T-Ducks in a Row #121 – ALERT: Campus Safety Video to Be Videotaped on Campus

WHAT?  Please be aware that a series of emergency response scenarios will be videotaped at various locations around campus the week of June 23-27, as detailed below.

WHY?  Our Thunderwater Organizational Learning Institute (TOLI) will be launching in August a new comprehensive Keeping Safe in a Campus Emergency video and online training module for Richland employees to view to fulfill the campus safety portion of our 2014-2015 professional development requirements.

WHO?  Our College Police and Office of Emergency Management have worked very closely with the TOLI staff, theater faculty, student actors, and our videographer to create a compelling, informative video presentation.

WHY?  All Richland College faculty and staff need to be informed, trained and prepared to respond to help keep our students and colleagues as safe as possible in the event of any one of these various types of emergencies.

WHAT ELSE?  Specific faculty and student actors and participants have been identified and rehearsed for these video segments, so please do not be alarmed or join in or impede the simulations as they are being staged and videotaped.  Thank you for your cooperation.
