Additional backup team for ESD Samdrupjongkhar and Phuentsholing


Ugyen Dorji General
  1.  ESD Samdrup Jongkhar

ESD Samdrupjongkhar has been responding to the emergency needs of the electricity during ongoing lock down with the formation of two teams (Core team & the backup team). These two teams were isolated from each other and were stationed in different locations (Core team in RSD area & backup in the ESD office) to avoid direct contact amongst the team.

With the detection of COVID-19 positive case in BPC colony in Samdrup Jongkhar, BPC premises (Office & colony) is cordoned off and declared as Red Zone by COVID TF. One of the team members from core team (stationed in RSD area) is identified as the  primary contact of the positive case detected from BPC colony. In this scenario, both core team and back up are not available leading to shortage of critical manpower in the area for delivering emergency services.

To address the gap, additional layer of backup team is formed with the employees from nearby offices as follows:
