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.

Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Hello all.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
