NDRF’s School Safety Programme

7th November, 2019

A safe and secure environment is a pre requisite for effective teaching and learning. Thus, it is necessary to ensure the safety of children, teachers and staff members in the school during disasters.
NDRF organises school safety programmes at various schools to sensitize the children and staff about disasters and to minimize casualties and injuries during disasters. A team from NDRF visited our Vidyalaya on 7th November, 2019 and conducted school safety programme.
During the programme, students were made aware through lectures and demonstrations about the need of school safety and earthquake safety measures to be taken before, during and after, followed by demonstration and practice about medical first aid like CPR, bleeding control, choking, carrying methods, improvised stretcher and evacuation drill. After evacuation drill, an impressive demonstration on rescue was carried out by NDRF responders. As a part of demonstration, hypothetical scenarios of earthquake were created and the team carried out search of missing and rescue of trapped victims. This exercise was witnessed by the students, teachers and staff members of our Vidyalaya in the assembly hall.
NDRF is committed to serve humanity and abide by its motto “Aapka Seva Sadaiv”. The force is working simultaneously towards disaster resilience of the country by imparting awareness training as well as capacity building programme to the people for disaster risk reduction.
