The College has developed a Crisis and Emergency Management Plan that establishes actions of campus staff and students during an event such as a fire, bomb threat, or tornado. Depending on the event, students and faculty may be directed to (1) Shelter-in Place (stay in the classroom until further notice), (2) move to an Internal Assembly Area (IAA) within the building or to another building on the campus until the event is over, or (3) evacuate to an Emergency Assembly Area (EAA) outside of the building. Evacuation routes are posted in each classroom. The map indicates the route to the nearest exit. Students should review the map to make sure that the exit routes for the building are clearly understood. There are multiple assembly points for outside evacuation; therefore, it is critical that each student know the assembly point for each building. The information regarding locations of the Emergency Assembly Areas and Internal Assembly Areas for all classrooms and spaces on the various campuses is available on the College’s Crisis and Emergency Management Plan (CEMP) webpage.
