Should a emergency warning or notification need to be made immediately to warn of existing or impending danger ( tornado or severe weather warning, natural or man made disaster or the existence of criminal activity on campus or other emergency) the college will use multiple means of communicating that emergency message including :
· Emergency Notification System ( a campus wide public address system in each building)
· Email alert system
· Text messaging system
· Emergency status page on the colleges’ website
· Signage posted in each building
In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus that in the judgment of the College President, or designee, in consultation with the Director of Campus Safety constitutes a ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning can be issued through any or all of the above mentioned means of communication.
Criminal activity which represents a continuing danger to the campus community will be communicated by any or all of the above listed means unless issuing the notification will, in the professional judgment of responsible authorities, compromise efforts to assist a victim or to contain, respond to, or otherwise mitigate the emergency.
The Emergency Notification and Timely Warning policy can also be referenced in the Campus Emergency Operations Plan.
