Stories From The SouthEast ShakeOut

Today our campus focused on earthquake preparedness. At 10:17 the announcement was broadcast to all classrooms, and the Children's College (our on site care for students attending classses). Thirty Safety Committee members went to all classrooms, the lobby, and even the smoking area outside. We found both faculty and students under the desks. The children responded quickly, and crouched under their small tables. We repeated the drill for our evening students. The event was a HUGE success, well received by the administration, faculty and students. Thank you for putting together such a great website with wonderful resources.
