Engineers trained in rapid visual survey

The Sikkim State Disaster Management Authority recently conducted a three-day training cum refresher course for civil engineers working under the State government on “rapid visual survey and study of lifeline structures”. The training was supported by the Ministry of Home Affairs and UNDP-India.
While addressing the concluding session of the programme, Land Revenue and Disaster Management Department Secretary-cum-Relief Commissioner, Tsegyal Tashi, urged the technocrats in attendance to help the state government in taking precautionary measures to deal with manmade disasters.
He also sought expert advice in addressing damage control and safety of the people at large in the event of an emergency, adding that the training will also help prepare the required human resource. The valedictory function was also addressed by the State Project Officer of SSMDA, Prabhakar Rai.
