The Jammu and Kashmir administration has decided to set up an Emergency Operation Center (EOC) to protect residents and help reach the affected areas quickly due to repeated tremors.
These centers will be established in the districts which are in earthquake prone areas. These centers will help to reach common people in any natural disaster, not just earthquake.
