 Go back

As per the recommendations from National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA), Government of India, New Delhi, the State was requested to set up State Disaster Response Force (SDRF) teams in the State on similar lines of National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams set up by the Central Government.
GSDMA, through the Home Department, initiated the task of carving out SDRF teams out of the existing SRPF companies in the State.
Home Department has already finalized 11 companies specially earmarked for disaster management having strength of 100 members each to be designated as SDRF teams.
These companies will be trained jointly at Vadodara by NDRF teams based at Gandhinagar and Vadodara Municipal Corporation.
List of equipments to be procured for these SDRF teams was worked out by the 06 Battalion of NDRF stationed at Gandhinagar and the procurement is currently under progress through Vadodara Municipal Corporation.
