School Emergency Plans

Emergencies can happen at any time, so it's important for schools to be prepared by having a plan in place to respond to emergencies, and practise this plan to minimise the effect on students and staff.  

As a parent or guardian you should also be aware of your school's emergency plans so you know where to meet your child in the event of a disaster.  
WREMO actively engages with schools across our region to ensure their plans are fit for purpose and are regularly practised. 

School Emergency Planning for Schools and Pre-Schools

Schools and Early Learning Services 

WREMO holds emergency planning workshops for schools and early learning services to come together and understand what needs to be in their emergency plans.

The workshops are also an opportunity to share their challenges and discuss solutions. 


As parents it's important to know your tamariki's school emergency plan.

  • Is your school/early childhood education facility in a tsunami zone?
  • Make sure you know what their evacuation plan is and where there off-site evacuation point is. 
  • Have you provided back-up contacts to the school?

Find your school/ECE emergency plan on their website.
