Disaster Risk Management Centre <p>The aim of the Disaster Risk Management Centre (DRMC) is to identify, prevent or reduce the occurrence of disasters and to soften the impact of those hazards that cannot be prevented. </p><p>We also facilitate the coordination, integration and efficiency of multiple emergency services and other essential services to ensure that these organisations work together, both pro-actively through risk reduction, planning and preparedness; and re-actively through response, relief, recovery and rehabilitation.</p><p>It is the DRMC’s responsibility to prepare and execute the City’s Municipal Disaster Risk Management Plan. The City’s Municipal Disaster Risk Management Plan is driven by a Disaster Co-ordinating Team (DCT) which is a multi-disciplinary team that executes contingency plans. In the event of a disaster or a large scale emergency, the DCT would assemble in the Disaster Operations Centre (DOC). This arrangement also acts as a central information point to communicate swiftly with the public during emergencies.</p> <span> <ul class="lrg-icon-content"><li class="lrg-icon lrg-link"><div class="list-links"> <a title="title" href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/City-Connect/Report/Report-an-emergency/Report-fires-flooding-or-rockfalls">Report fires, flooding or rockfalls​</a><a title="title" href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/Safety-in-the-home/Natural-disasters-and-your-home/Disaster-emergency-guidelines-for-families">Read our disaster emergency guidelines for families</a><a title="title" href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Local%20and%20communities/Community-health-and-safety/Natural-disasters-in-the-community/Disaster-emergencies-in-the-community" style="display:inline;">Read about disaster e​mergencies in the community</a>​</div></li></ul></span><span> <blockquote cite="http://wwww.cite.co.za"><p> <em>"Our vision is to efficiently manage disaster risk in all communities of the City of Cape Town by preventing disasters and softening disaster impact where prevention is impossible." </em><b>Greg Pillay </b><cite>Head: Disaster Risk Management Centre</cite></p></blockquote></span><img alt="" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/PublishingImages/Disaster-Risk-Management-Header.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><div class="contact"><h4>Disaster Risk Management Centre</h4><address><ul><li>Telephone: <br><a>080 911 4357</a>(help)</li><li>Email: <br><a href="mailto:disaster@capetown.gov.za">disaster@capetown.gov.za</a></li><li>Address: <br>Disaster Risk Management Centre <br>Goodwood</li></ul></address><h4>Disaster Risk Management Training Centre</h4><address><ul><li>Telephone: <br><a>021 444 8196</a></li><li>Email: <br><a href="mailto:Amanda.Munnik@capetown.gov.za">Amanda.Munnik@capetown.gov.za</a></li><li>Address: <br>Alphen Centre<br>Main Road<br>Constantia</li></ul></address></div><p>Find a list of <a href="http://www.capetown.gov.za/Family%20and%20home/personal-health/health-emergencies/emergency-numbers">emergency numbers​</a>.</p>
