It was established in 2009 in Delhi, for disaster management and specialised response to natural (natural disaster) and man-made disasters (Man-made hazard). Functioning at state and central

of the NDMA capable of dealing with all types of natural and man-made disasters. At present, National Disaster Response Force consists of ten battalions, two each from the BSF (Border Security Force), CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force), twoCISF (Central Industrial Security Force) and ITBP (Indo-Tibetan Border Police).

Training of Dogs by Swiss Experts right thumb 280px CBRN Training of NDRF Personnel (Image:CBRN Training.JPG) In future, the key to efficient disaster response will depend primarily on effectiveness of training and re-training of Specialised Disaster Response Forces. With this vision, a detailedTraining Regime for Disaster Response” has been prepared by NDMA (National Disaster Management Authority) NDRF identifying the specific disaster response training courses and devising a unified, structured and uniform course module as well as syllabus for these training courses. The proposition behind a unified, structured, uniform course module and syllabus is that first the entire NDRF battalions will successfully attain these courses and subsequently the State Disaster Response Forces (SDRF) and other stakeholders will be trained on the same lines. The need of uniformly structured course module emerged from the fact that if all the NDRF battalions and other ‘first responders’ undergo the same training exercise, the coordination between different stakeholders would be expedient and well planned at the time of any major disaster where different NDRF battalions, SDRF battalions and other stakeholders will be working together in close coordination with each other. class "wikitable" - ! !!

NDRF personnel are invariably trained in courses like Flood Rescue (Swiftwater rescue), Collapsed Structure Search and Rescue (Search and rescue), Medical First Responders (Certified first responder), Rope Rescue (Rope rescue), Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Emergencies; Dignified Disposal of Dead Bodies (Health risks from dead bodies) etc. NDRF personnel are trained in prestigious institutes like NISA, DRDO, BARC (Bhabha Atomic Research Centre), CME (College of Military Engineering, Pune, India), Army (Indian Army), Navy (Indian Navy) and Air Force (Indian Air Force) as well in foreign countries like USA, Singapore, China, Finland, Korea, Switzerland etc. '''Training Abroad''' * INSARAG Asia Pacific Exercise, China, 4–7 August 2006 * OPCW Chemical Emergency Course, Finland, 21–25 August 2006 * UNDAC Induction Course, Korea, 17–29 Sept 2006 * INSARAG Asia Pacific Exercise, Mongolia, 31 July – 2 August 2007 * UNDAC Induction Course, Malaysia, 10–14 July 2007 * INSARAG Meeting, Korea, 3–6 Oct 2007 * UNDAC Induction Course, New Zealand, 14–16 Oct 2007 * INSARAG Asia Pacific Exercise, Switzerland, 17–20 Nov 2008 * Management of Dead Bodies, Geneva, Switzerland, 4–8 Feb 2008 * Singapore Civil Defence Academy, Singapore, 10–27 March 2008 * INSARAG Asia Pacific Exercise, Philippines, 15–17 April 2008 * APCSS, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA, 29 May – 27 June 2008 * Advanced Search & Rescue Course, Florida, USA, 1–5 Sep 2008 * Chemical Exercise, OPCW, Tehran, Iran, 1–5 Nov 2008 * INSARAG Asia Pacific Exercise, Nepal, 21–24 April 2009 * APCSS, Honolulu, Hawai, USA, 20 Aug – 22 Sep 2009 * Bioterrorism Table top Exercise, Montreux, Switzerland, 7–8 Sep 2009 '''Training of NDRF''' While the NDRF is being trained, re-trained and equipped as a specialist force for level three disasters, it is equally important to ensure capacity building of state police personnel who are invariably the first responders in any natural (natural hazard) or man-made disasters (man-made hazards). To ensure this, a two-pronged strategy is being suggested to the states: firstly, to train state police personnel in the basics of disaster management and secondly, to train at least one battalion equivalent out of their state armed police units as State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) on lines of the NDRF. In addition to police personnel, the SDRFs may be constituted from existing resources of the Fire Services, Home Guards and Civil Defence. NDRF Bns and their training institutions will assist the States UTs in this effort. The State UTs will also be encouraged to set up DM training facilities in their respective Police Training Colleges and include this subject in their basic and in-service courses. Till the time, 205 police personnel from 21 states of the country have been trained. right thumb 280px Search and Rescue Training (Image:SDRF Training for Arunachal Police Personnel.JPG) class "wikitable" - !

Also a network of ten outreach centres at the respective NDRF Bns locations are proposed to be set up.

In case of any disaster, the local population is the actual first responder. It may take some time for the district state administration to mobilise rescue teams, including police, fire personnel etc. If the local people is properly sensitised about the precautions and preventive actions to be taken in case of any calamity (Disaster), the loss of life and damage to property can be drastically reduced. Thus, one of the most important tasks of NDRF is to continuously engage themselves in the Community Capacity Building (Capacity building) and Public Awareness programmes in a big way which includes training of people (the first responders) and concerned government officials at different levels in the areas with high vulnerability. Along with Community Capacity Building (Capacity building) and Public Awareness exercises NDRF is also actively engaged in area familiarisation exercises. Such exercises provide first-hand knowledge about the topography, access route to various disaster prone areas, availability of local infrastructure logistics which can be used in disaster response operations.

More than 15,000 village volunteers, local people, students, State Police, and also Central and State Govt. personnel participated in the programme. NDRF also conducts regular mock exercises on various disasters like cyclone, flood, earthquake, NBC emergencies, mass causality management etc. Participation in such exercises on the one hand improve the professionalism of NDRF personnel to tackle the real emergency situations and on the other provides an opportunity to interact with various State Government officials and to develop cordial relations with them that can be of great help during response to actual disasters. Till 31 March 2010 NDRF has trained more than 6.5 lacs community volunteers throughout the country.
