Emergency Procedures

There are always unique situations that arise while hosting international students. The situation may be a new incident, a student reacting in an unusual way, or something else entirely. The Homestay Office is here to support you as new situations occur. If you are ever uncertain about a situation, want to run an idea by someone, or talk through an experience, do not hesitate to contact our office. We encourage you to read through APPENDIX B- HOMESTAY INCIDENT COMMUNICATION PROTOCOL in the Hosting Experience Manual,  regarding emergency procedures and important numbers on page 29-34.
