Hagley’s emergency evacuation procedures:

In an evacuation, there is one safe zone for the whole school. Assemble on the main lawn at the front of the college.


If there is a serious earthquake, DROP, COVER, HOLD.
Stay inside until the earthquake stops. Do not move outside during an earthquake.

Do not wait for an alarm. All facilities are evacuated immediately after the earthquake has stopped. Stay clear of buildings and move to the safe zone.


Turn off all machinery and power to equipment and proceed to the safe zone.

Hagley Fire Alarm Sounds


A lockdown occurs when there is a situation where safety is potentially in danger – for example, a chemical spill, or an intruder on site.

When the lockdown alarm sounds, immediately lock all external doors and windows.  Keep out of view, lying on the floor away from windows until the ALL CLEAR is sounded.
