Remaining alert at all times and not letting down one’s guard should be the mantra as civil defence personnel, said Advisor for Home Guards & Civil Defence (HG&CD) Noke Konyak in Dimapur today. Konyak was speaking at the closing programme of the Professional & Sports Meet-cum-Raising Day of the Nagaland HG & CD hosted at the Central Training Institute (CTI), Toluvi.
It was the culmination of a week-long event which also coincided with the Raising Day of the state HG &CD and also the inauguration of a much need officers mess at the training centre.
“The role of civil defence is significant. It cannot be undermined,” said Konyak while expressing confidence that it would grow from strength to strength. Recalling the natural calamities that struck Nagaland this year, he called for greater coordination between the HG & CD, including the state Disaster Management Authority for effective response to any emergency.
Konyak also inaugurated an Officers’ Mess for the training centre. It was built at a cost of Rs. 1.6cr under the State Plan 2017-18. According to the Police Engineering Project, which designed and constructed the building, construction started in October 2017 and took one year to complete.
It is the first officers’ mess for the HG & CD in its 30 years of existence. According to a CTI official, its opening would ease the problem of accommodation for visiting officials and guests to the centre. “We have been running this institute without an Officers’ Mess. Before, we had to turn to the state police for accommodating whenever guests visit.”
