Civil Defence Infrastructure is developed

To meet the early warning communication requirement for disaster response and against an enemy attack, a reliable and flexible network, both on telephone lines and radio/wireless, have been established in most of the categorised Civil Defence Towns (see map).

Against the target of 165 Nos., the Ministry has already provisioned full compliments of VHS Sets. In addition, 285 Nos. of latest generation State-of-Art High Frequency (HF) radio sets have already been provisioned against a target of 288 Nos. The remaining 13 HF sets are likely to be supplied during the ensuing financial year (2012).

Communication facilities, on telephone lines and radio, have also been planned and established in most of the Civil Defence towns for the purpose of command and control, co-ordination and liaison. In addition, electronic solid state ARP Equipment (EARP) and Wireless Controlled ARP (W-ARP) for Simultaneous Broadcast Facilities (SBF) and Centres Control of Sirens (CCS) were developed in collaboration with ITI, Bangalore.
