Selangor has established its District Disaster Operation Centre (DDOC) to enhance its readiness for potential future disasters, particularly during the monsoon season. The centre, responsible for monitoring and collecting disaster-related data, is now operational in the districts of Klang, Petaling, and Hulu Klang as of this month.

These specific districts were prioritised due to their vulnerability to flooding, with plans to implement the system in other districts scheduled for the following year.

The Selangor State Secretary expressed the hope of witnessing technological advancements and infrastructure development for a systematic and efficient approach to disaster management. The traditional manual monitoring process was deemed unsystematic and time-consuming. The DDOC aims to provide vital information related to weather forecasts and environmental conditions to enhance preparedness in the event of a disaster.

The cost associated with each DDOC centre amounts to RM240,000. The DDOC serves as a centralized monitoring and operations centre within the District and Land Offices. It is designed to collaborate with the Smart Selangor Operation Centre (SSOC) to actively collect and manage data pertaining to disasters across the entire state.

One of the key features of the DDOC is its ability to integrate data from various districts, fostering coordination among different agencies and departments. This collaboration spans from the District Disaster Management Committee to the State Disaster Management Committee levels. Additionally, the centre leverages the Selangor Government Data Exchange (SelGDX) platform to access the latest information from relevant agencies such as the Meteorological Department and Environmental Department.

Concerning preparations for the upcoming northeast monsoon, which is anticipated to bring heavy rainfall and potential floods, Haris Kasim emphasized that Selangor is fully prepared. Comprehensive preparations have been ongoing since August, involving meetings and assessments of available assets. This includes ensuring that water locks are in proper working order and that maintenance and repairs are conducted on any idle boats.

The most recent preparations took place two weeks ago when local councils were instructed to be fully prepared. As a result, Selangor asserts its complete readiness to address any situations that may arise.

Selangor has initiated the operation of the District Disaster Operation Centre in flood-prone districts to improve disaster preparedness. The centre integrates data, collaborates with other government entities, and accesses relevant information through the SelGDX platform. Despite a notable financial investment, Selangor claims to be fully prepared for the upcoming monsoon season after months of comprehensive planning and maintenance activities.

Selangor’s launch of the District Disaster Operation Centre (DDOC) aligns seamlessly with the broader strategies and priorities set by the Malaysian government. By employing advanced technology, fostering inter-agency collaboration, and prioritising data-driven disaster management, the DDOC contributes to the government’s commitment to enhancing public safety and regional preparedness. The DDOC’s tech-driven approach to monitoring and gathering critical data is in harmony with the government’s focus on leveraging technology for efficient disaster preparedness and response.

Additionally, the collaboration among various government entities mirrors the government’s emphasis on effective coordination during emergency situations. The DDOC’s role in gathering weather and environmental data supports the government’s dedication to environmental sustainability.

Overall, Selangor’s DDOC embodies the Malaysian government’s vision by promoting technology adoption, inter-agency cooperation, data-driven governance, public safety, and localized disaster management strategies to bolster regional readiness.
