The college is currently under task to evaluate and improve evacuation procedures and methods for notifying students or staff in the event of an evacuation. At this time, evacuation orders may come over the public address system, personally from an administrator or personally from a police officer. Except for a fire, explosion or smoke report, the fire alarm system will not be used as a tool to evacuate a building.
The following are general guidelines for when to evacuate a building.
I. TornadoRemain in the building and move to the Shelter area. (The shelter areas are posted in each classroom).
