The Provinces’ People’s Committees and relevant ministries and agencies concentrate on searching for missing people, treating the injured and supporting families suffered from floods as well as strengthening  communications and warnings for local people living in dangerous areas and actively evacuating and relocating people to safer places. 

The national committee for incident, disaster response, and search and rescue, the Ministries of Defense and Public Security direct search and rescue work. 

The Ministries of Agriculture and Rural Development and Industry and Trade inspect the operation of dykes and dams. 

The Ministry of Transport guides functional agencies to inspect and promptly address landslide incidents, ensure smooth traffic on national highways and assist localities in overcoming the incidents in traffic axes.
