St. Clair College will be conducting three emergency communication scenarios on an active attacker for students and staff at all campuses.
The Chatham campus event takes place at 2:15 p.m. on Thursday. In Windsor, the downtown campus even takes place at 10:15 a.m. Tuesday, while the South Campus has its event at 10:15 a.m. Thursday.
All students and staff are aware of the event scheduling.
Over the past few weeks, everyone has been instructed to upload the Alertus emergency communication app to their phones.
On the day of the communications exercise, there will be test messaging on the Alertus app, computer screens, and classroom discussions.
Students in classes and staff in their offices will be asked to watch the St. Clair College active attacker video produced by the college.
There will be Spotlight on Emergency Preparedness brochures distributed to all.
This is a communication exercise only. No one is expected to run, hide or fight during this exercise.
The test emergency message will be sent out at the time of the exercise.
When the session is over, a complete scenario message will be sent out 15 minutes after the start of the exercise.
The college has been working with Windsor police and Chatham-Kent police in preparation for these communication exercises.
