Disaster management through radio broadcasting Farhana Ahmed


The recent flood relief operation by The Assam Tribune Group and the Assam Tribune Employees’ Union (ATEU) in Lakhimpur will be remembered for long as it would open new vistas for radio broadcasting handling disaster management. Among the 34 relief materials distributed by The Assam Tribune Group and ATEU on July 26 in flood ravaged Aamtola region of Lakhimpur, there was a transistor radio set, meant for every family that received the aid.

In Lakhimpur district, any radio set could access AIR broadcastings from its Dibrugarh, Guwahati, Jorhat, Itanagar and Mukokchung stations in FM, MW and SW frequencies. The concerned authorities can use the services from these radio stations to reach out to victims of natural disasters. So far the disaster management authorities have done little in terms of using radio for their use in the state. The exemplary act by the Assam Tribune Group and ATEU could pave the way of new application of radio service in managing flood and other natural calamities affecting the masses located in remote areas without electricity.
