|Role of the engineer in disaster management.
Engineers reflect the intellect of a country, an engineer is exposed to various disciplines of science like electricity, magnetism, mechanics, computing, etc. He is a production unit by himself, when he attempts to create a new product while doing so he must keep in mind various disastrous that can occur in case of any misconception.
Disasters can be human, material, economic or environmental. Once occurred will leave a large impact on the lives of people.
1. Incident of leakage in LG polymers at Vishakapatnam,
There was a leakage of styrene gas at 3 o clock in the morning, which spread the whole city and has taken many lives. The engineers would have been well informed of the leakage issues and apt troubleshooting processes.
2. Bhopal gas tragedy,
This issue is well known all over the country, leak of iso-cyanate led to a disastrous situation where people have to leave their homes and the area was not fit for living for a prolonged period of time. It has affected soil, air, water in that area.
There are various examples as such, if an engineer is well informed and cautioned about the disasters and educated on disaster management it can help in lessening the impact of the disaster. Few disaster management techniques can be,
1. Regular inspection of the working condition of equipment, proper shutdown.
2. Knowing the climate changes, regularly following the updates of the weather forecast.
3. Performing rigorous tests at lab scale for various combinations possible before implementing at large scale.
4. Implementing stances like zero waste, on site wastewater treatment, treatment of acid sludge's etc.
5. Regular checks on assets and liabilities and regular formulation of income and balance sheets, can hamper the risks of economic disasters.

|Standing on the existing protocol, to me the role of engineers in disaster management can never be over emphasized. Due to the fact that we are trained to have a critical thinking mindset towards designs, calibration, processes, forecasting and above all problem solvers within our society and the world at large. All geared towards ensuring the health safety and environment. Over the years engineers have contributed majorly in mitigating hazards or risk and became successful in making the world a better place to live.|

Today the topic given to us is the role of engineers in disaster management.
The role of engineers in disaster management is very important because technology is increasing day by day nowadays we are able to look before the disaster happen in a particular area and the measure should be taken before the disaster and natural disaster. After the disaster happen there are a lot of losses happen in an area like the falling of buildings rods pillars pools etc the engineers give the best solution to do it.

|Hello everyone. I am Narinder.
According to me, an engineer plays a vital role in disaster management. They can detect any disaster by using special instruments and alert us by forecasting. Which can decrease damage from the disaster. They also tell some techniques that how to handle a situation a time of disaster and what to do or what to not do. If there is a certain disaster come they help them by a no of methods. They remain fully prepared to face any disaster. Also, engineers make good quality of bridges, buildings poles of electricity, so that it remains safe or least damage at time of disasters. That's why engineer us also called the pillar of civilization. They are not only necessary for today's society but also these are doing very good for us for centuries.

|As quote say, 'Nation development is in engineers hand'. Yes, this is true, in today's world engineers are beneficial to grow socially, to live a lavish life, to make the web close. Without engineer, we are not able to stay. Irrigation system- the supply of water, agriculture field, canals, barrage, weir are constructed and designed by Engineer, so the useful water reaches to us. Vehicles by mechanical engineer assembled so that we are able to travel. Various apps made by computer engineer in wide use and just in one click we can do our work easy.|

|Well as everyone said in this discussion, engineers play a great role not only in today's society but since many years. Having a great safe sleep under the fan or AC in a completely protected room could have not been possible without engineers. There could have been no developed communication facilities without an IT or Computer engineer, there won't be any transportation without an Automobile engineer, without an electronic and mechanical engineer having a comfortable sleep will be a dream. Even though doctors save us, engineering principles had enhanced the positive results of an operation.
Coming to the point, "role of engineers in disaster management", many road accidents have been reduced due to improved technology like sensors etc.
Having a prototype of a building or vehicle or machine before creating actual models, with the help of design software has reduced or maybe eliminated many risk factors. Thanks to those design engineers.
In my personal experience, Still, there is a major concern that most people in some rural areas are thinking that engineering is worthless and are stopping their children from choosing this awesome degree.

