2 The future is full of uncertainties. So it will be students’ responsibility to do their best to reduce the damaging effects of a natural disaster. Gaining strength from their bookish and practical knowledge, students play a major role in not only making well-informed plans to face the after-effects but also in helping victims of a disaster through their timely help.
