PDF File Size: 604 KB | Download   
Nepal is prone to different types of disasters with fire being one of the most recurring. Every year, particularly in the dry season, a large number of incidents of fire are reported, mainly in Tarai, where about three-quarters of houses are built with thatched roofs vulnerable to fire. Although the number of deaths is lower than other disasters, the average loss of property is high. Due to haphazard urbanization and industrialization, urban areas are also becoming more vulnerable to fire. Poor fire
services, few and old fire engines, insufficient skilled human resources combined with narrow lanes and clustered households is increasing vulnerability to fires.The Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium (NRRC) was officially launched in 2011 with five flagship priorities. Flagship 2 of NRRC is focused on Emergency Preparedness and Response and is coordinated by Ministry of Home Affairs (MoHA) and UNOCHA.
