Disasters are situations or events which overwhelm local capacity, necessitating a request to national or international level for assistance. "Disaster management" can be defined as the range of activities designed to maintain control over disaster and emergency situations and to provide a framework for helping at-risk persons to avoid or recover from the impact of the disaster. Disaster management deals with situations that occur prior to, during, and after the disaster. It is a need of the hour that all the stakeholders in this disaster management system right from the central authorities to the students should be aware of the damage and the looses caused by disasters and a sense of preparedness, rescue, recovery and mitigation should be developed in them. This activity was the first step to evoke such psychological preparedness among students.
The activity was categorized basically in four phases:
1. PHASE I : Introduction to disasters
2. PHASE II : Classification of disasters
3. PHASE III : Model making
4. PHASE IV : Power point presentations (Explaining various disasters and its management)
