Source(s):  National Mirror, Global Media Mirror Limited

The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has trained over 800 students in 42 selected secondary schools in disaster management to help save lives and prevent injuries during hazards, reports the National Mirror. As explained by the Director General of NEMA, Alhaji Muhammad Sani-Sidi, the programme is aimed at reducing undue interruptions to the provision of education, or ensuring its swift resumption in the event of an interruption, and developing a resilient population that is able to reduce the economic, social and cultural impacts should a hazardous event occur.
