The college's Security Officers are a critical emergency resource that the college offers to students, faculty and staff. Security Officers respond to all types of emergencies on campus.
The college also provides the following emergency resources.
The college has installed several Blue Light emergency call boxes in campus parking lots and on the K, N and T buildings. Large signs and blue lights mark the locations of the emergency boxes.
By pushing the call box button, the call goes to the college's emergency phone line, x8123, and security personnel are immediately notified. As an additional safeguard, each call box is equipped with a strobe light that flashes when a message is transmitted enabling responding college personnel to better locate the call box.
If emergency assistance is required, go to the nearest call box and follow the instructions printed on the box. After normal operating hours, calls from the Blue Light boxes are forwarded to the County's 911 Center.
Telephones are located in each classroom, hallways and the Student Center. The college's emergency number, x8123, is posted on these phones so that students, faculty and staff can alert the college's Security Officers when there is an immediate threatening situation.
Phones are also provided in each elevator that will dial 911.
These phones are for the safety of students, faculty and staff. They have been placed both in conjunction with our Crisis Management Plan and to offer a higher level of safety and security to the college community.
Safety/security guides are posted in every classroom and in hallways. The guide includes emergency phone numbers and procedures to follow in the case of a crisis, accident, injury or fire.
Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) maintained on the premises of Carroll Community College are strategically located around campus for a three minute response time. The ownership and maintenance of these devices are in compliance with the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (MIEMMS) and can be found by AED signs or specially marked flyers on bulletin boards. Call x8123 or 410-386-8123, and a Security Officer who is trained and certified to use the equipment will respond. According to MIEMMS, AEDs may also be used in emergency situations warranting their use by any individual willing to operate the AED.
Carroll is committed to providing a safe and healthful environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors, and as such bloodborne pathogen kits are located in hallways through out the college. The kits include scoop and scraper, medical gloves, antibacterial wipes, germicidal solution and wipe with instructions, fluid control solidifier, disposal apron, bio bag with closure, infectious waste tag and safety shield for eyes and face in compliance with OSHA standards.
