The Assam Home Guards and the Assam Civil Defence Organizations are rendering yeoman services to the people of the State since long. In all kinds of natural and manmade disasters, volunteers of the Civil Defence Organization, under the respective wardens, render their selfless services as the first responders. Similarly, the volunteers of the Assam Home Guards are performing law and order and security duties as a sister agency to the State Police since the time of Independence. As on date, the Home Guards volunteers constitute the bulk of traffic staff of Guwahati City. They also act as static security contingents in many Government and public sector undertakings, besides playing an important role in the ongoing counter emergency operations. We are constantly striving for improving our service delivery in close association with other stakeholders and the civic society.
I call upon all the citizens to come forward and join as Civil Defence and Home Guards volunteers and contribute their might to create a safe, secure and prosperous Assam.
