Bushfire at Risk (BARR) & Emergency Management.


Early childhood services and schools at the highest risk of fire danger are placed on the Department’s Bushfire-At-Risk Register (BARR). Inclusion on this register is a trigger for these facilities to pre-emptively close on days determined Code Red in their Bureau of Meteorology district by the Emergency Management Commissioner. All bus routes servicing closed schools, including any bus routes which they might coordinate as a bus coordinating school are cancelled.

                                            Marysville Primary School is included on the BARR register. 

Parents should be familiar with the details of the emergency management plan for their child’s early childhood service or school, including whether the school is listed on the Bushfire-At-Risk Register and raise any queries or concerns with their child’s principal, teacher or school council representative. Parents are also advised to make sure the school or service has their current contact details, including mobile phone number.  In addition, should they arise EMP notifications are avilable through our MPS FlexiBuzz application for smart phones. 

The purpose of Marysville Primary School's  Emergency Mangement Plan (EMP) is to provide a detailed plan of how Marysville Primary will prepare and respond to emergency mangement situations.

Our EMP applies to all educators, children, visitors and volunteers at Marysville Primary School in conjunction with Marysville District Kindergarten Association - (MDKA).


A copy of our EMP is communicated and distrubuted to all community and staff members and relevant parties including the Department of Education North East Region, Police, CFA and others.
