The college's emergency notification system, e2Campus, instantly and simultaneously provides time-sensitive emergency alerts and school closings/inclement weather announcements to all registered mobile phones, BlackBerrys, wireless PDAs, pagers, and e-mail addresses.
e2Campus messages can also be retrieved from Facebook and Twitter or any other social networking site.
Students, faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to register for e2Campus.
The college has an outdoor warning notification. A siren sounds in the event of a tornado or other severe weather when seeking immediate shelter is recommended. An announcement will also be made over the college's PA system.
In such an event, the campus community should seek shelter in a "Severe Weather Area Shelter" and close all doors to stairwells, interior hallways, rooms and bathrooms. Stay away from and do not open windows and exterior doors.
If in a vehicle, get out and seek shelter in a sturdy building. Do not drive or try to outrun a tornado. If a building is not available, a depression such as a ditch or ravine offers some protection.
