Reminder: Evacuation Exercises This Week

The college will conduct building evacuation exercises during the week of September 4– 7 at our Northwest campus and the Centers. These evacuation exercises are required by the Clery Act for all institutes of higher education.In order to provide a more effective test of our evacuation procedures, the College does not divulge which buildings will be evacuated nor at what times of day.The fire alarms will sound in the targeted buildings five minutes before the end of class. Faculty and students MUST vacate the building during this exercise.

Thanks for your understanding about the importance of complying with this Federal mandate.
