Crisis Management

The following procedures are simplified. Use common sense in all activities and responses.
 
  1. Call 911.  Stay on the line and give clear, accurate information on the situation occurring, if at all possible.  Give location within the building.  If near a college phone call the Business Office to notify them of the situation.  The Business Office will do a Megaphone alert and phone all call to notify all occupants.
  2. Notify the Executive Dean or Campus Dean in the building who is designated to act in such emergencies.  In no case is physical force to be used by college personnel.
 
The police will coordinate the situation upon arrival.
 

GUN FIRE

  1. If gun fire is heard:  Dial 911. Keep the phone connection until help arrives.
 
The police will coordinate the situation upon arrival.
 

STUDENT CRISIS

The educational counseling staff assist students in pursuit of educational goals.  When a crisis situation is beyond the scope of the services offered at the college, the student is provided with referral information to the appropriate community resources. Examples of crisis situations may include:
 
  • SUICIDE ATTEMPT
  • SUBSTANCE ABUSE
  • DEATH OF A LOVED ONE
  • STRESS
  • DEPRESSION
  • SEXUAL ASSAULT
  • EATING DISORDERS
  • DOMESTIC ABUSE
 
If a student has indicated a plan or an intent to harm him/herself or others or you feel is in need of immediate attention, please call 911 and contact the campus dean.  For less urgent crisis assistance or for community referral information, please direct the student to an educational counselor.    
 
Employees in need of assistance should contact Human Resources (ext. 4433) for Employee Assistance or call the Employee Assistance Provider, Connections, at 1-800-779-6125.
