Sullia: A special lifesaving and disaster management programme was held in Sullia under the joint auspices of Red Cross unit of Nehru Memorial College and Dakshina Kannada Red Cross Society on December 30.
Students were trained to survive in deep forests in dire situations. They were taught to follow the footprints of animals to locate water source on the occasion. Surviving on root vegetables, forest produce and finding ways out of the forest using sunrays and shadow were also included in the training programme.

A trekking expedition to Kolikkamale Hills helped students to get a firsthand experience of “survival in difficult situations” during the session held between 4.30 am and 7.30 am in the morning.

A separate disaster management session was held where students were trained in saving lives by extinguishing fire. The essence of sand bags, gunny bags and tree leaves in extinguishing fire were taught to attentive and enthusiastic students along with basics on administering first aid to victims of road accident and fire disaster. The students learnt rock and building climbing techniques using ropes to protect and save lives in case of fire mishap.

A live demonstration on extinguishing fire was displayed with help from local fire service department.
The entire exercise under the guidance of efficient trainers helped students in acquiring confidence to counter difficult situations arising in their own lives as well as to protect and save other lives in case of a disaster.
