To Train the Executives of the industries and government in order to build capacities for planning, organizing and coordinating Civil Protection measures against disasters and war emergencies.


During the last several decades there has been a growing concern for the expanding risks and consequences of major industrial disasters. This is reflected in official statistics, mass media reports, and the appearance of new public institutions that address the problem. Industrial disasters are not simply safety problems that need to be resolved, they also have wider significance because they offer important opportunities to learn about the "goodness of preparedness" between society, technology, and environment and about how those prepared can be strengthened or weakened by unexpected events. Training is the kind of activity that will be invaluable to humanity during an era of deep and far-reaching societal and environmental change. However, if we are to make optimal use of such opportunities it may be necessary to modify the way we think about industrial disasters and the Industrial Disaster Management Training Program at NCDC, Nagpur envisions such an endeavour for change.

It is advantageous to think of surprises as a coherent class of events that cuts across all types of hazards, rather than as extreme events. Since surprises appear to be increasing, it is important to develop better ways of responding to them. Because surprises are unprecedented events, it is difficult to design specific anticipatory measures of the kind that have proved successful in reducing routine hazards. The extensive exercise oriented Training at NCDC builds capacities among participants to pre-empt any surprises. Industrial Managers are requested to take maximum advantage of this opportunity and nominate officers for the 10 day Training Program.
