Kancheepuram: Posting of National
Disaster Force at all nuclear stations in India was part of
plans to strengthen nuclear disaster preparedness after the
Fukishima meltdown, according to a top official of National
Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).

Speaking at a two-day Nuclear Emergency Preparedness
workshop here, Vice-Chairman NDMA M Sashidhar Reddy said the
force comprised specialists in chemical, radiological,
biological and nuclear technologies to tackle nuclear
emergencies.

"States have to respond to this call by National Disaster
Response Force and expedite the process to set up such a force
in their plants at the earliest. Maharashtra has already done
so and the response from Tamil Nadu is awaited," he said.

Besides top officials of NDMA, nuclear experts, state
disaster management authority and Department of Atomic Energy
officials discussed all eventualities at the seminar and also
the preparedness to counter possible threats.
