The U.S. Embassy, in partnership with the Government of Nepal, broke ground on a $1.2 million Regional Crisis Management Center (RCMC) and warehouse in observance of Nepal Earthquake Safety Day.  The RCMC is funded by the U.S. Government, and is scheduled to be completed by March 2017 at the Nepal Army Chaunni Barracks in Kathmandu. 

In the event of a disaster, civilian and military personnel will staff the RCMC to organize relief, search and rescue, and post-disaster activities (such as debris removal).  The RCMC and warehouse will enable civil-military partners to better coordinate response and communication, as well as provide assistance and materials to affected local population during a disaster.  The warehouse portion of the RCMC will store emergency supplies and equipment for first responders.

According to a press release issued by Public Affairs Section Embassy of The United States, the United States remains committed to supporting the Government of Nepal’s efforts in disaster preparedness.
