World has changed its perception about #Odisha’s ability to deal with disasters in the course of last two decades. There was a time when we evoked pity. Today, the Odisha model of disaster management draws global admiration.
The role of our elected representatives changes significantly during times of distress. From ward members to CM, everyone will be trained on disaster and pandemic management.
We will train members of our Mission Shakti groups, Vana Surakya Samitis, and other community based organizations and equip them with the knowledge required to manage disaster and pandemics.
The Council of Ministers has resolved to undertake systematic & detailed training programmes to make Odisha a leading state in disaster preparedness – ready to tackle any disaster whether it’s biological or climatic. The objective is to have a ‘Yodha in every home of Odisha’.
