Notes: The National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) has conducted its first-of-its-kind State-level mock exercise on forest fire in Uttarakhand on April 18, 2017. The aim of the mock exercise is to assess the efficacy of integrating the preparedness and response mechanisms of the forest department with those of the district administration. The 3-day exercise is significant as almost 70% of the State’s geographical area is under forests and incidents of forest fires are commonplace. The mock exercise has been conducted in collaboration with the State Government. The fire officials from all the districts and other departments of the state have participated in the exercise.
