City Office of Education Sets Up Early Disaster Alert System for All Local Schools

Busan Metropolitan City Office of Education announced that it has set up an early disaster alert system for all public elementary, middle, high, and special schools in the city.

When a disaster occurs, an alert is notified through a city-run disaster management system which is relayed to the school’s studio room through a remote broadcasting system.

To prevent any confusion in communication, the education office and the city has set up standards and guidelines for issuing earthquake broadcasts.

For the earthquake announcement to be broadcast in the early warning system, the tremors should reach the standard of magnitude 5 or higher in the Busan area.

When the earthquake announcement is made, schools will immediately suspend education activities and react according to the emergency evacuation drills.
