After notification of a suspected biological/chemical incident, the following steps and actions are initiated immediately to reduce the risk of bodily harm:
Response Plan in Dealing with the Biological or Chemical Incident
Follow the Secured Room procedure as instructed by the Director.
Upon receiving the “secured room” order, all students and staff, who are involved in outdoor activities return to their designated room or office.
Initially all students and staff are kept in their designated room until the Director, assesses the situation and advises the best course of action such as moving to a particular on-site or off-site safe haven.
When students, staff, or other individuals in the building need emergency medical attention, the Principal or Deputy will notify the First Aid Brigade.
As the incident progresses and further analyses are made, information is channeled to the Principal or Deputy and instructions are given to the Teachers.
Once released, students and staff do not return to the School until the Director orders it.
