Working round the clock in three shifts, the GHMC’s Disaster Response Force (DRF) personnel have already sprayed disinfectants at all public places and major thoroughfares. Now, the target is to reach out to each and every colony and internal lanes and bylanes by April 15.

Sporting googles, gloves, masks and other personal protection equipment (PPE), as the DRF personal have started to visit colonies, impressed citizens are welcoming them with warmth and at many places, the residents are offering them food and snacks.

On Sunday, a DRF team fanned out into colonies of Baghlingampally. “They are doing a fabulous job and need to be appreciated. Their efforts instil a sense of confidence among us,” said Mohan Rao, a resident.

When the corona scare started to spread, these personnel were given a three-day crash course on use of spraying machines and respirators before being deployed on the field.

The GHMC Enforcement Vigilance and Disaster Management (EVDM) set up 19 of these teams with 675 persons and equipped them with advanced chemical resistant suits, gum boots apart from anti-fogging goggles.

Each team is assigned a location every day and all the bus shelters, footpaths and public places which witness high public gathering, have already been disinfected.

In addition to this, jetting teams with 18 machines have been deployed to cover all the areas. In order to facilitate faster coverage and spraying in narrow lanes and interior areas, eight Light Motor Vehicles of DRF have been retro-fitted with power spraying mechanism.
