Welcome to the first Continuing Education Safety Overview presentation. We hope to share with you today the progress we made during the Fall semester and our plans to move forward with safety reviews and safety improvements during the Spring semester.
But first, a little bit of housekeeping. The schedule shows that this morning session will last for three hours. The morning session will be offered in two parts. In Part 1 we’ll be presenting an overview of activities and initiatives in Continuing Education to review and address safety issues at our campuses. Our presentation will be followed by a 10 minute break, and then you will hear from the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services.
In Part 1, we will introduce the members of the newly-formed CE Safety and Facilities Committee, and give you some information about the activities of this committee. Members of the committee will provide an overview of the Safety Review process being developed by the committee. I will also provide some information on our upcoming review of the accident report process.Next, we will discuss Emergency Preparedness activities, including Campus-Community Emergency Response Team Training, or C-CERT, as well as a brief discussion of the e2CE emergency notification system.We will next discuss three items related to campus safety. Members of the Safety and Facilities Committee will discuss evacuation drills and on-line safety training opportunities, and I will discuss our work with College Police on “Vulnerability” surveys on our campuses. I will then give a brief update on facility planning and construction, one of the areas covered by the Safety and Facilities Committee. Finally, we will have a few minutes for your questions, comments, and input.
First , let’s introduce the CE Safety and Facilities Committee. Our Safety and Facilities committee was formed this year. We meet here at ECC on the third Tuesday of every month at 2:30. The members of the committee are the Resident Deans and Office Managers of each campus, as well as Faculty representatives, a DSPS representative, our CE Regional Facilities Officer, a College Police representative, and the District Risk Manager. We encourage and invite any interested faculty members to participate. Will the members of the Safety and Facilities Committee who are with us today please stand and be recognized.
These are the members of the committee representing Centre City and the Cesar E. Chavez campus. As you can see we do not currently have faculty representatives from these campuses.
These are the representatives from ECC and Mid-City, and we do have faculty representatives from these campuses.
These are the representatives from North City and West City – we currently do not have a faculty representative from North City.
These are the other representatives on the committee. If you have any input or suggestions for the committee, please contact one of the representatives – either at your campus or in your program.
Members of the Safety and Facilities Committee will be conducting campus safety reviews, we review accident reports completed at each campus, and we will work on developing safety and emergency plans for each campus. In addition, the majority of the members of the Safety and Facilities Committee have completed the C-CERT training – we will discuss C-CERT training a little later in this presentation.
And now, Bill Borinski and Lori Correll will discuss the safety review they completed at ECC. This review is being used by the committee to implement safety reviews at all other campuses.
One of the items the committee will be working on this semester is to review the completion of accident reports – both for faculty and staff and for students – at each campus. We have learned that our current processes may differ from campus to campus, and that forms may not always be readily available when an accident occurs. As a result, we will be developing a uniform system for distributing information about the accident report processes at all of our campuses so that all faculty and staff will have the information they need to document accidents that occur on our campuses and in our classes (including our off-campus locations).
Now we move to emergency preparedness. One major component of the District’s emergency preparation is the District-sponsored Campus-Community Emergency Response Team, or C-CERT training. This three-day training is based on the national CERT program developed by FEMA, and is presented by college police and outside consultants.
What is covered in the C-CERT training? The three-day training includes instructions on basic first aid, CPR (including the use of the AED machines on our campuses), fire safety, the psychological effects of a disaster and how they impact our ability to respond and the actions and reactions of those around us, information on light search and rescue to assist in locating the injured and evaluating the safety of a building following a disaster (and including triage to identify the severity of injuries, provide basic first aid, and assist those injured while waiting for medical assistance to arrive), and many practical exercises to apply the skills learned and the information covered during the workshop.
This is the Continuing Education C-CERT class of 2012. 40 CE staff, faculty and administrators participated in the three day training in January. As a result of this training, we now have 49 CE staff, faculty and administrators who are C-CERT trained. CE has more C-CERT trainees that City or Mesa, and only three less than Miramar. If you have completed the C-CERT training and are in the audience today, please stand and be recognized for your commitment to safety and emergency response.Additional trainings will be scheduled later this year, so please let me know if you are interested in participating in a future training.
