PM reviews state’s flood risk management plan

CAIRO – 13 September 2019: Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly was updated on the results of a field training on the state’s flood risk management plan, said the Cabinet in a statement on Friday

According to a report issued by the Information and Decision Support Center (IDSC), the field training was conducted on September 4 and 5 in Assiut’s Alexandria Liberation village. The cabinet has formed a national committee for crisis and disaster management and risk reduction, to achieve an effective and immediate response to crisis and disaster risks.

The plan was framed to face expected floods in the governorate and to test the safety of equipment to deal with emergencies, and ensure readiness, the statement added.

The training included stimulation of an emergency case due to heavy rains that led to the flooding in the village, resulting in a power outage, disruption of communications, partial collapse of the main road and some houses and schools.

The trainees worked on urgent actions that should be taken in cooperation among the Traffic Department and the Directorates of Health, Social Solidarity, Supply, Roads and Transportation, and Endowments,the statement continued.

Three days ago, the Red Sea Governorate Authority announced that it has built 16 dams, dug 12 artificial lakes, and made 11 dirt barriers and canals at a cost of LE572 million in order to avert the repercussions of floods caused by rainfall in winter.
