FIRE DANGER & BUSHFIRE POLICY
On a day when the CFS has forecast for the Mt Lofty Ranges:
CATASTROPHIC 100+ Fire Danger Rating - all U3A Adelaide Hills classes will be cancelled.
EXTREME 75 – 99 Fire Danger Rating – classes will be determined at the discretion of the
individual Course Organiser/Presenter
To check fire warnings, go to www.bom.gov.au . Click on the SA map. Warnings appear at the top of the list.
Members should take responsibility for their own safety and follow their own individual bushfire plan.
If anyone collapses at a U3A Adelaide Hills course or event, it is our policy to call an ambulance. Members are advised to ensure they have adequate personal Ambulance Insurance to cover any call-out costs.
The reverse of the member’s name tag will be checked for contact person and number to phone. Any pre-existing medical conditions which may be relevant can be passed onto the organiser.
U3A Adelaide Hills name badges are made available. Please wear to classes to help us get to know one another. Alternatively, you may wish to purchase one of the new magnetic name tags which can be ordered through our Shop for a cost of $12.00 each.
(Note: people with pacemakers are advised to order a ‘pin/clip badge – not magnetic.)
PHOTOGRAPHY & PUBLICITY
Any photographs taken at U3A events may be used for publicity purposes. If you do not wish your image to be used, please advise the photographer not to include you and, if possible, move to the sidelines to allow photography of the rest of the group. Failure to do this and notify the secretary in advance of your wishes, implies tacit approval of our policy and your inclusion.
U3A Adelaide Hills collects personal information to enable efficient delivery of its services. No data will be provided to third party individuals or organisations. Members may opt not to provide full details, however, incomplete disclosure of requested detail may prevent full delivery of services.
REFUND & CANCELLATION POLICY
Membership Fees: This is a non refundable fee.
Short Courses: Payment is required in advance and no refunds will be payable if you are unable to attend. You may find a suitable substitute to attend in your place, in which case the Course Coordinator should be notified.