I hope you're doing well and staying safe.
I'm here with my new readings towards Engineers. Engineers design, evaluate, test, modify, install, inspect, maintain a wide product of variety and systems. Engineers apply the principles of science and mathematics to develop economical solutions to technical problems. Their work is the link between scientific discoveries and commercial applications that meet societal and consumer needs. Many engineers develop new products.
There are now six major branches of engineering: Mechanical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical, Management, and Geotechnical, and literally hundreds of different subcategories of engineering under each branch.
Engineers thrive for fixing things and try to modify the existing procedure to make it faster. There are great Indian Engineers we've had seen who worked phenomenal for the growth of Indians and make every one of us proud.
Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya: He was a notable Indian engineer, scholar, statesman, and the Diwan of Mysore from 1912 to 1918.
Satish Dhawan: He is known as the father of experimental fluid dynamics research in India.
Dr. Avul Pakir Jainulabdeen Abdul Kalam(APJ Abdul Kalam): He is known as the missile man of India. He also served as 11th President of India from 2002 to 2007.
E. Sreedharan: He is known as the Metro Man of India.
Raghuram Govind Rajan: He was the 23rd Governor of the Reserve Bank of India. He was also the chief economist at the International Monetary Fund from 2003 to 2007.
Sundar Pichai: Pichai joined Google in 2004 and currently, he is Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Google Inc.
Nagavara Ramaroa Narayana Murthy: He is an Indian IT industrialist and the co-founder of Infosys.
Verghese Kurien: He is also known as the Father of the White Revolution in India.
Satyanarayan Gangaram Pitroda: He is popularly known as the Father of India's Computer and IT Revolution as he helped Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in bringing computerization as an advisor to the PM. He was also an advisor to the PM during Dr. Manmohan Singh's tenure.
So as we see that there are great engineers who worked hard to change the social structure we live in and they helped us to live a comfortable life we living in.
In my opinion, Engineers played a very important role in Disaster management. Disaster management which is popularly known as Emergency management. It is a discipline that involves preparing, supporting and rebuilding when natural or human-made disasters occur. The aim is to reduce the harmful effects of all hazards, including disasters.

|Good morning everyone today is a very big day to glad to me you all. And coming to today's topic, the role of engineering in disaster management that in these day engineer plays an impact role in our daily life because when you wake up our day starts all the process or things are based on the engineer. Every engineer plays an important role because for motorcycle mechanical engineer is a need, for fuel chemical engineer is a need, for electricity electrical engineer is a need. For all these works every engineer is needed. Without this, you don't know everything. So engineer is not an easy job. It's just a word to tell easy. But it not easy to finish the work.|

|Hello everyone, I am glad to get this opportunity to express my view on the topic: "Role of Engineers in Disaster Management".
Engineers are the pillars of civilization. The main role of engineers is to implement science in real life for the betterment of society. When it comes to disaster management, engineers can play a very vital role. Technologies are developing each and every day. Now, we can be able to know the advance forecast of any type of disasters or natural calamities and according to that forecast we can take preventive measures. This has become possible for scientists and engineers. Sometimes the effect of the disaster becomes really terrible and tragic. Electric posts fall and the entire area can not get electricity. On that time Engineers are the one and only solution. Besides, many houses are broken, trees are uprooted, for all those cases Engineers can give proper solutions. So, I conclude by saying that Engineers are the only persons who can rotate the wheel of civilization and present a better world in front of us.

