STUDENT SAFETY – BUSHFIRE EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
As The Basin PS is close to the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges we have been placed on the ‘Bushfire At Risk Register’. Should there be a predicted “CODE RED” day, school community members will be notified three days prior to the predicted closure. One day prior to the closure day(s) another letter or SMS message will confirm the closure. If the school is closed, nobody will be on site - this includes all staff and students. As the Out of School Hours Care Program will also be closed, families will be required to make alternate arrangements for such days. In the next few weeks we will have an organised evacuation drill as part of our Emergency Management Plan.
Could I ask parents whose contact details have recently changed to notify the office please, especially if we need to send you a CODE RED message or your child is sick or injured!
