  1. Good job but in my personel opinion precausion measure is better than awareness i.e. DA should vigil before construction of every huge building at unfeasible places and restrict the construction of building without prior permission from recognised ARCHITECTURE and restricted for sattled those who sattled in slidezone area

  2. Good efforts. Appreciable.

    However let no one boast that they are ‘Fully Prepared’ for disasters.
    They just Cannot. Look to the Most High God for safety.

  3. Thanks to DC sir, MP sir and NDRF personnel for arrangement of mock exercise at District HQ. But such kind of mock exercise -cum- awareness programme should not be limited to District HQ and its dwellers. It should be made more meaningful by making it accessible to the poor and illiterate people of rural areas. After all lives of town dwellers and village dwellers are equally precious. Next time, the DA should take pain to arrange such preparedness and awareness programme at any nearby village of District HQ preferably at Higher Secondary School, Bolung where higher participation of public is expected.o
