Emergency Management

Fire and other emergencies

There is a predetermined evacuation procedure for fire or other emergencies. A continuous ringing of the fire bell signals this. Regular fire drills are conducted. We also conduct regular drills for other emergencies such as an aggressive or violent person in the vicinity.

Cyclones

Schools are usually closed well in advance of the occurrence of a cyclone. However in the event of a cyclone becoming imminent during school time, parents must collect their children from school immediately following the Radio Broadcast Evacuation Request. Children should be collected from their classrooms. Adults other than parents may collect a child after signing the appropriate form supplied by the teacher. If children remain at school they will be accompanied to a cyclone shelter by the Principal. If this becomes necessary, information concerning the location of the children will be posted on the front door.

Durack School is not a designated cyclone shelter.
