Surrey Schools has a school safety alert system that helps keep students, staff and volunteers safe during an actual or potential threat to safety.
School administrators are authorized to activate a safety alert and drills take place at schools regularly to ensure everyone knows the safety rules and how to follow them.
The alert system uses specific terms and actions for various situations:
EVACUATE is used when there is a threat such as a fire, bomb threat or gas leak.
DROP-COVER-HOLD ON is used during events such as an earthquake or explosion.
LOCKDOWN is used in situations where there is a safety risk inside the building.
HOLD & SECURE is used where there is a safety risk outside the building.
SHELTER IN PLACE is used where there are concerns about issues such as extreme weather, poor air quality or a wild animal on school grounds.
