The ERC is collaborating with all state departments concerned, including the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority and Civil Defence and Police departments to provide the victims with all amenities of life pending their safe return home.

ERC teams have as well provided all needed psychological and moral support to the affected families in keeping with their humanitarian roles and responsibilities.

An emergency room has been established by the ERC General Secretariat and branches nationwide three days ago following the unstable climatic conditions warnings sent by the National Centre of Meteorology and Seismology, as a result of which voluntary and operating teams have been mobilised in anticipation for any emergencies.
