The Transportation Mobilization Business Preparation Meeting is held to keep track of the business progress of project managing authorities and executive units. By holding the meeting, MOTC can set actions to integrate information, notify and respond to authorities about natural occurring disasters. Moreover, by holding annual assessments, MOTC can verify mobilization efficiency and strengthen authority functions on handling natural occurring disasters.
In this year's Transportation Mobilization Preparation Meeting/ Disaster Prevention and Protection Assessment held on Jan 7th and hosted by Counselor Mr. Tai-Ming Lee, the event was divided into two parts: information evaluation and on-site inspection. Assessment contents included briefing of Transportation Mobilization Preparation and Disaster Prevention and Protection Assessment, survey and categorization of mobilized manpower and supplies, educational training drills, etc. The assessment included two major items, transportation mobilization and disaster prevention & rescue, which is divided into 56 sub items.

Our briefing presentation and self-assessment reports were complete and detailed and the assessment items were well categorized and presented digitally which were backed up by concrete statistics and evidence. We also displayed equipment to explain the prevention protocol, mobilization manpower and rescue efficiency. The assessment committee members were satisfied with our performance.
