KARACHI, Oct 26 (APP): Chief Secretary of Sindh, Muhammad
Siddiq Memon, in wake of possible chances of earth quake, has declared
“high alert” across the province.
In view of jolts that shook upper areas of the country this
afternoon, the provincial chief secretary in his directives issued to
concerned departments urged officials to develop an urgent “state of
preparedness” and take necessary preemptive measures.
All hospital, rural health centres and dispensaries were ordered
to remain functional round the clock while provincial departments must
also develop strong coordination with each other in case of any
serious situation.
Provincial Disaster Management Authority (PDMA – Sindh) alongwith
officials of health department, local government, commissioners and
deputy commissioners of different districts have been asked to ensure
that measures are adopted to reduce intensity of associated loss to
minimum.
This, he said is in case of God forbid any part of Sindh too may
experience the jolt.
