Active steps have been taken to organise Civil Defence on lines generally similar to those in this country adapted to suit local conditions, particularly in the Rangoon area. The organisation which covers arrangements for the evacuation so far as may be necessary of urban populations, as well as the provision of shelter, is in the charge of an officer who has had experience in the Ministry of Home Security. Details of the sums allocated are not available.
