NATIONAL CONTINGENCY PLAN
In collaboration with
Stakeholders OF Disaster Management
March 24 – 25, 2010
During Emergencies, infrastructures like Hospitals, Roads/Bridges, Airports, Dams/ Water Supply and Solid Waste Management are critical to timely, efficient response and aiding return to normalcy. However in worse case scenarios like the Haiti Earth quake even these infrastructures were destroyed.
To resuscitate such infrastructures should an incident happen, the National Emergency Management Agency in line with its mandate of providing coordination and integration of activities necessary to build, sustain and improve the nation’s capability for disaster prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response and recovery, set out to develop a contingency plan for infrastructural resuscitation. For the plan to be implementable with needed commitment and ownership of relevant players, it has to be participatory, all inclusive and transparent.
The Infrastructural Resuscitation Contingency Plan is structured into 7 Thematic Areas: Medical /Health Infrastructures, Communication, Airports Infrastructure, Roads and Bridges Infrastructure, Electricity Infrastructure, Water Infrastructure and solid /Liquid Management.
Each theme consist of the Strategic Objectives, List of relevant Stakeholders, Lines of Authority, Alerting System, Priorities, Resource need and Capacities and a detailed tasking of each stakeholders.
