Training was imparted systematically to volunteers in three batches of 100, 85 and 115 members in the coastal districts. Training was provided based on modern technology with live demonstration and on disaster management by experts.

Volunteers under the ‘Aapda Mitra’ are entitled to get kits worth Rs 10,000 comprising a raincoat, torch, first-aid box, lifejacket and a rope to help them handle emergencies and take part in rescue operations in dangerous locations.

However, the necessary kits or gear have been made available to fire fighting force and officials of SDRF and NDRF rescue teams.

Vasanth Kumar H M, Udupi district fire fighting official said kits have been distributed to all the districts. Since the kits have to be despatched from Bangalore its distribution has been delayed. He said the kits will be distributed as soon as they receive the stock.
