    Chief Secretary Santhi Kumari has announced that GHMC Disaster Response Teams will now cover the Hyderabad Outer Ring Road area to improve their ability to respond to heavy rains and other disasters. This expansion aims to prevent inconvenience for citizens.

    The Chief Minister recently instructed the establishment of a system to prevent trouble for people during sudden rains and floods up to the outer ring road of Hyderabad. A special meeting was held at the Secretariat to discuss this on Tuesday.

    Santhi Kumari mentioned that the Disaster Response Department of GHMC is getting stronger with more staff and machinery to handle disasters. Currently, 30 DRF teams are working under GHMC, and 15 more teams will be added for the ORR area. Special teams with chemical fire prevention training may also be formed due to the presence of many pharma companies in Hyderabad.

    It is important for GHMC officials to work with other departments like municipal, police, electricity, and water boards to ensure people don’t face difficulties. Besides Hyderabad, DRF teams should be set up in cities like Warangal, Karimnagar, and Khammam, with a focus on improving existing teams. Collaboration with the National Disaster Response Force during disasters is also advised for better coordination and response efforts. Additionally, officials should study the performance of disaster response teams in major cities for further improvement.
