Emergency Procedure

Emergency Procedure

Our ‘Earthquake Safety Manual for Parents’  has been created to clarify emergency earthquake  procedures at BST if an earthquake were to occur during school time, including:                                    

  • What BST has done to prepare for a major earthquake
  • What students should do in the event of an earthquake 
  • What parents should do in the event of an earthquake 

Please take the time to read this entire manual. If you have any questions about  the contents or suggestions for additions or revisions, please contact the Deputy Principal, David James at

Earthquake Preparation

Tokyo has more earthquakes than any other large city in the world. Therefore we take emergency preparedness very seriously at our School. Three core principles inform our approach.

The same principles apply to all emergencies, including fires.
