Man and nature are the two most vital components of this universe. Nature sometimes is soothing and sometimes ferocious. Whenever it turns to be in bad temper it can bring devastation which is called as disaster. Natural disasters are the manifestation of nature which can take place anywhere and anytime. Disaster management provides quick and timely response to the affected people and participates in relief and rescue operations. Prahar has trained instructors from the National Civil Defence College in disaster management. This Prahar team coordinates in rescue effort, transport of relief material, setting-up of temporary shelters, providing primary first aid and proper hygiene and sanitation.
In the year 2001, there was a devastating earthquake in Bhuj, Gujarat. The destruction caused huge losses of man and material. Prahar immediately sent a team of 8 to the earthquake affected area to provide relief in terms of medicine and food grains and also rescued many people buried under the debris. The authorities of Bhuj appreciated Prahar’s initiative.
