    Evacuation Plan

    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.

    Tornado
    Remain in the building and move to the Shelter area. The shelter areas are posted in each classroom.

    Fire
    Evacuate the building when alarm sounds. For buildings not affected by the alarm, remain in the building unless ordered to evacuate by the Fire Department, Administrator-in-charge or police.

    Explosion
    Evacuate affected building only. For buildings not affected by the incident, remain in the building unless ordered to evacuate by the Fire Department, Administrator-in-charge or police.

    Power Failure
    Remain in building until orders are received from the Administrator-in-charge or police.

    Air Plane Crash
    Evacuate the building(s) closest to crash site. Then clear each building, one at a time, until all students/employees are off the campus.

    Storm, Snow, Wind, Rain and Ice
    Await instructions from the Administrator-in-charge.
