On 28th June 2018, History club of the college had arranged a visit to CIVIL DEFENCE STAFF COLLEGE, Dhobi Talao. Second year batch of B.Ed. and teachers had attended the short orientation by Mr. Dilip Kamble on the Disaster Management. He briefed everyone about the about the different types of disaster, viz, fire, flood, tsunami, earthquake and flood zones in India, along with impact of terrorism as a part of man-made disaster. He stressed on the impact of such disaster on development of the nation. He showed the Disaster Management Cycle and its four phases. He gave many actual incidents as example, wherein their team of Civil Defence travelled to the actual location and helped the victim.

After the session, Mr. Waghdhare demonstrated Schafer Method (steps to save a drowned person), Holger -Nielson Method (steps to save a person choked due to poisoned gas or smoke) and Silvester Method (steps to save a person experienced an electric or mental shock). Each student had to imitate the demo in front of the experienced personality. He also explained in depth about Cardio- Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and how effective it is as compared to the other orthodox methods. He also informed how important it is to look, listen and feel within the stipulated golden 3-5 minutes, so as to revive a victim from the danger.

Later, after the break, Mr. Dharmendra Jadhav explained about different types of knots, with the help of rope with a running end and a dead end. He told about the significance of every single knot, may it be a simple knot, ladder knot, reef knot and many others. Finally, he informed about different types of bandages using a simple triangular piece of cloth for victims, who have injured their jaw, or dislocated their shoulder or damaged their wrist or elbow or may have been hit by any pointed object in the middle of the head.

Ultimately, Mr. Mansule guided us about the different types of fire extinguisher for normal fire, fire due to gas, fire due to oil, electric fire. He explained in detail about how to study the fire brigade wears the outfit which can sustain up to 15 minutes in fire flames. He showed the cutting machine and many more.

It was an enriching and informative session throughout. The task these gentlemen perform are worth saluting, and it is quiet unfortunate that government finding is reduced for Civil Defence purposes. All the staff members gave their best to explain every minute detail related to saving the victimized individuals from all possible disasters and striving for their revival.
