On Wed Dec 1 at 6.30pm, Rohan Carboon, a bushfire safety consultant and parent at our school will present a talk on the Silver Tree Bushfire Procedures.
It will take place in the Primary School Building. He will discuss such matters as:
- Why the school will be closed on “Catastrophic” Fire Danger Rating Days
- Evacuation triggers and procedures ( ie the school plan) with encouragement for parents to mirror there own Bushfire Survival Plan to reflect that of the school’s
- Govt and school policy
- Bushfire behaviour
- Human fatalities
- Building survival
- Stay and defend procedures (if safe early evacuation is not possible )
- Learn why the School was evacuated from the recent John Forrest bushfire and why the school would evacuate again.
Also, why parents should not drive to the school if a bushfire is very close to the school.
We hope to see you there!
