Safety Mock Drill 27 February 2019
Dwarka International School conducted a Mock Earthquake Drill on February 27th 2019 in the school premises .The exercise took place in the gracious presence of honorable Education Advisor Mr. Rajbir Singh Gahlot, Principal Ms. Poonam Jha , Headmistress Ms. Archana Rathi.
It was an informative and fruitful drill. The first thing that Disaster Management Team educated while managing these kinds of disasters was to evacuate the building using stairs by walking and leaving the belongings there and then. They further suggested that running should be avoided to evade stampede so as to reach an open area away from the building. Students along with their teachers were given different tasks of operations to undertake during the drill. A search and rescue team comprising students and teachers played a very significant role in the drill. As instructed they looked for the injured around so that immediate first aid help could be provided. The students were advised to follow simple rules while evacuating as for example they were asked to crawl and come out of the room if smoke is very dense and if somebody catches fire then he should be made to roll with body covered with any cloth like; blanket, curtain, bed sheet etc. This mode of action was demonstrated by a Physical Education teacher for the students. The team also displayed the method of using fire extinguishers. At last the expert team provided some important guidelines to teachers about the drill. They gave the instructions about the dos and don’ts during the disaster.
Overall it was an enriching experience for the students as well as teachers. They participated in the drill enthusiastically. The Management as well as the Principal lauded the efforts of the students and staff.
