Myagdi, Feb 26: The Armed Police Force has been established a disaster management base at Narchang of Annapurna rural municipality-4 in Myagdi.

A unit of 25 armed policepersons trained in disaster management has been established under the leadership of a police inspector.

The base has been set up with the aim of speeding up search and rescue operations in case of a disaster along Beni-Jomsom-Korala Highway as well as in Myagdi, Mustang, Baglung and Parbat districts, said Deputy Superintendent of Police Shyam Kumar Poudel.

Earlier, armed police force teams had to be called from Pokhara and Kurintar for search and rescue in the districts. As a result, the search and rescue operation was delayed. Fadindra Gole, Police Inspector of the Armed Police Force, said that the unit has personnel trained in disaster management.

The APF base is stationed in a building constructed by the hydropower project in Narchang. The building managed by Annapurna rural municipality was used to set up a temporary hospital during the Corona Virus pandemic.

Meanwhile, the armed police force has started imparting basic skills for search and rescue at the community level in Myagdi. #Nepal
