External Threat Lockdown

An external threat lockdown is where there is a situation in the surrounding community that could be a threat to the campus. Once a EXTERNAL LOCKDOWN is initiated:
  • A timely warning will be immediately distributed campus wide.
  • All Outside/entrance doors will be locked.
  • Monitors will be placed at some doors to allow authorized access.
  • Classes and all other campus functions may continue as normal.
  • No one will be allowed to leave until an all clear is given.

It will be the responsibility of Security Officer on duty to secure all doors and assign available personnel to assist in securing the facility from an External Threat and/or to call in help to assist if needed.
