Schools icon Take Action

Upon identifying an emerging significant risk from a 'rising tide' event to, or within, the region, the RRC should:

  1. Form the Regional Response Team (RRT).
  2. Analyse the risk and expected impact on the region.
  3. Engage with the District Disaster Coordination Centre (DDCC) – as established.
  4. Consider the courses of action.
  5. Consult with the relevant School Response Controllers (Principals).
  6. Decide on and implement the regional strategy.
  7. Request resources if necessary e.g. Deployable Response Team (DRT).
  8. Manage the school closure system for the region.
  9. Commence the Communication Strategy.
  10. If formed, brief the Executive Response Team (ERT) on the progress and status; otherwise, advise the Emergency and Security Management Unit (ESMU) and the supervising ADG State School - Operations.
  11. Engage the Business Continuity Plan.
