Activation of the Emergency Siren Alert System implies that the Randolph College campus community is experiencing an “Immediate Catastrophic Event.”
Examples of these events may include hostile intruders, terrorist incident, mass violence and severe weather warnings (tornado). Such an event also implies that personal injury, loss of life and/or catastrophic property damage is imminent.
This emergency also activates the Critical Incident Management Plan. Other notification methods such as mass campus email alerts, e2Campus text and email alerts and campus telephone voicemail alerts may be activated in advance of the emergency alert siren sounding.
When activated, the siren will sound steadily for about three (3) minutes. Should you hear the emergency alert siren at anytime, (unless you have been informed of siren testing) you should take the following action:
This communication does not include campus emergency procedures in its entirety, but should serve as an information resource regarding what to do if the emergency alert siren sounds. Portions of the College’s Emergency Procedures and Safety Information are linked to the Campus Safety web page, which may be found at www.randolphcollege.edu/campussafety/.
Further information and training concerning emergency preparedness is forthcoming. Please do not hesitate to contact me with your questions or concerns about campus safety at Randolph College.
