EMERGANCY PROCEDURES

  • Key staff are nominated to form a crisis management team and are responsible to carry out the different response plans for our school.
  • The College has an emergency plan in place for all civil emergency situations.
  • The College has evacuation drills for different emergency scenarios and practice drills are held regularly.
  • The College evacuation zone is not in a tsunami safe zone and therefore we do have to locate to higher ground in the event of a tsunami we move to 32 McCathie Road, Ruakaka
  • Telecommunications allowing, parents will be notified of their child’s safety via the College App, text messages, Facebook, email and the school website.
  • The College has a stock of emergency, shelter and first aid supplies to care for students and staff onsite and offsite.

Parents & Caregivers – what you can do:

  • Ensure the College has all up-to-date mobile, email contact information for you and your nominated emergency contacts. You can check and edit these details when you log on to your PC Schools Spider account. Please note your child will only be released to you or his nominated emergency contact.
  • An SMS will be sent out to all parents in the event of a major disaster as an emergency notification.
  • Download the College App to receive urgent notifications. From past experience the College App and Facebook have been the most effective channels of communication.
  • ‘Like’ Bream Bay College on Facebook. Please note you will need to visit the College’s facebook page as we cannot guarantee any posts will appear in your personal newsfeed.
  •  Have your own family emergency communication plan in place, particularly if your family is located in different parts of the area during the day.
  • In the event of a major disaster the College is well equipped to provide for student and staff and for this reason parents/caregivers do not need to risk their own lives by rushing to collect children.
  •  Utilise official sources of information across the Northalnd region – Civil Defence , Get Prepared , Metservice , – all which provide updates on how flooding and earthquakes continue to impact upon the region.
  • If your child has specific dietary requirements then we recommend providing a named, sealed container with non-perishable foods to the College office who will store it with the other emergency food supplies.
