Second ‘Earthquake-Mock Drill’ of the session 2017-18 was organized. All the instructions were clearly pasted over the class-cupboards. All of the concerned persons were fully briefed regarding their role at the time of the earthquake drill. The siren went off exactly at 9:15 am and the students instantly reacted to the siren. Within 30 seconds, each and every student had protected themselves including the concerned class teachers under the benches and corners of the rooms carefully as per the instructions given. During the entire drill process, children behaved in an orderly manner and followed the instructions of their class teachers very carefully.

4th July 2017

During zero period, the volunteers of the club had shared the following safety tips during earthquake with other students of their concerned classes -

What to Do Before an Earthquake

  • Make sure you have a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, a battery-powered radio, a flashlight, and extra batteries at home.

  • Learn first aid.

  • Learn how to turn off the gas, water, and electricity.

  • Make up a plan of where to meet your family after an earthquake.

  • Don't leave heavy objects on shelves (they'll fall during a quake).

  • Anchor heavy furniture, cupboards, and appliances to the walls or floor.

  • Learn the earthquake plan at your school or workplace.

What to Do During an Earthquake

  • Stay calm! If you're indoors, stay inside. If you're outside, stay outside.

  • If you're indoors, stand against a wall near the center of the building, stand in a doorway, or crawl under heavy furniture (a desk or table). Stay away from windows and outside doors.

  • If you're outdoors, stay in the open away from power lines or anything that might fall. Stay away from buildings (stuff might fall off the building or the building could fall on you).

  • Don't use matches, candles, or any flame. Broken gas lines and fire don't mix.

  • If you're in a car, stop the car and stay inside the car until the earthquake stops.

  • Don't use elevators (they'll probably get stuck anyway).

What to Do After an Earthquake

  • Check yourself and others for injuries. Provide first aid for anyone who needs it.

  • Check water, gas, and electric lines for damage. If any are damaged, shut off the valves. Check for the smell of gas. If you smell it, open all the windows and doors, leave immediately, and report it to the authorities (use someone else's phone).

  • Turn on the radio. Don't use the phone unless it's an emergency.

  • Stay out of damaged buildings.

  • Be careful around broken glass and debris. Wear boots or sturdy shoes to keep from cutting your feet.

  • Be careful of chimneys (they may fall on you).

  • Stay away from beaches. Tsunamis and seiches sometimes hit after the ground has stopped shaking.

  • Stay away from damaged areas.

  • If you're at school or work, follow the emergency plan or the instructions of the person in charge.

  • Expect aftershocks.


2nd May 2017

An ‘Earthquake-mock drill’ was organized on “How to Protect Yourself and Ensure Safety in Case of an Earthquake”.

Children were briefed on how to ensure safety and protect themselves during an earthquake if inside the classroom or school building. Following safety tips were shared with them:

  • If you are inside, stay inside. DO NOT run outside or to other rooms during the earthquake. In most situations, you will reduce your chance of injury from falling objects and even collapse of building.

  • DROP down onto your hands and knees before the earthquake knocks you down. This position protects you from falling but allows you to move if necessary.

  • COVER your head and neck (and your entire body if possible) under the shelter of a sturdy table or desk. If there is no shelter nearby, get down near an interior wall or next to low-lying furniture that won't fall on you, and cover your head and neck with your arms and hands.

  • HOLD ON to your shelter (or to your head and neck) until the shaking stops. Be prepared to move with your shelter if the shaking shifts it around.

  • Use the triangle of life method as an alternative to drop, cover, and hold on. If you can't find a desk or a table to duck under, you have options. Although this method is disputed by many of the world's leading earthquake safety officials, it could save your life in the event that a building you are in collapses-

Some pictures of the mock drill that took place within classrooms are shared below:


A Glimpse of Club’s Activities Throughout the Session of 2017-18 11th April 2017

A ‘Fire-Mock Drill’ was organized by the Disaster Management Committee of Delhi Public School, Mathura Road. Each club member ensured that all the classes had full information about the exit plans and everybody evacuates the building according to the exit plan prepared beforehand.

All the exit points in the school were clearly marked, instructions were pasted on each floor, and Dos and Don’ts List to be taken care off during the time of emergency such as fire or earthquake etc. was given to all the respective class teachers.

All the teachers were told to brief the students about the same in their respective class.

At 9:50 the fire alarm was heard and within 4 minutes, the whole school-building was evacuated carefully according to the exit plan. Each and every student reached the school playground (an open area) along with the respective teachers and other staff members.
