    Looking at this drill and comparing it with similar drills in the Western countries where intense operations involving fire engines, helicopters and drones and well equipped and very alert teams involved, this looks like a lazy bunch of people, ill-equipped flimsy trolley for removing the victims etc..
    This demonstrates what a third world country India is!!

    Looking at this joke of drill, I nearly fell laughing.
    A very light weight demo, where a few aare involved with one water hose and a patient trolley. That drill is to contain the effects of LNG and gas -related explosion, which will cause massive destruction all around in a large perimeter, of the thickly populated area!
    What a bunch of neanderthals!!
