There are actions that should be taken before, during and after an event that are unique to each hazard. One function of Emergency Management is to identify the hazards that have happened or could happen in our area and plan for the unique actions for each, sharing the plans with the CPCC community.
Call College Security if you need assistance with any safety or security matters, apparent crimes, first aid or medical emergencies. We encourage you to report any crime, regardless of how insignificant it may seem. Call 6632 from any on-campus telephone, and on Central Campus at the red or yellow security telephones.
The security officer who answers your call is trained in handling emergencies. When calling be prepared to:
- Give your location.
- Describe the nature of the emergency.
- If possible, stay on the phone until the dispatcher tells you to hang up.
- If you are uncomfortable walking to your car after class, call 704.330.6632 and one of our security associates will escort you to your vehicle.
The security dispatcher on Central Campus will dispatch the nearest security associate or police to assist you.
As we transition from summer and the face the change in weather would you be ready if there were an emergency? Be prepared: throughout September there will be activities across the country to promote emergency preparedness.
Most Common Hazards
Take a minute and think about how you would approach each emergency.
One goal of Homeland Security is to educate the public about how to prepare for emergencies, including natural disasters, biological and chemical threats, radiation emergencies, and terrorist attacks.
Today, we can do much to prepare for the impact of the many hazards we face in our everyday life including natural hazards like floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes and widespread serious illness such as the H1N1 flu virus pandemic.
