AIET Holds Three-day Training on Disaster Management
Moodbidri: A three-day training on disaster management is underway at the Alva’s Institute of Engineering and Technology (AIET) organised by the National Disaster Management Force (NDRF) here.
Speaking after inaugurating the training programme meant for NCC cadets, Mulky-Moodbidri MLA Umanath Kotian urged the students to serve the nation by joining the Indian army. “NCC will instil discipline and straightforwardness,” he said.
In his presidential address, Management Trustee of Alva’s Education Foundation Vivek Alva said that people have become insensitive, they are busy taking photographs instead of rushing for help during accidents. Training programme by NDRF may come in handy during such accidents, and they can respond in the right way saving human lives, he said.
