Emergencies can happen at any time, anywhere, including at school.

There are simple and practical steps you can take to protect yourself, your students and your peers. Do one simple thing – create an emergency plan for your school using RediPlan or the Get Prepared app. Then make sure all the members of your school community know what to do. 

Once you've made your emergency plan, head to our educational resources page to find lesson plans and other resources for school students, including fun games, videos and activities for students and teachers.
