Seminole State College of Florida’s Emergency Response Team, in partnership with Seminole County and other local agencies, will conduct an emergency preparedness exercise at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus on Friday morning, March 25. The specific location is not being announced in advance.
In preparation for the exercise, parking lots 1, A, B and D will be closed between 7 a.m. and noon on Friday. Those entering the campus during those times, should use the lots south of the pond outside the Partnership Center (South Lot) and east of the Professional Automotive Training Center (North Lot) as alternates.
The exercise will help the College and local first responders test response and communication during a campus emergency.
During the exercise, first responders and other resources will be deployed as if an actual incident is occurring. Signs indicating emergency training will be in the area of the exercise.
Seminole State will post updates about the training exercise via its emergency website. Test alerts also will be sent to classrooms and offices at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus through the Emergency Alert Phone System. The campus and local communities should be aware this is only a test. Participants will wear colored vests.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office and the Seminole County Department of Public Safety are assisting with the exercise.
Please contact Safety and Security at 407.708.2178 if you have any questions, or visit the Seminole State Alert website.
The Seminole State administration, staff and faculty have taken a proactive approach to emergency preparedness and response planning in anticipation of a wide range of potential emergencies. For more information, please visit www.seminolestate.edu/alert.
