STATE POLICY FOR MITIGATION & MANAGEMENT OF DISASTERS

 
Types of Disasters
Disasters are of many types. The High Powered Committee (HPC) constituted by the Central Government has identified thirty-one disasters and grouped them in five categories. On the basis of available, data disasters frequently occurring in the State are as follows :

- Drought
- Floods
- Earthquake
- Hailstorm
- Fire
- Industrial and chemical disasters
- Accidents
- Epidemic

Each disaster has a different character and therefore requires a different plan of action for prevention and mitigation. The management plan, similarly, calls for an event specific plan for preparedness, response and recovery, though there may be some commonalities.
