Things to Know – Tuesday, June 20, 2017

Yesterday was a reminder of the importance of paying attention to emergency preparedness. As our SWC Police Department works with us on drills and shoring up our emergency preparedness, I hope you will take a few minutes to check out this short important reminder of evacuation plans and what to do.

Thank you to everyone who responded with sheltering in place yesterday. In the debrief of the incident yesterday, we learned a lot about the holes in our planning and have already taken steps to shore up the communications links, Incident Command responsibilities, etc. In early July we are moving to a new emergency alert system and that will also be an improvement.

It was a good ending with the subject being caught, without a serious incident. The College leadership appreciates the extra care our SWC Police Department took with our College for Kids youth reuniting with their parents. Thank you.

Thank you again everyone for taking the extra precautions, and your comments afterwards.

Success is where preparation and opportunity meet. Bobby Unser
