Incident Control System Plan
The plan describes the school and its environment, the potential hazards
to which it may be exposed and the manner in which emergencies will be
managed by the school.

It assumes that staff and students will be familiar with its contents and will
be regularly drilled in the procedures to be adopted in an emergency. It
also assumes that preventative measures will have been implemented to
reduce the impact of an emergency.

The plan is intended to be flexible and to co-ordinate with external
providers of emergency management.

All incidents likely to affect the safety and well being of students, teachers
and visitors are to be reported immediately and responded to as soon as
possible.

The school recognizes the need to implement long term measures to
assist the school community to return to normal functioning after the
initial crisis.

The plan is to be reviewed annually by the School Council and
immediately following any emergency which may occur.

A copy of the plan is to be sent to local police and fire authorities for
endorsement and to ensure co-ordination in the event of an emergency.
