Ward Disaster Management Committee members with local elite persons were participated actively in this session. Everybody highly appreciated to this session.

First of all, List of hazard, Sequence of hazard, Risk and Resource Mapping, Calendar of hazard, Calendar of Livelihood, Community level Action Plan, Organization level Action Plan. 20 to 24 local elite persons with WDMC members were attended the session in every PVCA.
3.Water gage installation at community level to measure the water level during the rainy season.
DRR working area is surrounded by the river of Padma, Meghna and Kirtinasha. Almost every year, here occurred river erosion and flood. The community people do not know the situation of water level and there is no mechanism to know the situation of water level measuring. So community flood scale installed with a signboard. The community flood scale is divided of three stages. Down stage with green color that means normal flood which was not the loss of them, even benefit. Middle stage with yellow color that means preparedness moment when we are to be taken preparedness to reduce loss of life and asset and the last stage of upper level with red color that means dangerous period. If the water level is crossed that point, the life and asset is probable/likely loss.
