EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS CAMPAIGN - PART#1 / आपातकालीन तैयारी अभियान - भाग# 1

The aim of School Safety Plan is to ensure the safety of students and staff during emergencies. It is necessary to know how to identify hazards in the school, how to manage the hazards and how to mitigate the effects through planning and effective response. Mock drills are a must to test the various elements of the response plan in order to evaluate it. Drills and exercises are an extremely important part of the preparedness plan as they 1) teach students, staff and parents how to respond to the complications of an actual disaster, and 2) help you evaluate how well all parts of your emergency plan work together, and how well your staff and students have been trained. Awareness among the student community will help build a better, stronger and resilient nation.
