District - Jalgaon

Introduction

As a part of the overall preparedness of the state, the Government of Maharashtra has a State Disaster Management Action Plan to support and strengthen the efforts of the district administration. In this context, every district has evolved it's own District Disaster Management Action Plan (DDMAP). It is expected that these multi-hazard response plans would increase the effectiveness of administrative intervention.

Multi-disaster Response Plan

The DDMAP addresses the districts’ response to disaster  situations such as earthquakes, floods, cyclones, epidemics,   off-site industrial disasters and roads accidents and fires. Some of these disasters  such as floods and earthquakes affect large areas causing extensive damage to life, property and environment while others such as epidemics only  affect large populations. In any case, the management of these disasters requires extensive resources and manpower for containment by remedial action.

The present  plan is a multi-hazard response plan for the  disasters and outlines the institutional framework required for managing such situations. However, the plan assumes a disaster specific form  in terms of  the actions to be taken by the various agencies involved in the disaster. The front-end or  local level of any disaster response organisation will differ  depending upon the  type of disaster, but at the level of the back-end i.e., at the controlling level at the district  it will almost remain same, for all types of disasters.



Objectives

The objectives of the District Disaster Management Action Plan are :

To improve preparedness at the district level, through risk and vulnerability analysis , to disasters and to minimise the impact of disasters in terms of human, physical and material loss.

To ascertain the status of existing resources and facilities available with the various agencies involved in the management of disasters  in the district  and make it an exercise in capability building of district administration. This enables the district to face a disaster in a more effective way and builds confidence across different segments of society. It will be a positive factor for long term development of the district.

To utilise different aspects of disaster mitigation for development planning as a tool for location and area specific planning for development in the district.

To use scientific and technological advances in Remote Sensing, GIS etc. in preparation of this plan with a view to ensure their continuous use for development planning.

To develop a framework for proper documentation of future disasters in the district, to have an update on critical information essential to a plan, to critically analyse and appraise responses and to recommend appropriate strategies

To evolve DDMAP as an effective managerial tool within the overall policy framework of Government of Maharashtra.

Response to disasters, in the absence of a defined plan,  would be arbitrary leading to overemphasis of some actions and  absence of other actions which could be critical. The objectives of any disaster management plan should be to localise a disaster and to the maximum extent possible contain it so as to minimise the impact on life, the environment and property. A formal plan for managing disasters is therefore necessary. This would include

a.      pre-planning a proper  sequence  of  response actions,

b.      allocation of responsibilities to the participating agencies,

c.      developing codes and standard operating procedures for various departments and relief agencies involved.

d.      inventory of existing facilities and resources

e.      mechanisms for effective management of resources

f.        co-ordination of all relief activities including those of NGOs to ensure a coordinated and effective response.

g.      Co-ordination with the State response machinery for appropriate support

h.      Monitoring and evaluation of actions taken during relief and rehabilitation

"Outline of Vulnerability Assessment" prepared by CSSD/EMC has been used as the basic instrument to collate district level information to meet the database requirements for the preparation of DDMAP.


Policy Statement

The underlying policy of the DDMAP is to protect life, environment and property while ensuring mitigation  of  the disaster to the maximum extent possible, relief to those affected  and restoration of normalcy at the earliest.

Essentially, communities  draw their support from the social institutions, administrative structure, and values and aspirations they cherish. Disasters may temporarily disorganise the social units and the administrative system and disrupt their lives built around these values and aspirations. A systematic effort to put back the social life on its normal course with necessary technology support and resources will contribute significantly to the resilience of the community and nation. 

This policy forms the basis of the DDMAP strategy. It aims at  capacity building and prompt utilization of resources in a disaster situation through a partnership of the GOM, NGOs, Private Initiatives and the community. In pursuance with this policy, DDMAP  addresses itself to strengthening the pre-disaster and post-disaster responses of various actors and stakeholders including the “victims” of the disaster.

Agriculture and Cropping Pattern

Agricultural  activities  are  extensive  in  all  the  tahsils of the district.             

Due to soil drained  pattern  and  presence  of  large  number of  surface reservoirs, the land is suitable for agriculture especially for crops like cotton  , Banana , sugarcane, Jawar and ground nut, tur, Mung, udid, wheat and gram.         

Practice  of two seasons are observed where ever irrigated facilities are available that is  well water, canal water, and lift irrigation along the side of the Major rivers in the district.

The Major cropping season is Kharif  but  due  to  water  facilities, the fertility of soil both kharif and Rabbi crops are grown.