|Engineers have a very important role in disaster management. Engineers can reduce the loss which will occur by these natural disasters by their proper planning and mindful execution of technology and instruments. Every engineer has his role here, as a mechanical engineer one can develop best machines which won't effect easily by nature like shockproof railway tracks, bridges etc.
Civil engineer can work on the roads and buildings so that they won't easily collapse by earthquakes etc and also electrical engineer can develop the best electric pillars to not collapse on the roads, right after they got the information about these disasters they can disconnect the electricity so that many people can save their lives by some shocks in raining they can alert the people from hit zones.
|Sainath Pawade said: (Mar 9, 2020)|
|I am Sainath today's discussion topic is the role of engineers in disaster management.
The quote that specifies " an engineer is the backbone of the nation" This is really a true an engineer can manage the disaster by their logical mind for future calamities. The proper management that can really helpful for the future. They can design a project or an idea that the future disaster may be properly managed.
|Rutu said: (Mar 3, 2020)|
|The engineer has the ability to predict the climate condition by there knowledge and the help of technology and instruments. So because of this, we can able to be ready to face that particular disaster.|
|Mansi said: (Feb 13, 2020)|
|The engineer is an important role in disaster management. Engineer makes many types of development of society.|
|Rakesh Shivbhakt said: (Dec 4, 2019)|
|I am Rakesh today's topic is the Role of Engineers in disaster management.
I want to suggest some point that shows how important engineer for our society. Before the accent year, there are so many disasters happen and many people die, some people lose their homes. I know this is not in our hands but what we can do preparation for that situation. But it is not possible earlier. But the good news is this is now possible we got information about any disaster so we can prepare for it this invention gives by our engineer. That's why an engineer is the backbone of our system. We everything doing traveling, calculation so many this is a big invention discovered by the engineer. Really proud of it. The engineer is the inventor for all discovery due to engineer we can estimate weather conditions and rain come or not we can also get it. I think they deserve a salute.
|Hav Anil Sharma said: (Nov 4, 2019)|
|Hello, friends good morning.
According to my point of view, the engineer plays a very vast role in disaster management. In ancient times we are not aware of the thing like an earthquake, storm but now the present scenario we are having vast thinking about these disasters. Engineer makes us aware of that or which will happen in the future. So by knowing this we buddy are able to save the life of mankind. And second thing is that we can't challenge to nature. If there is something gone mishappening then our engineer makes them all good the same as previous. I think the engineer gave us a new world in which we can live a luxury life. The engineer made human work very easy in every field. So, at last, I wanna say that engineer is doing a brilliant job in every field apart from disaster management.
|Teja said: (Sep 27, 2019)|
|Engineer plays a very important role in disaster management, engineer gives information about climate conditions, without an engineer we can't imagine the world. Not only a particular branch is important every branch has its own importance, like how our five fingers is important to our hand like that every branch has its own importance, inventions of new software is done by computer science engineer, constructions of buildings is done by civil engineers, inventions of vehicles & new things is done by mechanical engineers, inventions of different types of bulbs is done by electrical engineers. Engineers can create a world.|
|Sonika Singh said: (Sep 3, 2019)|
Good morning to all.
Today we are going to discuss on the topic Role of Engineers is disaster management. Yes, there are the vital role of the engineer in disaster management. Without an engineer, we can't imagine the world. Engineer design and develop, and also implement the things. An engineer gives the information about the weather conditions according to that government make the plan to overcome.
|Mahesh said: (Jul 12, 2019)|
|Good evening all of you.
I think there is the main role of the engineer in disaster management compare to others. Because the engineer has the abilities to predict the climate condition by there knowledge and the help of technology and instruments. So because of this, we can able to be ready to face that particular disaster. For example, in last month there was a prediction of cyclon. That cyclone will affect south Gujarat so the government was transferred the people to safe zone from the zone where cyclon effects. So likewise this the prediction of an earthquake is also more important and that can do by engineers and also if the earthquake and any other disaster will damage the developing things to compensate for that development the engineer is needed. For example for the construction of roads and building civil engineer is needed. For railway damages, mechanical engineers needed etc. But as the technology goes on increases day by day the engineer trying to come up with different things. For example, civil engineers are constructing the earthquake-proof building. So before the disaster and after the disaster, they are the major role of engineer.
|Ashutosh said: (Jul 5, 2019)|
This question is all about the efficiency of engineering in a different field. I am also an engineering. According to my point of view, engineers have a lot of potentials to work in every field. In a disaster management engineers have a lot of idea for it. Engineers can use his technical skill for any type of disaster like earthquake etc. In earthquake engineering used the drone technique for rescue operations and it's used the networking for informed to each other. Engineers mean to make everything simple as possible as. Thank you.
