The primary focus of disaster management as set out in the Disaster Management Framework adopted by the Council is the prevention and mitigation of disastrous risks and hazards as they are likely to be found in our District given its geographical nature. In an effort to minimize these incidents, 33 awareness campaigns on risk reduction strategies such as snow rescuing, thunderstorm & lightning, tornadoes and so on, were conducted throughout the District. These initiatives are in line with the programmes of climate change and should be seen interchangeable. A Disaster Management Plan is about to be adopted by the Council and will assist the District together with LM’s in addressing the risks and hazards posed to us by the effects of climate change. We call upon all stakeholders to work with us as we drive these programmes so that together we reduce the impact and effect of these hazards.
