In the next half month, Dalian will enter the main flood season. On July 4th, the Municipal Party Committee held a flood control and drought relief conference. The meeting implemented the decision-making and deployment of the Party Central Committee, the State Council, the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government. Based on the prevention of flood, drought and typhoon, the meeting arranged for the deployment of flood control and drought relief work in the whole city. Tan Zuozhen, member of the Standing Committee of the Provincial Party Committee and Secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, attended the meeting and delivered a speech. Tan Chengxu, deputy secretary of the Municipal Party Committee, mayor of the city, and the chief commander of the Municipal Flood Control and Drought Relief Headquarters presided over the meeting. City leaders Hao Ming and Luo Dongsheng attended the meeting.

 

In his speech, Tan Zuojun pointed out that since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, the Party Central Committee with Comrade Xi Jinping as the core has placed disaster prevention, mitigation and relief work at an important position in the overall situation of the Party and the country and has made a series of major decision-making arrangements and instructions, which have pointed out the direction and provided guidelines for us to do a good job in flood prevention and drought relief work. All regions and relevant departments in the city should thoroughly study and implement the spirit of general secretary Xi Jinping's important instructions on doing a good job in disaster prevention, mitigation and relief work. They should work in accordance with the requirements of the Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government. They should be highly responsible to the party and the people. Based on the preventing major floods, seizing major risks, and resisting major disasters, they should ensure that all tasks related to flood prevention and drought relief fall into fine detail with strict requirements, solid style of work, and iron discipline. It is necessary to overcome the paralysis psychology, scientifically analyze and judge, fully recognize the seriousness of the flood control and drought relief situation, deploy in advance, and implement it in a timely manner. Adhering to paying equal attention to slowing down and adapting, they should prevent and deal with problems at the same time to fully ensure the safety of people's lives and property.

 

Tan Zuojun stressed that it is necessary to adhere to the problem-oriented policy, firmly grasp the key points of the work focus, make up for shortcomings, improve the weak points and ensure the safety of flood season throughout the city. Firstly, it is crucial to conduct in-depth and detailed investigation of hidden dangers, and implement measures one by one, based on the principle of checking erroneous ideas at the outset, to ensure that risks are eliminated in place before the main flood season, leaving no dead corners or hidden dangers. Secondly, it is necessary to adhere to departmental linkage, strengthen joint consultation, share information resources, scientifically monitor and forecast early warning to ensure that early warning information reaches the village level. Thirdly, it is important to adhere to precise scheduling, strictly implement scheduling schemes, standardize scheduling procedures, and take measures such as " blocking floods, shifting peaks, and cutting peaks" to bring the comprehensive benefits of water conservancy projects into full play. Forthly, focus should be put on the principle of risk avoidance, improving the group monitoring and prevention system, refining the people's risk avoidance plans in hazardous areas, and improving the ability of grassroots cadres and the masses to prevent and avoid disasters and to save themselves and each other, so as to scientifically and effectively prevent mountain torrents and geological disasters. Fifthly, it is necessary to persist in preparing for a rainy day, strengthen risk analysis and real-time monitoring in urban waterlogging prone areas, implement underground space protection and emergency drainage measures in low-lying areas, and ensure the safe and orderly operation of cities. Sixthly, priority should be put on the principle of " prevention, avoidance, rescue" and make preparations for dealing with multiple disasters such as typhoons so as to reduce the impact of disasters on production and life as much as possible. In addition, flood control and drought relief share the same priority. It is necessary to make overall preparations for drought relief, do a good job in water management and dispatching, and implement water-saving measures to ensure the safety of domestic water for urban and rural residents.

 

Tan Zuoyu emphasized that all regions and relevant departments should clearly clarify their responsibilities and work closely together to continuously improve the cohesive force on flood control and drought relief work. To fully implement the flood control " five - level guarantee" and the "double-package" responsibility of leaderships, Party Committees and governments at all levels should assume the main responsibility. Leading cadres at all levels should be in front of the front line and command. If poor leadership, slack work and dereliction of duty cause serious consequences, they should be held accountable seriously.

 

It is necessary to strengthen the unified command, establish the "one chess game" thinking of the whole city, and form a flood control and disaster relief work pattern that performs its duties, coordinates linkage, and manages together, so as to ensure effective and orderly progress in disaster prevention and mitigation. Everyone should strictly observe flood control discipline, adhere to the principle of partial compliance with the overall situation and subordinate compliance with superiors, implement a 24 - hour duty and leadership shift system, so as to ensure the prohibition and smooth implementation of government decrees. It is necessary to improve emergency response, save sufficient emergency supplies, implement emergency teams, improve response mechanisms, and strengthen actual combat drills for escape plans. It is necessary to create a good atmosphere for public opinion, carry out knowledge popularization and publicity and education on disaster prevention and mitigation, and issue authoritative information on hot issues of sudden floods and droughts and social concerns in a timely manner.

 

Tan chengxu pointed out when presiding over the meeting that doing a good job in flood control and drought relief is of vital importance to the safety of people's lives and property and to the overall development of the whole city. All regions, departments and units should firmly establish the people-centered development thought, fully understand the extreme importance and urgency of doing a good job in flood control and drought relief work at present, and effectively integrate thoughts and actions into the decision-making and deployment of the Municipal Party Committee and Municipal Government. It is necessary to strengthen organizational leadership, deepen ideological mobilization, deepen the work program, and do a good job in all aspects to ensure that all tasks and measures for flood control and drought relief are effectively implemented. It is necessary to firmly guard the safety bottom line to ensure personnel safety, reservoir safety, river safety, urban safety, flood safety and water supply safety. It is necessary to strictly implement work responsibilities, adhere to responsibility to people, strictly supervise inspections, strengthen coordination and cooperation, and strengthen the prohibition of orders to ensure that everything is safe and stable.

 

Tan Chengxu stressed that all regions, departments and units should put flood control and drought relief work in an important position, earnestly accomplish the goal of putting ideas in place, leadership in place, responsibility in place, plan in place, and measures in place, and be prepared to fight against flood control and drought relief work in a rigorous, decisive and decisive manner to firmly seize the overall victory of flood control and drought relief work.
