Bengaluru: A new disaster management plan for the upcoming Aero India show has been unveiled on Thursday, Jan 21. Authorities claim that it is a first-of-its-kind initiative to prevent mishaps during the event.

Revenue Minister, R Ashoka said, ” In order to avoid mishaps during the event, this time several precautionary measures have been taken in the wake of a massive fire disaster at the Aero India show last year. For the first time, the Geographical Information System (GIS) web site has been developed by the Karnataka State Remote Sensing Application Center for Aerial View-2021″

“The 2021 Air Show will be held from February 3 to 5. A total of 541 exhibitors from 14 countries will participate and  there will be 463 Indian and 78 foreign exhibitors. We have identified at least nine possible disaster scenarios during Aero India 2021, Covid-19, fire, collapse of structure, stampede, air crash, radiological and nuclear emergency, terror/drone/cyber attack, extreme weather, drinking water and food poisoning,” he added

Manoj Rajan, Karnataka State Disaster Management Authority commissioner said that a 5-km radius of the Aero India venue had been divided into 100-metre micro grids and each grid has a unique number. If any mishaps occur, authorities can identify the place and take care of it

It is said that a separate mobile app has been developed to help report disaster and emergency incidents and identify the resources needed. Visitors to the program will be able to identify various amenities available at the exhibition venue.
