In a continuing effort to enhance personal safety and emergency readiness on campus, Cambrian College is planning its first lockdown drill of the year, which will be held on March 21, 2013, at 9:45 a.m. at its Barrydowne campus.


“This drill will involve the entire campus, including staff, students, faculty, contractors, and visitors,” said John Hammill, Cambrian’s Safety and Security Services Manager. “We introduced lockdown drills in 2011 to make sure that students, staff, faculty and visitors are familiar with emergency procedures and to test all of our internal communications tools. After each drill, campus security, lockdown observers, and safety officers evaluate the College’s response to improve our level of preparedness in the event of a situation requiring a campus-wide lockdown.  We conduct this exercise often, recognizing the need to prepare people who may be working, studying, or living on campus, including new students, staff, faculty and visitors.”


All faculty, staff, and students will remain on campus during the drill and will be informed of the lockdown exercise before it happens. Visitors will be advised of the drill through signage posted on exterior doors and through the College information monitors.
