Tehri. District Disaster Response Force (DDRF) has been constituted on the lines of SDRF for relief and rescue operations in case of disaster during monsoon. These teams have been deployed in all tehsils, which includes 5-5 personnel of PRD and Home Guard. These PRD and Home Guard personnel were given training in search, rescue and first aid by the Disaster Management Department. DDRF was formed by the district administration for the successful soldiers in the training and they were deployed in all the 10 tehsils of the district.
NDRF and SDRF teams take time to reach the spot for relief work in disaster incidents, which delays the start of relief work. In view of this, such a force has been constituted at the district level, which will be deployed in all the tehsils and will be able to give quick response.

The situation in the entire district is being monitored from the control room.
When and how will DDRF respond?
The Ghansali, Narendranagar areas of Tehri district are most vulnerable from the point of view of disaster. Although the SDRF team is already present in Ghansali, due to the large and marginal area, sometimes it used to take a lot of time for the SDRF team to reach the remote areas, which delayed the rescue work. But with the deployment of DDRF teams in tehsils, rescue work will be done immediately in case of disaster, it has been claimed. The district is being monitored by the District Disaster Management Control Room in view of the disaster due to monsoon and the officers and employees have also been instructed to remain alert.
