Arrange refreshers training for Upazila and Union level Disaster Committees and form Ward level Disaster Committees to link these committees with Upazila and Unions.

IEC materials are developed and pasted in disaster prone areas. Community Risk Appraisal/Assessment (CRA) is done to find out disaster risks in communities and address accordingly. Essential disaster equipments are procured and maintained properly to be used during disasters.