RISK ASSESSMENT AND VULNERABILITY ANALYSIS

Economic, Social, Educational and Occupational Profile of The Population

The  total  population  of the district according to 1991 census is 31.87 lakhs .

The population living in rural areas are 23.12 lakhs, while those living in urban areas are 8.74 lakhs.

The Total male and female population in the district is 16,42,873 and 15,44,761       respectively in the total population 31,87,634 .

Schedule castes and schedule tribe accounts for 3.03  lakhs  and  3.29 lakhs respectively of the total population.   

The total labour population of the district is 12,79,877.  

Disaster Specific Proneness

Floods

 The Collector office has ranked floods at  first  position  in terms  of past occurrences and indicated a medium probability of future occurrence .

The average rainfall in the district is 700 mm. with  most  of  the precipitation being in the month of July and August. 

There  are  a  total  of  16  rivers in the district: Tapi, Girna, Bhopkar, Waghur,  Suki,  Mor,  Ranavali,  Hadki,  Guli,  Aner, Purna, Bhogawati, Bori, Anjani, and Dongari. 

Out  of  these , The Tapi and Girna are Major Rivers but have rarely had any floods in the last ten years. Only the Tapi had one episode of flooding in which only 4 sq. km.  area  was  inundated  with apparently no loss to property or humans. The  people  staying  on  the  river banks have been shifted to safer places and the population  of  these  villages  is  now  out  of danger.   

There  are two major dams Girna on Girna River and Hatnur on the Tapi river. The excess water stored in these dams can  be  diverted through canals to avoid danger to downstream areas.     

There  are  two flood monitoring stations at Hatnur and Girna which have water level gauges as monitoring instruments.  

Wireless sets are provided by  the  Irrigation  department  at these centres for communication with the Irrigation Office. 

The District has had no episode of flooding in the last thirty years.  However  this  should  not  led  to  complacence.

There  is  no separate control room in the district and  if necessary, the control room  of  the police is used . 

The  Tapi is flowing through the northern part of the district passes through a predominantly tribal area where medical and other facilities are scarce and also many areas  are  quite  inaccessible.  Hence  proper management  and  assessment  of  the  floods  in  this areas will be a problem, if  disasters occurs in future. As such due  action  will  be taken by  increasing medical and communication facilities.     

There are a few PHCs in this area but the nearest major Hospitals are only  at  Taluka  Centre of Sawada , Raver, Yawal, Faijpur, and Chopda which are about 40 -50 km. away from the district civil Hospital.   

Industrial and Chemical Accidents

Although Jalgaon is not one of the more industrialised  districts  of Maharashtra, it has a significant number of industries with industrial area accounting for 140 km.

In  recent years,  Jalgaon has been fast growing in industrial development. So the incidents of accidents in industries have also been increased.   

There are 10 industrial estates including one MIDC  estate  at  Jalgaon  and  9 co-operative  industrial  estates at Jalgaon , Bhusawal , Raver, Faijpur, Chopda, Amalner, Pachora, Chalisgaon and Dharangaon.

There are a large number of  chemical  and  metallurgical  industries  in  the  MIDC  estate accounting to 28 industrial units.

Of  all  the industrial estates, the Jalgaon MIDC is the largest with 532 units and has the maximum number of hazardous industries numbering 17 units which store and process highly  volatile  and  explosive  chemicals in  significant quantities.

The  Collector  office  has submitted the fact sheets for 6 industries which have a chance of Major hazard  during  storing  or processing of chemicals.  

Total work force in all industries at 9345.  

Rukha  industries  in  MIDC,  Jalgaon  have  4  plants  manufacturing chlorinated paraffins.  They store significant quantities ( > 40MT) of chemicals like  HCL, HNO3, and chlorine.  The  factory  is  well  equipped  with fire fighting and protective equipment to deal with hazards that may  arise  while  processing  or storage of these chemicals.

Hindusthan  Ferrites  in  MIDC  Jalgaon, store large quantities of L.P.G.  For this gas the major hazard  is  of  BLEVE  (Boiling  Liquid Expanding  Vapour  Explosion)  if  fire  occurs and affects the storage area. There is one officer assisted by the Security Officer and  the Incident Controller specially designated to assess if the fire is  outside  the control of the factory staff and outside help is needed. The  factory  is reasonably well equipped with necessary first aid  kits  and  transportation  is  available   for   carrying seriously injured  to Civil Hospital.  Fire fighting equipment like  soda  acid,  foam,  CO2,  Sand  buckets  and  protective equipment like mask, safety shoes, safety helmets, hand gloves etc.  are available in factory premises.  Moreover  they  have  a  Crisis Management strategy worked out which will help in an effective emergency response.

