Sylvania Campus to hold spring term ‘lockdown drill’
Photos and Story by Kate Chester
The Sylvania Campus will hold its spring term 2012 “lockdown drill” on Wednesday, April 11 at 2 p.m., using its Mass Notification and Alert System. Everyone on campus will participate in the lockdown drill, which offers an opportunity to practice a non-evacuation emergency that is different than a fire alarm.
The drill will begin with an audible tone, followed by flashing strobe lights (indoors) and audible instructions. The drill – which lasts approximately three minutes – will conclude with an “all clear” message.
Tips to remember:
- If you are in a classroom, lab or office, conceal and cover yourself.
- If you are in an indoor, non-classroom, student or public gathering area (such as the College Center Mall), building and floor monitors will direct you to the safest place possible to conceal and cover yourself.
- If you are in an outside area, seek a safe area and conceal and cover yourself.
