GeoHazards Society (GHS) has been carrying out various initiatives to increase the preparedness of communities to disaster. One of the important activities we have been undertaking since 2009 is to mark the anniversary of the Kangra Earthquake by organizing a School Safety Preparedness Drill in schools in earthquake-prone areas. This is a preparedness drill carried out on the anniversary of Kangra earthquake (4th April) every year with all students and teachers carrying out the ‘Drop, Cover, Hold’ exercise under their school desks before evacuating to safe locations using pre-determined routes.

We request all schools across the country to conduct the drill on 4th of April.
