Disaster management: a desk job?

Mid Day reports that "[t]he BMC’s disaster management cell will get a Rs 5-crore facelift to enable it handle future calamities more competently." How much of that money will be efficiently used is open to question, but there is no denying that the cell needs a revamp, or a "facelift", as the report puts it. According to Mid Day:
Presently, the disaster management cell is housed in a small 200 square feet room with only two direct phone lines, a single computer, few wireless sets and a staff strength of just eight on one shift. It’s a desk job and employees are expected to pass on information to hospitals, fire brigade and the police.
In the light of this, it is outrageous for the administration to claim that they were prepared for disasters, just not one as big as this. They clearly weren't prepared for a disaster on any scale.

The plans being made now are summarised in the report, but when it comes to government, we all know the gap between intention and outcome, don't we?

A question to the readers: do any of you guys know of any private initiatives in Mumbai to prepare for future natural calamities?
