Speaking at the ceremony, the DG said the role of civil defense and home guards has assumed greater significance in the present scenario.
Congratulating the commandants, deputy controllers and volunteers of CD & HG of all the districts for exhibiting their best to meet the call of duty, the director general said: “If not for your alertness, the provision of security and required demonstration at the district and village level were void.”

O. Alem also pointed out that with the foresight to cope with any types of crisis the organisation should remain total alert.
Laying emphasis on the motto of the force “Service before self”, the DG urged his men to rise to the occasion and be ever prepared to the call of duty anywhere in the state.
