Other important news…



For the safety of the college community, the college has established an emergency evacuation procedure. Throughout the year, unannounced drills are conducted to familiarize students, faculty, staff and visitors with this procedure.

1. All general building evacuations will occur when an audible alarm sounds and visible alarm strobe lights flash and/or upon notification by Public Safety.

2. When the alarm sounds or upon notification, leave by the nearest uncompromised exit of the building. Those requiring additional assistance should assemble at the designated areas on the second and third floor elevator bay bridges.

3. Do NOT use elevators.

4. Once outside, move clear of the building allowing others to exit. Available CAST members (see below for additional information) will be at these locations. You can identify these individuals by their fluorescent vests.

5. Keep driveways and walkways clear for emergency personnel.

6. Listen for additional instructions – you will be told via the public address system when it is safe to re-enter the building or portions of the building.

What is the College Administrative Support Team (CAST)?

The Batavia Campus CAST is authorized to provide assistance as requested during real or perceived emergency events and non-emergency incidents. Members are specifically trained to assist with building evacuations. Please be responsive to requests for information and directives given by CAST team members.

If you would like to become a member of the CAST, please contact Public Safety (ext. 6240) or Valerie Hale in Planning & Institutional Effectiveness (ext. 6200).
