Disaster Management in Mangalore

Till now there is no specific force allocated to combat disaster management in Karnataka. In most cases this responsibility is combined and under taken by the fire services and ambulance service in Mangalore. In recent years it has been pointed out that the nature of disaster management has changed. Earlier disasters were considered as isolated events. But now there is a shift from providing relief to disasters to using current technologies and equipment to avert the disaster. The world has seen at large how Tsunami could be averted after the alert system was put into place.