So who are the C-CERT trained individuals on our campuses? All Deans and Office Managers have completed the training, as well as faculty and staff at every campus. These are the individuals trained at Centre City. We have six individuals trained at this campus.
At Cesar E. Chavez we have three individuals who completed the training.
At ECC we have 12 trained C-CERT responders, including President Beebe.
At Mid-City we have 9 individuals trained.
At North City we also have 9 individuals trained.
And at West City we have 10 individuals trained. We will be calling meetings of the C-CERT trainees at each of our campuses this semester to review the skills and tools developed during the training and to discuss practical application of these skills and ways to use these skills to improve disaster response at each campus.
Now we have shared some information about the areas covered in the training, but the best way to understand what is included in the training is to hear from someone who has recently completed it. And so, to share their experience going through the C-CERT training and what they learned from the training, we have two graduates of the recent C-CERT program from our West City Campus – Christy Pettis and Joan McKenna.
Another aspect of emergency preparation that is specific to Continuing Education is the new “e2CE” emergency notification system. Following the power outage that effected all CE campuses in September, when email systems were down and campus phone systems were not working, it became clear that a mechanism for sending emergency notifications to students, faculty and staff was necessary, and that the system should include the ability to send text messages (as this was the only reliable means of communication during the power outage). Now that power outage was quickly followed by the fugitive situation here at ECC, when the campus went on lock-down as San Diego Police searched the campus for a suspect, and this situation further underscored increased the need for an emergency notification system. The system was quickly implemented in the fall, and is known as e2CE.Anyone who has signed up for the e2CE notification system will receive important notifications by either email or text message, or in the case of an emergency by both text message and email. Information provided to the e2CE notification system will be protected as confidential and will only be used by Continuing Education – it will not be sold to or shared with any other organization. Please sign up (if you haven’t already) and encourage your students to sign up. It is easy to sign up – use the link from our SDCE website (the link is listed here on this slide).
Now we will move to some specific safety issues that the committee will be addressing this semester. The first issue is the need for Campus Evacuation Drills. The Safety and Facilities committee will be working to implement evacuation drills at all CE campuses this semester. We will use the model developed and in use at our Mid-City campus. To talk about the process at Mid-City are two members of the safety and facilities committee, Roy Hernandez and Alma McGee.
For our next safety topic, Bill Borinski will review available on-line safety training through the District and the use of these training modules in the Career-Technical program.
One final project we are working on this semester is to have “Vulnerability Reviews” conducted at our campuses by College Police. During these reviews, College Police officers will assist us in identifying improvements we can make and practices we can implement to improve safety and security at each of our campuses. Perhaps lighting could be improved in certain areas, or a practice of propping open doors during break could be making the campus more vulnerable. The vulnerability reviews will most likely result in a list of physical improvements and changes in daily practice that, when implemented, will help to make the campus safer. We started the process before the holidays at our Cesar E. Chavez campus with a College Police visit and review of daytime activities, and a follow-up visit to review evening activity will be scheduled. The on-site reviews will be followed by a written report, giving suggestions to improve the safety on campus.
Miramar A-100 building – meetings with architect to design remodel. Construction will not begin until new Miramar admin building is complete and Miramar adminisration move from A-100 building to new building.
ECC expansion – three phases. Currently in Phase 1- renovation of old ”Skills Center” rooms and construction of offices and classrooms – originally to end August 2012. Have experienced construction delays – primarily in the new wing for offices area due to unexpected underground conduits – current completion estimate is late Fall 2012. Next is Phase 2 – renovate existing office space – then Phase 3 – demolish bungalows.
Cesar E. Chavez campus – delays in city and DSA approvals – District is currently addressing parking concerns – meetings with City taking place now – should begin construction later this Spring.
North City – Parking Garage complete – beginning construction of classroom building – 18 month construction timetable - completion in 2013.
Linda Vista – construction well underway. Interior work to begin. Completion by December 2012.
And that concludes our formal presentation, but we would be happy to answer any questions and accept any comments regarding safety on our campuses at this time.