The LPG Bottling Plant of Bharat  Petroleum  Corporation  in  MIDC Jalgaon  which undertakes refilling of cylinders employs about 82 people of which only 40 are present in factory premises at any one time.  A very large quantity of LPG (1150  tons)  is  stored  in  the factory and a similar hazard of BLEVE can occur.  The  unit  is  well  equipped with fire fighting and emergency medical facilities.  There are four fire  water  pumps  and  a large number  of fire extinguishers.  There is a control room, a pneumatic siren to alert workers and frequent mock drills to check the preparedness level.

Another  LPG  Bottling  plant  in a co-operative estate at Erandol which is in an isolated area with no habitation for more than two km radius stores about 10 MT of LPG. Equipment  like  fire hydrants, sprinklers and first aid kits are available in factory premises. Staff  has  been  trained  in  fire  fighting by the National Safety Council. The  problem  here  is  of immediate communication of outside agencies like the police and fire brigade even  though  there is telephone available. 

Ajanta Gases in a co-operative industrial estate at  Chincholi is a LPG bottling  plant.    It  stores  30  tons of LPG. Facilities like fire fighting and medical help  are  situated within the factory.  

Shree Vindhya Paper  Mills  in  village  Dhuskheda  in  Yaval taluka  manufactures  writing  and printing paper and employs about 800 workers. However hardly 16 workers are  directly  involved with  hazardous  chemicals  like HCI, HSD, LDO, LPG, ammonia, chlorine and Hexane. The unit is  well  equipped  with  fire  fighting material and protective equipment.  There is also a siren  for  alerting workers.  The more serious cases  are  sent  to  Bhusawal  which  has   a good hospital. 

As  far  as  the  facilities  for  tackling  emergencies in these industries are concerned, the factories within Jalgaon MIDC  have adequate  support  from  the  facilities  of fire brigade, police station, and good medical facilities of Jalgaon city. 

Jalgaon district has at least one  fire  brigade  in  all  tahsil headquarters. Yaval   taluka  has  two  rural  and  two  municipal hospitals with six primary health centres.   Erandol  taluka  has  municipal   and   rural  hospitals  at  Erandol  and  Dharangaon. Bhusawal is another town  having good medical facilities.

The  ammunition  factory  at  Varangaon  has  its  own   disaster management  plan  and  is  well  stocked  with the necessary fire fighting equipment  and  protective  clothing.    Moreover   it's workers  are  trained  in  crisis  management, there is effective warning system and the factory is well prepared to cope with  any kind of emergency.  The infrastructure in the factory can also be used during industrial hazards in other parts of the district.      

Fires

The district administration has ranked fires at 5 on  the  basis  of past  occurrences  and indicated a medium to low probability of future occurrence.

The  incidences  of  fire  have  to  viewed  in  the context of the incidence of industrial and chemical accidents explained above.  Fires are  a natural consequence of accidents in hazardous industries and as outlined earlier all the major factories are  well  equipped  to  deal with such fires.        

Moreover  all the tahsil headquarters have at least one fire brigade which however need upgradation both in terms of trained  manpower  and equipment.

The  Major  urban  centres  of  Jalgaon,  Bhusawal, Raver, Yawal and Pachora which have population density  exceeding  8000  are  potential hazardous locations for fire.

The fire brigades and medical facilities in these urban centres  are adequate  to  deal  with  such  emergencies except that urgradation is needed as mentioned above.  Rescue equipment like bulldozers and cranes are very few and located only at Jalgaon and a few with  the  Ordnance factory at Varangaon.  In  order to give immediate relief to the fire affected persons and to save the property from disaster  it  is  essential  to  keep  one  fire brigade  which  each  tahsil and  fire  extinguishes  to each village panchayat.  Generally in the fire wooden huts cattleshed  and threshing floors.  In Jalgaon district fire incidences  have  also  occurred  in train  carrying oil and other petroleum products. In industrial sector some of the factories are producing explosive chemicals  which  is  a fire  hazard. Such  incidence of fire have also occurred on  highways in trucks carrying explosive material.  In Jalgaon District on average 84 trains carrying explosive used  like  Petrol,  Kerosene  and  LPG  Gas through  this  district having an average of 5398 Wagons ( 180 Wagons per day)  .

