Emergency Notification John Tyler Community College uses the following tools to notify employees, students, and the public of an emergency situation: fire alarms, e-mail, voicemail, indoor emergency call boxes, electronic bulletin boards, web site (www.jtcc.edu), security staff, area emergency coordinators, and media outlets.
Evacuation of Building(s) If a fire alarm sounds or you are ordered to evacuate by security, leave the building by the nearest marked exit (noted on the evacuation maps posted in each room). Do not use
elevators. Unless otherwise instructed, you should proceed to the following locations:
Chester Campus Bird Hall – Parking Lot F Godwin Hall – Parking Lot C Goyne Hall – Parking Lot A Moyar Hall – Parking Lot F Nicholas Student Center – Parking Lot A Physical Plant – Parking Lot H Midlothian Campus Academic Building – Parking Lot D Administration Building – Parking Lot C Physical Plant – Parking lot next to Physical Plant building Nursing Facility (CJW) Front parking lot assembling as close as possible to JohnstonWillis Drive Gateway Outreach Center (Petersburg) Across the street in the courthouse parking lot CCWA – Featherstone Parking lot in front of building toward Huguenot Road Severe Weather/Tornado Warnings In the case of severe weather, you may be instructed to proceed to the College’s severe weather shelters.
Chester Campus Bird Hall – B124/B132 Godwin Hall – G105 /G105a Goyne Hall – Bathrooms (A107/A109) Moyar Hall – 1st Floor Students, M134, 2nd Floor Students, M114 Nicholas Student Center – N102/N102A Physical Plant – Moyar Hall, M134 Midlothian Campus Academic Bldg. – A113/A115 Administration Building – B115b Physical Plant – A113/A115 Nursing Facility (CJW) J114, J129, interior office behind receptionist desk Gateway Outreach Center (Petersburg) Basement CCWA – Featherstone F101, F108b, restrooms in suite 108 Shelter in Place Certain emergency situations may require you to shelter in place (remain in your office or classroom). In such instances, you must remain in place until an all clear is given by the Incident Commander.
In the case of a fire, follow these steps as you evacuate the building:
• If it can be done safely, close all windows and internal doors.
• If you are in an area filled with smoke, drop to the floor, and keep your head no more than 8 – 12 inches off the floor.
• Before opening any door, feel it for heat. Do not open doors that are hot.
Hazardous Spill In the event of a hazardous or suspected hazardous spill, secure the area, notify your supervisor and those who work nearby, and report the incident to Security Services.
Bomb Threat or Suspicious Device/Package Found If you find a suspicious device/package, do not attempt to pick up the device/package. Do NOT sound the fire alarm, use 2-way radios or use cell phones as they may trigger an explosive device. Evacuate the immediate area and report the device to the nearest security officer.
Should you receive a phoned-in bomb threat, try to get as much information as possible from the caller, and then immediately report the call to Security Services.
(A Bomb Threat Call Form may be found in the Emergency Response plan at https://intranet.jtcc.edu.) Suspicious/Disruptive Person on Campus If you have reason to believe that a person at a John Tyler facility may represent a potential threat to others, report your concerns to the Dean of Student Services and to Security Services.
• Lock yourself in the room you are in if possible.
• If communication is available, call 911 and then Security Services.
• Don’t stay in the open hallway.
• Do not sound the fire alarm. A fire alarm would signal the occupants in the other rooms to evacuate the building, and thus, place them in potential harm as they attempt to exit.
• Barricade yourself in the room with furniture or anything you can push up against the door.
• Protect yourself with any available barriers such as concrete walls, desks or tables.
• Lock windows and close blinds.
• Turn all lights and audio equipment off.
• Turn cell phones and pagers to silent mode.
• Try to stay calm and be as quiet as possible.
• If for some reason you are caught in an open area such as a hallway or lounge, seek the closest available shelter.
Note: The previous information cannot cover every possible situation that might occur. If there is gunfire or explosives discharged, you should take cover immediately. After the disturbance, seek emergency treatment if necessary.
Area Emergency Coordinators Area Emergency Coordinators are available throughout the College to notify, direct and assist in the event of an emergency. A list of area emergency coordinators may be found in the Emergency Response Plan at https://intranet.jtcc.edu.
