ANNUAL NOTICES

Each year, Campus Safety notifies the campus community with updates in accordance with state and federal regulations. Thank you for taking the time to review this vital information and helping to make Shasta College a safer and more successful community.
 

DRILLS:

Please save the dates and times below for 2019 emergency preparedness drills:

LOCKDOWN-ALICE PROTOCOL: Wednesday, March 6th, 2019

    • 11:05 AM and 6:05 PM

The Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) system will be activated to start and end the drill.

A RAVE Test Alert will be sent.

Once the announcement is made, please take the following mesures if you are inside a room or classroom:

  • Shut and lock doors and all windows (if available, pull draperies or close blinds and blacken any doorway windows). DO NOT open the door for anyone or peek out the windows until "All Clear" Signal is given.
  • Follow *ALICE Protocol.
  • Keep calm and quiet
  • Communicate if everyone is OK or if students are missing/injured on exterior door or window IF it is safe to do so.
  • REMAIN in classrooms and offices until the "All Clear" Signal is given or you are escorted by first responders.
  • Facilities and Campus Safety will be conducting visual observations for each building during the drill and documenting those findings.
 
*Lockdown Procedures: ALICE (non-sequential)
Alert is first becoming aware of a threat. The sooner you understand you are in danger, the sooner you can safe yourself. A speedy response time is critical.
 
Lockdown is instructions on practical techniques to barricade a room, what to do with mobile and electronic devices, how and when to communicate with law enforcement, and how to use your time in lockdown to prepare to use other strategies.
 
Inform is to communicate information in as real time as possible, if it is safe to do so. Armed intruder situations are unpredictable and evolve quickly, which means that on going, real time information is key to making effective survival.
 
Counter is to create noise, movement, distance, and distraction with the intent of reducing the shooter's ability to shoot accurately.
 
Evacuate to a safe area. This takes people out of harm's way and hopefully prevents civilians from having to come into any ocntact with the shooter.

It will sound like this; Command Center to Building 100, are you clear and safe. Your Response: All clear. The Command Center will acknowledge by saying “copy 100 all clear”. Remain in your evacuation zones until given the response from the Command Center to return to normal operations. If you are not evacuated and clear indicate by saying “still evacuating”, We will then move forward and return to your building. We should not be utilizing the radio other than to speak with the Incident Command Center.
  12. Extended Education sites shall report in by phone to Campus Safety once your drill is complete (530) 242-7910. Follow the same principles outlined above, but with modification due to the site itself.
 

Emergency Operations Plan (EOP):

The Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) details how the District will manage and coordinate resources and personnel responding to emergency situations. The plan is designed to address possible disasters and emergencies that may threaten our campus community. The EOP is updated annually and is written to conform to California State and Federal Laws governing emergency response operations. We encourage you to view the EOP on our webpage: http://www.shastacollege.edu/Administrative%20Services/Security/Assets/EMERGENCY%20OPERATIONS%20PLAN%20DECEMBER%202017.pdf
 
AUTOMATED EXTERNAL DEFIBRILLATOR (AED): 
The AED unit will check a victim’s heart rhythm and will deliver an electric shock only if it determines that defibrillation is required to restore the heart’s normal rhythm. Shasta College’s AED program is intended to ensure that AEDs are highly visible and readily accessible. We will continue to depend on EMS response (9-1-1) for medical emergencies.