Road Accidents

Road accidents have in ranked at 4 on the basis of past occurrences and there is medium to low probability of future occurrences.           

There has been a high frequency of road accidents  in  the  district but  most have been quite minor and due to negligent driving and heavy traffic through out the roads.    Accidents  prone  sites  ,  danger  and traffic  signals  are  erected  on the road and speed breakers are also        erected at important locations.  

About  140  km.    of the national Highway pass through the district across the major  towns  of  Parola,  Jalgaon,  Bhusawal  and  Edlabad  (Muktai-Nagar).

There are 1100 km. of state highways and 6000 km. of Z.P. Roads.  

Moreover there are 47 unmanned railway crossing which are potential sites for very serious accidents.      

There  are  two  big  Ghat  roads in  the  district. One passes from Chalisgaon to Aurangabad  and  the other  from Jalgaon to Aurangabad ( called Ajantha Ghat Road) through the hills. The turning on these ghat roads are very dangerous from accident point of view.  In order to avoid accidents the parapet walls of these roads need to be strengthened for safety.

For  preventing  and handling the road accidents, the  police machinery is always ready with wireless sets.  For  controlling  the  accidents  on National Highways, there is a separate highways traffic controlling units with the police.

On  the  Bhusawal Nagpur Road it is National highway, there are two Major railway gates crossing the national highway and if the gates are closed due to arrival and departure of train the said way  is  blocked, thereby  the vehicles are stranded and as soon as the gate is opened, the drivers try to over take their vehicle  and  as  such  there  is  a possibility of accident.  For this purpose the over bridges need to be built up as early as possible for smooth road traffic.               

As  outlined  earlier,   there are few bulldozers and cranes with the government department and those are mostly at Jalgaon. 

Bhusawal is a major junction of the Indian railways. There  is  a mobile  hospital at Bhusawal of the railways which however is hampered by  a  lack  of  free  movement  due  to  the  heavy  traffic  on  the railway lines  and  hence  cannot  reach  the site of accident in time.

These bottlenecks have to be removed to facilitate the smooth  working of this  novel  scheme.  

Police stations are also large in number and the district seems to be adequate capable of tackling road  accidents.

Bhusawal  being  a  big  railway  division  and  in  order  to give immediate relief to a victim,  one mobile hospital needs to be kept at Manmad junction station as at present trains ploy to 4 directions that is Manmad, Mumbai, Aurangabad, and Jalgaon.   

Epidemics

Jalgaon  is  a  predominantly  rural  district and has more than 36 percent illiterate population.

There  have  been  a large number of epidemics in the last ten years mostly due to poor  water  quality  and  improper  monitoring  of  the water. But  there  has  been  no  major  episode  which can be epidemic disaster.

So epidemics have been ranked at number three in  terms  of past   occurrence   and  there  is  a  medium  possibility  of  future occurrence. Most of the northern belt of the district is  a  predominantly  tribal area  where  effective  monitoring  of  the  water  quality or even of

Outbreaks of epidemics is not a possibility due to poor  accessibility of the villages.

There are also few PHCs in these areas with larger hospitals  only  at the taluka  headquarters.   There is only one water quality monitoring centre at Jalgaon.     

Effective steps are being taken by the health department  to  ensure monitoring  of  water quality especially during the summer monsoons and post monsoon  periods.

Community  education  programs  are  also  being conducted to reduce incidences of water borne diseases like diarrhoea, gastro  enteritis, etc.

For epidemics disaster the resources available in the district are:-   

       (A) Trained manpower 2488    

      (B) Number of Vehicles 47    

      (C) Number of beds -350      

      (D) Number of Ambulances 16   

      (E) X-Ray machines 20 etc.            

If needed the services  of  departmental  or  NGOs  personal  will  be deployed .

There  are  no epidemic prone villages in this district as informed by the DHO Z.P.  Jalgaon.

Earthquakes

Earthquakes  have been ranked last in terms of past occurrences and a low probability  of  future  occurrence  has  been  indicated  by  the district collectorate.    Since  there  have  been no past occurrence, there is no seismograph installed anywhere in  the  district which needs to be installed immediately.

However the possibility of  an  earthquake  affecting  the  district cannot be ruled out in view of the recent earthquake at Jabalpur.       

The  Narmada  valley is a potential site for seismicity and a major earthquake there can certainly cause some damage in  Jalgaon  district although the possibility is quite remote.
