Emergency Response Procedure

Campus Personnel: Electronic communication:  Generally, communication with campus community personnel will occur through electronic means.  Central’s emergency communication system, website, and email will be used extensively for this purpose.  Should electronic communication be disrupted, a series of “live person” communication systems will be used to communicate with campus personnel.  These will include but not limited to utilizing the Pella Police loud speaker system, utilizing the speaker system in the chapel’s carillon, bull horns, gathering all campus personnel in various meeting locations, etc. Communication content and frequency will be determined by the president and CEMT.

Off-Campus Personnel:  Parents, Media and VisitorsEmergency situations attract interest beyond the campus community.  The president (or designee) will provide updates to these groups.
