4. NGOS AND VOLUNTARY ORGANISATIONS

The non-governmental organisations and voluntary agencies play an important role in disaster management and provide a strong band of committed volunteers with experience in managing the disasters. Their strength lies in the choice of their manpower, the informality in operations and flexibility in procedures. These organisations enjoy a fair degree of autonomy and hence can respond to changing needs immediately.

However, in order to maintain uniformity in operations and effective co-ordination, it is desirable that they follow the standards of services (as given in the Guidelines), information exchange and reporting so as to enable the Ward Officer to have a total picture of resource availability, disbursements and requirements. NGOs therefore will be assigned specific tasks by the Ward Officer to undertake relief work within the overall institutional framework. As and where possible, NGOs may also be able to improve the quality of delivery of services.

Specific activities in which NGOs/Private Sector can be involved during disaster management operations are :

· Search and rescue operations
· Information dissemination
· First aid
· Disposal of dead
· Damage assessment
· Management of information centres at temporary shelters
· Mobilisation and distribution of relief supplies including finances
· Manpower for community mobilisation, crowd control, rumour control, traffic management
· Specialised services (psychiatric and mental health assistance)
· Management of transit camps

The following agencies will be associated with relief and rehabilitation activities. Most of these agencies have the capacity to mobilise required resources and have assisted the administration in the past in managing relief and rehabilitation activities. These agencies include :

· Manav seva sangh
· Lions club
· Antop hill Medico Association
· Dadar Medico Association Brotherhood
· Impact India foundation
· Shradhdhanand Mahila ashram


Depending on the intensity of the disaster and the quantum of resources required, the following city level agencies will also be approached for assistance through the BMC Control Room.

· Ramkrishna Mission
· Salvation Army
· SOCLEEN
· Somaiya Trust

· Tata Relief Committee

As a part of general preparedness at community level, the NGOs in the ward will make the communities conscious about the type of hazard that the community faces. Thus local disaster management action plans for hot-spot areas in the context of specific vulnerability would be developed. In addition, Mohalla Committees have been operating at the community level, especially in times of emergencies like house collapses, fires, floods. Such committees have been identified at the ward level and exist at the following places:

· Matunga Police Station: Dadar St. (E), Matunga Stn. (E), L.B.S. Market, Matunga, 5 Garden Parsi Colony, P.B. Sule Marg Bit.

For areas with high concentration of industries particularly engaged in production, storage and transport of hazardous materials, Mutual Aid and Resource Groups will be set-up.

4.1 Mutual Aid and Resource Groups (MARGs)

The objective for setting up MARG is to

· Make the industrial zone self-sufficient
· Encourage pooling of resources to tackle industrial accidents
· Manage both on-site and off-site industrial accidents
· Provide for a degree of expertise in managing disasters
· Reduce the response time for managing disasters
· To integrate the on-site plan of industries with an off-site plan.
· Assist the Corporation in managing disasters

4.2 Areas of Community Participation

Efforts to enlist community participation is being ensured by

· identifying situational, opinion and position leaders in the community and voicing administration’s confidence in their capabilities to undertake the tasks.
· Consultations and dialogues expressly indicating the need for assistance would encourage the community and its leaders to come forward.
· Regular feedback meetings and an open book approach to demonstrate transparency.
· Involving community in decision making at local levels

The major areas of community participation are being identified in Greater Mumbai Disaster Management Plan and include the following:


4.2.1 During Evacuation

For appropriate security and law and order evacuation would be undertaken with assistance from community leaders and community based organisations (CBOs). The entire family would evacuate together as a unit. However, to avoid stampede and confusion and in cases of inadequate transport or limited time, emergency evacuation would be undertaken in the following order :
· seriously injured and sick
· children, women and handicapped
· Old
· Able-bodied

In case of evacuation, people would be advised to follow these steps:

· Secure their homes/establishments. Close and lock doors and windows.
· Turn off the main water valve and electricity
· Leave early enough to avoid being trapped.
· Follow recommended evacuation routes. Not to take shortcuts. They may be dangerous.
· Not to move into flooded areas because the authorities may have removed the manholes for efficient drainage and the indicators may get shifted due to water currents.
· Stay away from downed power lines.

4.2.2 During the Disaster

Community leaders could be given the responsibility for ensuring the following community behaviour :

· People stay calm and panic behaviour is not encouraged. Regulate helter-skelter running or crowding of people.
· Encourage people to stay at a secured place and protect themselves from injuries.
· People do not enter damaged buildings or structures
· People do not touch electric poles, utility wires/cables
· People do not use telephones except in life-threatening situations
· Preparedness of community for recurrence of the disaster, increase in severity, or consequential emergencies
· Check for injuries. Do not attempt to move seriously injured persons unless they are in immediate danger of death or further injury.
· Undertake first-aid activities
· Visually inspect utility lines and appliances for damage.
· If water pipes are damaged, shut off the water supply at the main valve.
· People stay away from damaged areas, unless their assistance has been specifically requested by police, fire or relief organizations.
· Mobilise people to put out small fires and people inside are made to evacuate.
· Help police, if requested, to maintain law and order and watch the evacuated property during the disaster


4.2.3 During Relief and Rehabilitation

Immediately after the disaster, the members of the community may look depressed and helpless, but very soon gets euphoric when they find that after all everything is not lost. Participation of community at this stage helps in early recovery and promotes mental health. It is necessary to see that member of the community are continuously engaged in some sort of helping activity to draw them out of their depression.

Relief authorities at the site would therefore:

· Encourage self-help in every activity of their day-to-day living.
· Encourage assistance for identification of dead, disposal of dead bodies, and disposal of damaged food stocks
· Encourage contribution of labour (loading, unloading, distribution, temporary constructions, food distribution etc)
· Enlist assistance for updating records of damages and losses.
