Mass evacuation update

5/09/2013

​At approximately 9.10am today, we enacted evacuation procedures due to what we have now been advised was a release of Mercaptan in the Banyo community. Mercaptan is a non-toxic stenching agent for LPG gas.

The college immediately notified the emergency service officers in the ambulance, fire and police departments.

The fire brigade monitored the air of every room in the college before we were cleared to return at 12.15pm.

The safety of students and staff at Earnshaw State College is given the highest priority and I would like to thank the school community for all your support and co-operation during this time.

If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

College Principal
