To tackle emergency situations in an efficient manner, A State Emergency Operations Center (SEOC) has been established by APSDMA in its headquarters building. The SEOC is equipped to monitor short-range, medium range and long range weather related natural hazards in multiple locations such as Thunderstorm, Floods, Cyclones, Earthquake etc.., The information received from multiple agencies is analyzed and informed to concerned authorities for taking emergency risk mitigation operations.
The real-time data from analytical system, results and advisories from multiple sources are communicated to field level functionaries and stakeholders through the communication interface of APSDMA.
The SEOC is equipped with dedicated BSNL connectivity and APFibernet Connectivity. The V-SAT communication system established in the centre works as a second line of contact in case of failure of any of the above mentioned connectivity.
Under Component of the National Cyclone Risk Mitigation Project, strengthening of Last Mile Connectivity under Early Warning Dissemination System is in process and aims to extend information reach to the lowest levels of the community.
Additional methods of communication through government media platforms such as Kaizala application and mass messaging services provided by BSNL is established in the SEOC.
The SEOC is envisaged to function round-the-clock with well trained professionals including specialists from interdepartmental teams with dedicated officers from Police, Fire and Revenue Departments.
The dedicated team captures information, processes it and submits it before the sub-level decision making team who then alerts the concerned departments or offices accordingly.
