Handover The Fire Safety Tank To Five Municipality
Abstract:
According to various report it can be seen that Nepal is unsafe in terms of fire.Most of the people are loosing their life and property.As the data shows that more than 500 fires across the country,costing more than 45 lives and NRS 350 million in damage.Strengthening municipal fire services is a key activity of the Nepal Risk Reduction Consortium’s plan for strengthening emergency preparedness and response systems, but to date, despite our partnerships we are not on track to deliver in this area. UNDP’s Disaster Risk Management Programme, with support from UK’s Department for International Development and the Bureau for Conflict Prevention and Recovery, has been an active partner along with Ministry of Local Development in providing the equipment being handed over today and in working to produce this report. These efforts are part of a wider, comprehensive disaster risk management programme that aims to reduce disaster losses. Today’s event contributes to an integrated work plan led by the Government of Nepal that aims to link emergency operations centers with first responders in order to help municipalities become disaster resilient. #UNDP #FIRE_SAFETY #2011
