Turkey: National disaster response plan
The Turkey National Disaster Response Plan (Türkiye Afet Müdahale Planı - TAMP in Turkish) outlines the roles and responsibilities for every involving party in disaster and emergency response situations to determine the basic principles of response plan in all three phases: before, during and after the disaster and emergency situations.
TAMP is flexible, modular-structured and adaptable to all types and scales of disasters and is responsible for the planning and coordination of the public institutions and non-governmental organizations in the event of a local/national level disaster to minimize the loss of life and property by efficient resource management. TAMP gives responsibilities to the personnel of all the parties involved (ministries, the public institutions and non-governmental organizations) in the wake of a local/national level disaster to work under 28 service groups. Personnel, equipment and resource analysis will be carried out to analyze the current situation and identify the strengths and weaknesses to increase the disaster and emergency management capacity in Turkey.
