The main objective of this project is to Strengthen emergency rescue services in GB to cater to natural and man-induced disasters for saving lives and socioeconomic conditions of the targeted area.
Strengthen emergency response services (Rescue 1122) in ten target districts of Gilgti-Baltistan
The vulnerabilities of disaster prone population are reduced and their socio-economic conditions are better protected.
Gilgit-Baltistan (GB) being the far-flung and geographically hardest areas of Pakistan is susceptible to natural disasters like floods, earthquakes and landslides/ avalanches. Destruction of property, dislocation of a large number of people and road traffic accidents are recurring phenomenon in this region, especially on Silk Road which results in the loss of many precious lives every year. The only specialized and established department in dealing with such king of any unforeseen calamities across GB is Emergency Service (Rescue 1122) managed by Home Department. As a technically equipped department, the Rescue 1122 is responsible to outreach communities across all districts which is providing timely and critical emergency services as a basic right to the communities. However the existing capacity of Rescue 1122 in terms of contemporary equipment, machinery and technology for search and rescue is insufficient in contrast of emerging tendencies and types of hazards in GB.
This project will contribute to establish an effective system for management of accidents, emergencies and timely response to the victims during major / minor incidents/ disasters through institutional preparedness. Appropriate, judicious and effective utilization of the equipment and technology acquired from this project will reduce disabilities caused as a result of any physical injury or death due to any unforeseen incidents/ calamities. This project will address vital emergency services needs to the Rescue 122 by strengthening existing equipment and technical capacities aiming to meet existing and future challenges of GB.
