Bushfire Emergency Procedures



As The Basin PS is close to the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges we have been placed on the ‘Bushfire At Risk Register’. Should there be a predicted “CODE RED” day, school community members will be notified three days prior to the predicted closure. One day prior to the closure day(s) another letter or SMS message will confirm the closure.

If the school is closed, nobody will be on site - this includes all staff and students. As the Out of School Hours Care Program will also be closed, families will be required to make alternate arrangements for such days. Each term we have an organised evacuation drill as part of our Emergency Management Plan.

Parents and Carers - please notify the office immediately if your contact details have changed, as we use these contact details to send you a CODE RED message or if your child is sick or injured!
