Often natural disasters and calamities cause huge loss of life, mostly it is due to the fact that disaster management or precautions to be taken are not known to many. Our country unfortunately has faced many Natural and Industrial disasters and huge life loss and destruction has happened. The “National Disaster Response Force” often conducts public awareness programmes which would be helpful to people young & old to save themselves and also to assist others during these times of trouble. Bharuch District Disaster Management Committee Project Offricer Mr . Bhavesh Gohil and Bharuch Mamlatdar Mr N R Prajapati organized a programme on 18/6/16 at our school, for parents, students and teachers for “ Safety and Awareness”. NDRF Inspector Mr. Rajiv Kumar and his 15 valiant team members instructed and showed ways and means which included making on the spot equipments to be used to save lives during floods. They also showed how one maintain safety even during earthquakes. They showed how one should evacuate in case buildings collapse during such earthquakes. They also demonstrated the use of modern equipment s the NDRF members use to rescue people trapped in such circumstances.
A video was shown about precautions to be taken and first aid to be given in case of accidents or snake bites. The children came to know which snakes were poisonous and which non poisonous this created awareness amongst them about how the snake is useful too for life cycle. This programme eliminated many confusions and myths and also boosted consciousness and safety measures in the minds of all.
The members of NDRF also showed how to ascend and descend from multi storied building during calamaties. This was demonstrated by bringing an injured person on a stretcher from the 4th floor of the school building with the use of ropes. This was done so effortlessly that the students clapped and applauded the team members enthusiastically.
Another feat performed by them was descending from the 4th storey of the school building whilst upholding the Indian Tricolour, this really renewed the patriotic fervor in all and the all started chanting “ Bharat Mata Ki Jay.
These programmes not only create awareness amongst the children during such times but also instills in them the fervor to do much for the nation.
