Appendix 4. Rest Centre Is your school a designated rest centre? If not, we encourage you to consider your school becoming one. Being a rest centre will give the school an opportunity to provide shelter for members of the community that may be suffering from a major or minor emergency. Essentially, by being a designated rest centre the school could help save lives. A rest centre is set up to provide temporary accommodation for people who have been affected by an emergency, for example, flooding, a gas leak, fire or unexploded bomb and is intended to provide basic care for a short period while the incident is dealt with. KCC maintains a rest centre directory for the County and premises include secondary schools, leisure centres and village/community halls. If your school is a designated rest centre please include the key holder contact details in Appendix 4. For more information about being a rest centre (including a list of Q&As) please visit the emergency planning pages on Kent Trust Web (see page 12). Useful Websites Kent Trust Web 12

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
