The University will be participating in the statewide tornado drill at 9:45 a.m. Tuesday, March 11. We are aware this is during spring break. This provides an opportunity for faculty and staff who are on campus to review our shelter procedures. Stay tuned for more information.
|Emergency Response Training|
The dates have been set for the spring sessions of the Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) Training - March 18 and 25; April 1, 8, 15, 22, 29; May 6 and 13. All sessions will be held from 2-4:30 p.m. At the conclusion of this training, participants will have gained skills to help them assess and respond to an emergency situation. Participants of the training will not only be more prepared to assist the University and Danville communities in the event of a natural or other disaster, but also their families and neighbors.
Participants must commit to all nine dates because the final session is a simulation activity that brings into play all of the skills and information from the previous sessions. If you are interested in taking part in this essential piece of the university's emergency response efforts, please contact Bill Woodward no later than March 11 to reserve your spot.
