flood Rescue
  • Mass Casualty Management
  • Trauma Management
  • Hospital preparedness and Mass Casualty Management
  • Collapsed Structure Search and Rescue and Medical First Response
  • Public Health in Emergencies (Safe drinking water and sanitation, Alternate water resources identification during emergency conditions, Supply management)
  • Procurement procedures for goods and services in emergency situations
  • Shelter and Camp Management Climate Change and cross cutting themes
  • Gender issues in Disaster Management
  • Role of PRIs and ULBs in DM (mainstreaming efforts in development planning)
  • Preparation of DM Plan (Sector, Department, Administration, Unit Level – School, Hospital, Business establishment etc)
  • Community-Based Disaster Preparedness
  • Role of Volunteers in Disaster Management
    All the government line departments who have a stake in different phases of the disaster management will have to identify their roles and carry out training need analysis of their personnel. The list of the Government Depts. is as under;
