Lockdown Drill to be Conducted at SCF Lakewood Ranch Nov. 14
(Bradenton, Fla., Nov.5, 2012) — As part of our college's incident response and disaster preparedness programs, SCF Lakewood Ranch has been selected as the site of a Shelter-in-Place/Lockdown and Evacuation Drill that will be conducted Wednesday, November 14.
The drill is a coordinated, supervised drill (not a simulated exercise) designed to test our College's emergency notification systems, including speakers, and the critical functional responsibilities of faculty and staff. The drill willinclude ALL buildings, departments and classrooms, including students, faculty, staff and visitors -- everybody on campus at the time of the drill. Local emergency response agencies have been invited to participate as monitors.
The Nov. 14 drill will provide the College and local law enforcement officials with an opportunity to evaluate our operational plan for responding to an emergency on our Lakewood Ranch campus, similar to drills that have been conducted on SCF's Venice and Bradenton campuses.
