Incident Response Teams

Incident Response Teams are to be set up right from the State to the District, Sub-division and Block levels. The co-ordination process between the National, State and District has also been clearly described. Presently the process for the institutionalization of the system is going on through various sensitization and training programs launched all over the country by the NDMA. Up till now 30 Districts in 15 States have already been covered where 3115 officers have been given initial training and teams have been formed at different levels. This program has also been started in the Lal Bahadur Shastri National Academy of Administration and the Sardar Vallabh Bhai Patel, National Police Academy where up till now 1768 officers have been trained on the Incident Response System.
