The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has stated its willingness to improve on the quality of its service in areas of flooding, banditry, and emergency response time.
The Zonal Coordinator of NEMA, North West zone, Ishaya Isah Chonoko, made this vow at a retreat held by NEMA for its zonal staff.
Chonoko charged staff members to always seek to better their performance in response to disaster management.
“On this note, I called for a strong synergy and collaboration among NEMA staff, disaster management stakeholders and the communities to identify their responsibilities for proactive measures in preventing, responding and mitigating the impact of emergencies and disaster situations.
“Ladies and gentlemen, let me, therefore, implore all of you as critical stakeholders, to use this forum to brainstorm and exchange ideas for your diverse professional perspectives and come out with a holistic and affordable way by which we shall together confront all disaster situations,” he said.
The coordinator said the agency was carrying out sensitisation programmes for key players in disaster management in a bid to curb fire outbreaks, flooding and other disasters.
