Two National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams comprising 100 personnel will be rushed to Jammu and Kashmir on Monday as part of contingency measures, in the wake of the flood alert in the state.

Divided in two teams comprising 50 personnel each, NDRF will take an early morning Indian Air Force (IAF) plane that day, from Bhatinda in Punjab to Srinagar.

“We are pre-positioning two of our teams in the Kashmir Valley tomorrow in order to combat any situation in the wake of flood alert,” NDRF Director General O P Singh told PTI.

“Jammu and Kashmir DGP had made a request to us in this regard,” he added.

He said that the teams have been equipped with communication, rescue and retrieval gadgets as per the standard operating procedures to combat flood situations.

The NDRF had played a vital role along other defence forces to undertake huge amount of relief and rescue operations last year, when Kashmir Valley was inundated with waters in the worst-ever floods in the history of the state.
