Disaster Management Committee

As a part of the disaster management committee as a student member, I was responsible for implementing the safety and evacuation plans at the ground level. After each drill, we look for any point where the project went wrong and 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:

  • The involvement of teachers in the RC or staff rooms.

  • Clarifying the message to the students.

  • Using walkie-talkies.

  • Replacing glass windows with other less harmful substitutes like fibre sheets.

To be aware of the students comprehensively, a disaster calendar, related topics for bulletin boards, and an emergency number in the plaza were advised.
