Disaster Management Committee

As a part of the disaster management committee as a student member, I had the responsibility to implement the safety and evacuation plans at the ground level. After each drill, we look for any point where the plan went wrong and what are the areas where betterment is required. Along with this, proper documentation and analysis was a part of my responsibility. Suggestions for improvement in the earthquake evacuation plan included involvement of teachers in the RC or staff rooms, clarifying the message to the students, use of walkie-talkies and replacement of glass windows with other less harmful substitutes like fibre sheets. To aware the students in a comprehensive way, a disaster calendar, related topics for bulletin boards and putting up of emergency number in the plaza were advised.
