Group Based Messaging :
The SDMA has been equipped with the ability to disseminate notifications to reach large number of masses through mobile and telecommunication facilities such as text and voice messages. Group specific and location specific messages in the form of text SMSs and Voice Messages can be disseminated for notifying masses about the impending disaster. During post disaster scenario, group and location specific Text SMS and Voice Messages can be disseminated for availability of relief camps, nearby medical-aid facilities and for all post disaster relief and rehabilitation notifications. Location specific real-time warning dissemination system is operated with the technical support of telecommunication service providers.
‘Kaizala’ is a mobile chat-based application that offers a communication platform to facilitate easy delegation and monitoring of tasks to enhance productivity. APSDMA has adopted the application to disseminate warnings and forecast messages in the form of text to already formed groups that send information directly to the officers within the group. State level, District level and Mandal level Kaizala communication groups and department specific groups have been formed for communicating sector specific messages.
