Group Based Messaging :

The JSDMA has been equipped with the ability to disseminate notifications to reach large number of masses through mobile and telecommunication facilities such as text and voice messages. Group specific and location specific messages in the form of text SMSs and Voice Messages can be disseminated for notifying masses about the impending disaster. During post disaster scenario, group and location specific Text SMS and Voice Messages can be disseminated for availability of relief camps, nearby medical-aid facilities and for all post disaster relief and rehabilitation notifications. Location specific real-time warning dissemination system is operated with the technical support of telecommunication service providers.

During or post disaster scenario, one of the major difficulties for the response and recovery team to interfere is the lack of communication infrastructure in the affected areas. To ensure redundancy in communication and overcome the communication infrastructure collapse, JSDMA have installed satellite communication facility. JSDMA is also in the process of developing mobile app facilities to communicate information in the group.
