Schools icon Take Action

If the event, either rising tide or sudden, has also impacted on the regional office location, then in addition to the above:

  1. Assess safety of regional staff.
  2. Assess the status of the regional office/s, noting BAS protocols.
  3. If any visible damage or potential hazards on the site, e.g. asbestos, engage BAS for site inspection.
  4. If required, consider closing the office and seeking an alternate operating location.
  5. If formed, regularly brief the Executive Response Controller, otherwise advise Emergency and School Security (E&SS) and the supervising ADG (State School Operations).​
  6. Utilise the Communication Strategy.
  7. Monitor the regional staff from a welfare perspective.
  8. Implement the Regional Business Continuity Plan as required.
  9. If closure was necessary, re-open the regional office/s after conducting a suitability assessment and determining that it is safe to do so.
