Each Relief Camp was kept under the charge of an officer of not less than the cadre of a Dy.Tahsildar by handing over a reimbursable imprest amount of Rs.25,000/- to take care of any immediate needs of the inmates. Three or four such camps were supervised by an officer of Tahsildar cadre. The officials of all the departments were drafted to attend to the relief works.

At the same time, a Medical Officer was posted to each camp by handing over a reimbursable imprest amount of Rs.5000/- to take care of the health needs of the inmates of the camp. Subsequently, the ADM was appointed as Relief and Rehabilitation Officer (RRO) to supervise and monitor the entire relief and rehabilitation operations. The immediate task of the district administration was to provide basic minimum facilities like latrines, bathrooms, sleeping facilities & lighting, and supplying of clothing, toiletries, drinking water and cooked food to the inmates.

The PWD engineers have taken up the task of constructing sufficient number of latrines and bathrooms, separately for men and women in no time. The Kerala Water Authority (KWA) officials have arranged water supply through tanker lorries and other sources for both drinking water and other daily needs in all the relief camps. All the camps were fully lighted and a back up generator was provided in each camp considering the fact that many of the inmates were women and children. BSNL has provided temporary telephone connections in all the relief camps.
