There have been twenty-two (22) school shootings in America since the beginning of 2018. Your CSEA leadership is concerned about your safety and continues to work with the District and the respective college administrations to implement more measures to ensure the security and welfare of all employees and students of this district.
In light of the reality we are facing, we encourage classified staff to take the lead in the effort to protect themselves and their area. Someone in your department (perhaps yourself) needs to be designated to create a safety plan specifically for your work area and establish a safety plan that will ensure survival. As recommended, keep the safety plan for your area basic and simple. By working with and through your dean, director or manager, plans created and in place during an incident of an active shooter can increase the percentages of survival and greatly reduce the chances of serious injury or fatalities. If you would like assistance in your work area in creating a safety plan, President Scott Ferguson Greene will be happy to assist in the process in collaboration with the campus police.
