As part of the month long School Safety programme and Community awareness programme at Circle level in East Siang district, Mock Drills on self safe evacuation and training on safety measures are held in the schools of East Siang.

Safety Audit Team of the District Disaster Management Authority visited three schools of East Siang on Thursday and imparted training on safety measures at St. Thomas School, Mount Carmel School and Siang Royal Academy. Earlier they also conducted Mock drills at Siang Model Higher Secondary School and Green Valley Residential School here on Wednesday. All the Government and Private Schools in the district will be covered, particularly Residential Schools under the School Safety Programme in the district.

The main focus of the programme is to sensitize the people, especially the women and school going children, on life saving techniques/practices on various disasters.

As directed by the DC, Pasighat, the Chairman of DDMA, Dr. Kinny Singh, the Safety Audit of various private educational institutions, hotels, commercial high-rise buildings and petrol pumps of the district were carried out in the month of June 2019 under the Chairmanship of EAC(Dev) and DDMO as Member Secretary. The managements of Schools, hotels, etc. were instructed to follow the standard safety norms, to have Disaster Management Plan/ Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) of its establishment and to modify the faulty building design having no provision for Emergency Exit Point.

Now, as a follow up action, the Safety Audit Team is revisiting those audited establishments. Most of the schools have worked upon observations and prepared SDMP, conduct mock drills on self safe evacuation, adopted fire safety measures, etc. as informed by G. Tsomu, DDMO, Pasighat.
