The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has declared that flood disaster effect has reduced drastically following the proactive measures put in place over the few years.
The NEMA’s Head of operation, Gombe Operation office, Mr. Jeddiel Apollos stated this yesterday at the Development Exchange Centre in Bauchi, saying NEMA has organised the workshop on: “Prevention,
mitigation and preparedness ahead of the raining season”.
According to him, the aim of the workshop was to train and create awareness on the expected disaster before it happens to ensure effective control.
Apollos said the effect of flood disaster in the recent past has reduced significantly in frequency and intensity compared with the experiences in the last four years.
He explained that communities are becoming more resilient as a result of the paradigm shift from disaster response to disaster prevention, mitigation and preparedness.