|Rudr Patil said: (Apr 9, 2019)|
|Engineering is not a specific field. It is an individual world. Where we can improve and implement our Idea. Engineering gives a contribution to developing the modern world every time.
In disaster management engineering plays the main role. We can reduce the effect of the disaster by using the latest technology. Even we can give the solution to disaster as engineer.
For example: At the time of the earthquake, we can do prediction before the earthquake about it. By using the latest technology. It happens due to the only engineering field. Engineering having history 2500 centuries back.
|Akash Shrikant Patil said: (Mar 25, 2019)|
|Engineers plays a very big role in the new modern world. In today's world, nothing can happen without engineers. They have a very good thought process. In disaster management engineers play a vital role. Engineers are also working in whether the broadcasting department, they give information about the weather conditions, on that basis government, can able to take necessary actions to avoid the disaster. After the disaster, everything would be finished but engineers can develop anything, electricity problem can be solved by Electrical engineer, Railway problems and vehicle problems solved by mechanical engineers and construction problems can be solved by civil engineers. Engineers can come up with new ideas and new technology.|
|Akash Thapa said: (Dec 30, 2018)|
|Engeener are very important for our society and also for everyone. They covert their imagination in to reality. Today what we are achieve somewhere gifted by engeener. Like we save our time by using metro train during journey it's means somewhere we have to say thanks to engeener who saveour time by making metro train and we utilize that saving time for our other work. Today engeener gives us earthquake proof building which save our life from huge earthquake. Their vast imagine towards mankind proof their importance in society. In kedarnath disaster it wouldn't be possible to save people by man power. But it was engeenering who not save the thousands of people but also provide them shelter in short spane of time.|
|Brishaketu Giri said: (Nov 16, 2018)|
|Hi, I am Brishaketu.
All are above-mentioned the several role. I includes that before disaster save design made by engineer cna help to reduce the risk of disaster. Example- design earthquake proof building. Forecasting about disaster can help be aware and reducing effect of the disaster.
|Aryan said: (Oct 16, 2018)|
|Hello everyone, myself Kumar Aryan.
The topic of our discussion is "Role of Engineers in Disaster Management. " We can already see that Engineers are playing an important role in disaster management. Engineers specialized in different fields implementing their knowledge to predict the danger before. Environment and weather engineers are working on weather forecasting and analyzing this to get the probability of any climatic conditions that can happen in future thereby warning the people about the destruction that can happen and how to control the situation. Engineers also get the impact of earthquakes, and it's intensity over the region. Astronomical Engineers are also analyzing the rotation of the earth and things happening on the planetary level.
So, Engineers are doing great jobs in preventing the disaster from happening, thereby reducing the loss that can occur by these disasters.
|Madhu said: (Sep 24, 2018)|
|Engineers are more developed in India. Single engineer may design a world. Most of the engineers are complete their studies but they didn't get their jobs.|
|Rajesh said: (Sep 8, 2018)|
|Hi I am Rajesh, recently in Kerala flood is happened in those time lots of engineers helping through social media and also makes an application for helping and volunteering.|
|Debasish said: (Sep 5, 2018)|
|Engineers play a vital role in disaster management.
As you know engineers working at weather forecasting centers inform us about the movement of natural calamities. They are providing necessary information after that government bodies take required actions in order to avoid the disaster upto a maximum possible extent.
Engineers are also the key people after the disaster because after disaster a lot of damage might occur in that region which are rectified by the engineers like electricity problem by electrical engineer and railways track by mechanical engineer and construction works by civil engineer and so many things.
Hence Engineers are the persons who make it possible for the people to live a healthy lifestyle after the disaster also.
|Nihal Pandey said: (Aug 19, 2018)|
|Engineers are most important persons in our life. Without engineer we can not survive. Engineers make many types development for society. Engineers make a powerful wearing capacity by his technology. Engineers working way different another persons. His thoughts, thinking and imagination power are very different. Then I can say by full confidence. If without technology engineer can be survive but without engineers technology can not be survive.|
|Sushmita said: (Aug 2, 2018)|
|Engineers are the boon to the society. They can either make or break a society. They are the ones who can turn our vision into reality. Engineers can design and develop products, they can pave new ways to reach people everyone around the world, they can invent almost anything they want to and their role in disaster affected regions is huge. They should come up with solutions that are free because people won't be able to afford in such times of disaster. Engineers working in the corporate sector should volunteer in those disaster affected regions as part of their social responsibility and come to their relief. Implementing various tools they can come up with solutions that would rather prevent such disasters from happening in the near future.|
