It is the policy of the College that all emergencies be reported immediately to the Sterling Police Department by calling 911 (8-911 from a campus phone) and then to a College employee in the building. For non-emergency matters, contact the Student Life Office or the Residence Life staff member on duty as posted in each residence hall. To view the campus emergency preparedness plan: Click Here
Tornado: In the event of a tornado warning (the city warning siren will sound continuously), move immediately to an approved tornado shelter. Each building has the approved location diagrammed on bulletin boards throughout the building. Listen to KSKU 106.1 fm for an all-clear signal. Each time the warning siren sounds, a tornado has been sighted and indicates a need to take cover immediately. Be prepared to take cover in the case of a tornado watch, tuning to KSKU for more information about the storm. Lightning and Hail: These natural elements kill many people each year. Take cover immediately. In a severe storm, unplug electrical appliances and stay away from windows.
Call 911 (8-911 from a campus phone) to report the fire and then evacuate the building immediately. Stay low in smoke-filled areas. Inform the fire fighters of persons trapped in the building then stay out of the way of the work. See a Resident Assistant for more details on meeting locations outside of the Residence Halls.
If a threat is received, gather as much information as possible about the caller’s voice, location of the alleged bomb, time of expected explosion, and time of call. Report this information to 911 (8-911 from a campus phone) and then to a College employee in the building. The building will be evacuated by the employee.
