DHA Establishes Rain Emergency Cells

DHA in collaboration with CBC is fully geared up and alert to meet any possible contingency arising out of monsoon rains whose intensity is likely to increase in the coming days. The Housing Authority has established Rain Emergency Cells at DHA Head Office in Defence Phase-I and at Development Directorate Phase-VIII. A Rain Emergency Setup has also been established at DHA Medical Centre in Phase-VI which will provide medical services in rain emergency. Rain Emergency Cells have started working round the clock to facilitate the residents in getting their complaints/problems promptly redressed during the impending rain emergency.

Cantonment Board Clifton (CBC) will be undertaking dewatering and relief operations of rain affected areas of DHA Phase-I to Phase-VII while DHA will undertake the responsibility of the same for Phase-VII Extn and Phase-VIII. A dedicated fully equipped Rain Emergency Centre is accordingly working under DHA Phase-VIII Development Directorate to cater for the rain emergencies in the area.

DHA, in case of need, will also fully support and augment CBC dewatering and rain emergency relief operations in its area of responsibility for which requisite dewatering resources including suction pumps and cesspool vehicles etc have been earmarked and kept as reserved. For management operations, DHA has earmarked DA Public School Phase-VIII where relief camp will be established in case of dire rain emergency while enhanced security/traffic management arrangements and provision of medical cover has also been planned to cater for any eventuality.
