5. Conclusion

On-site and Off-site Emergency Management Plans should be based on consequence analysis and it should be ensured by industries and civil authorities respectively. The following points should be examine by State Disaster Management Authorities (SDMAs) and District Disaster Management Authorities (DDMAs):

  1. All OnSEMP and OffSEMP must have vulnerable zones of fire, explosion and toxic concentration. These vulnerable zones should be projected on map by using remote sensing techniques.
  2. Consequence analysis should be done by competent persons or institutions having proven past histories.
  3. Authentic computer software must be used if mathematical calculations are not applied.
  4. OnSEMP should use these consequence analysis in developing assembly points, escape routes, fire fighting facilities, etc. Mock drills should also be based on these analysis.
  5. OffSEMP should use these consequence analysis in developing shelter points, escape routes, Incident Command Post, relief camp, etc. Mock drills should also be based on these analysis.
  6. SDMA should use these consequence analysis in the future master plans of the cities and rural areas and appropriate directions should be ensured to Town and Country Planning.
  7. Central and State Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) committees, notified under the Environmental Impact Assessment Notification 2006, should ask the coming and proposed industries to submit such consequence analysis before granting the site clearances for the new as well proposed industries. These committees must appoint experts in their appraisal committees who can examined the consequence analysis.
