Disaster management plans should be in line with language and other specific requirements of ethnic minorities and vulnerable groups


Special disaster management plans are in place targeting ethnic minorities and vulnerable groups mainly. These are communicated bearing in mind language and other requirements for ethnic and vulnerable categories. Education and awareness campaigns targeting immigrant communities in open centres and other areas are carried out in the appropriate languages. Recovery plans cater for different culinary requirements of ethnic groups in events involving the distribution of food. Emergency and evacuation plans have been prepared for vulnerable groups in particular older and disabled individuals.
