National Civil Defence College, Nagpur Overview

National Civil Defence College

National Civil Defence College (NCDC) was established in the year 1957 and since then it has trained almost 45,000 students and transformed their lives. National Civil Defence College basically provides training to the students and prepares them to tackle terrorist threats. This institute was set up with the misiion “to provide a premier hands-on Training Center with realistic training to induce protection and safety of responders, the public and the environment in order to nurture a culture of responsive and preventive management of disasters”. NCDC has been training candidates from Central Police Forces on a regular basis. The conflicts of 1962 and 1965 compelled the Government of India to reorient it's emergency training activities from natural disasters to those relating to protection of life and property, reducing damage and raising public morale during any war emergency. Hence, CERTI was renamed as National Civil Defence College on 1st April 1968. But the devastating Andhra Pradesh cyclone in 1978 once again vested the responsibility of training Disaster Response & Relief Officers upon the NCDC. Skill enhancing Training of Trainers in the field of search and rescue, first-aid, communications, welfare services, etc., are being organized till date. This college is catalogued in the UNDHA centers of Disaster Relief training. It has also been identified as a premier training establishment in Chemical Disasters by the Ministry of Environment & Forests. The college has been recognized as a nodal training institute for Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Emergencies training by the Ministry of Home Affairs, in year 2002. The Institute has been regularly training Trainers from Central Police Forces such as ITBP, CRPF, BSF, CISF, etc in order to prepare their personnel for the organisation of National Disaster Reponse Force. Training for developing skills to deal with terrorist threats that may comprise use of Weapons of Mass Destruction is also being conducted.
