Our educational institution has as a priority to take care of the welfare and integrity of all the members of our educational community. It is our concern to ensure the safety, care, and development of a culture of prevention, a task that is the responsibility of all the members of the Lincoln community.
Like all educational institutions, we are exposed to internal and external situations that pose risks for the members of our community. Our prevention task seeks to identify these situations opportunely because of the danger they represent for the safety of our students and the teaching and administrative staff, in order to ensure an appropriate response to minimize possible damages.
For that purpose, our Civil Defense Committee has been formed and some measures have been taken for emergency cases. Particularly, we want to give them some instructions in case of earthquakes.
Our school has been carrying out earthquake drills programmed by the Ministry of Education and the National Institute of Civil Defense (INDECI). We also perform other drills without prior notice at various times of the day.
2. IN CASE OF EMERGENCY, WE HAVE THE FOLLOWING:
- First-aid brigade formed by the school staff, directed by the doctor and the nurses of the institution.
- Communication with the Municipality of La Molina, Fire department, National Police, volunteer parents, and registration of physician parents for any contingency.
-Tents to care for and give assistance to the wounded.
-Warehouses for emergency situations are being implemented with water, biscuits, tuna, flashlights, battery-powered radios, internal communication radios, megaphones, tools for rescue and supplies, and medicines for the care of the injured.
- We have a contingency plan that consists of several phases and which involves all our staff. This plan ensures that our students are accompanied all the time.
3. PHASES FOR EMERGENCY SITUATIONS
Our Emergency Plan includes 6 phases:
