On the 22nd, the State New Office held a conference on the reform and operation of the Emergency Management Department since its establishment. Some journalists asked, in 2018, the loss of natural disasters in our country declined greatly last year. What is the reason? Was there less natural disasters last year, or was the measures taken appropriately, and what are the differences with the past in the disposal of natural disasters?

Zheng Guoguang said that in 2018, the Ministry of Emergency Management was set up to coordinate the prevention and control of various natural disasters, organize and coordinate the orderly prevention, mitigation and relief of various departments and localities, and the incidence of natural disasters in 2018 was less than normal, so the loss of natural disasters in the whole country declined greatly.

Zheng Guoguang said that the climate of the whole country was normal in 2018. Although there were many typhoons, only two of the 10 landing typhoons in China exceeded the magnitude of typhoons, namely Winbia and Mangosteen, while the other eight typhoons did not reach the magnitude of typhoons of 12. There are no large basin floods in the whole country, and the number of geological disasters is less than that of perennial floods. Although the Yarlung Zangbo River in Tibet and the Jinsha River at the border of Sichuan and Tibet have suffered geological disasters, the barrier lake has been blocked. However, the overall situation, the incidence of natural disasters is less than normal year-round, is the help of heaven.

Zheng Guoguang pointed out that human effort is that the Emergency Management Department assumes the responsibility of coordinating, coordinating and organizing disaster prevention, mitigation and relief throughout the country after its establishment. Immediately organized and formulated emergency plans and work plans for various types of disasters, all personnel entered an emergency state, the members of the Party team of the Ministry took turns on duty 24 hours, each major natural disaster was the first time to start emergency response, the first time to send emergency rescue teams, each emergency response as a combat drill, and gradually refine and improve emergency response programs and measures.

Second, we will soon establish a mechanism for interdepartmental linkages, give full play to the role of the national headquarters for major natural disasters, and strengthen inter-departmental communication and coordination.

Third, to explore the establishment and improvement of the integrated operational mechanism of disaster prevention, rescue and relief. According to disaster prediction, rescue forces should be pre-positioned in key areas, key locations and key projects in advance. Once something happens, emergency rescue should be conducted as soon as possible to minimize disaster losses. Zheng Guoguang stressed that the Emergency Management Department launched 47 emergency responses in 2018, of which 14 were for disaster relief and more than 60 working groups were dispatched. In conjunction with the Ministry of Finance, it allocated 11.58 billion yuan of central financial subsidy funds, 328,000 tents, 4.09 million beds, clothes and quilts and other central disaster relief materials. Zheng Guoguang said that this mechanism is faster than before in response, rescue and disaster relief, including the allocation of relief materials and the allocation of central financial subsidy funds much faster than in the past, which can deal with various disasters efficiently and ensure the safety of peoples lives and property.
