PR – The National Disaster Management Agency (NaDMA) will conduct District elections in all seventeen districts throughout the tri -island state in the months of March and April 2023.
The objective is to strengthen the existing district committees and provide an opportunity for new and existing volunteers to become involved in disaster risk reduction at the district level.
The Agency is therefore encouraging volunteers interested in serving people at the community level and volunteers who received training in Disaster Management or related fields, to use this opportunity to serve through the district teams.
Offices to be filled include; District Coordinator, Deputy District Coordinator, Chairpersons and Deputy Chairpersons for Health and Welfare, Supplies Management, Shelter Management, Damage and Needs Assessment, Telecommunications, Emergency Works and Transport, Public Education and Information, and Safety and Security.
A strong, robust and responsive district structure is a critical element in the Disaster Management process, as the district committees form an important link to the national structure.
The dates, venues and times of the upcoming elections will be shared in a subsequent media release.
