Emergency Response Training & Drills
The College has published an Emergency Procedures Quick Reference Guide. This guide is being placed in every campus classroom, in academic and administrative departments, and in residence halls. It will be the centerpiece for comprehensive emergency response training for faculty, staff, and students, including the scheduling and execution of an annual series of emergency response drills.
It is the responsibility of all faculty and staff members to be familiar with the safety and emergency response information and procedures detailed in the guide.
Emergency exit maps and rally point locations are posted in all residence hall rooms, classrooms and departments on campus.
Fire safety procedures are discussed regularly with all students who live in campus residence halls and a series of fire drills is scheduled annually.
