Ganai in his inaugural address asked the trainees to take keen interest in the training as they are now mandated to act in case of any disasters. He stressed that unless the trainees undergo proper training they will not be able to participate in any rescue operation. It is pertinent to mention that due to the efforts of Addl. DGP Ms. D.R. Doley Burman, the Auxiliary Police has now been converted to SDRF by the Government. The aim of the SDRF team is to mitigate the sufferings of the people and act as trained Search and Rescue Teams. The SDRF personnel, will be trained in response for floods, collapsed structures, medical response and other disasters including earthquakes, radiological, biological, nuclear and chemical disasters.
